Webdesigner Depot has been lucky to get an interview with Jakob Nielsen himself.
Among other things, they talk about:
- How recruiting representative users is the only place you shouldn't skimp in a usability test – everything else is negotiable and can be done on the cheap.
- That even though some studies have found that many don't use breadcrumbs, Jakob finds them useful because they are lightweight design elements, harmless to those not using them.
- That it's ok with Jakob that designers make hard-to-use artistic websites when they don't serve a utilitarian purpose.
