Related to my ux rant yesterday
Filed under #ux, #antipatterns and #weblog
HN discusses this article: https://www.filamentgroup.com/lab/scrollbars/
Seems HN mostly agrees with me today.
For me this is a perfect example of what I wrote about yesterday: the perfect ux design doesn't exist.
In this case the author has gone to great lengths to create a better ux, only be met with “get off my lawn already!”
I sympathize with people who experience unfair criticism of their hard work.
In this case though, I think the criticism is valid: please please please leave our windows scrollbars alone. There's a reason why we use Windows or Linux – and that reason isn't the price in my case but rather that I far prefer Windows and classic (Gnome 2, KDE) Linux ux to Mac ux.
