Human Interface Guidelines
Comments on Human Interface Guidelines
The layout of elements on a website is influenced by the OS on which the interface is being designed. On the other hand, for the user, the right pattern of mouse / finger actions can differ depending on which OS is in use and the location of utility buttons on devices. Therefore it's not enough for the website to render correctly on different browsers. The workflow has to take into consideration:
- The size and orientation of the display.
- The pointing device
- Location of utility buttons, especially soft buttons such as browser config / bookmarks toolbars.
