Keys to successful drop-down navigation

This evening, I found myself clicking and clicking to try to make a drop-down navigation pane go away. I finally resorted to page-refresh (cmd+R). That’s when I saw my mistake. Or the mistake of the designers.

Invisible scroll bars lead to search results that seem MIA

Designers should present search results in a place and manner where the searcher can see them without needing to adjust her browser.

In other words, after I click “search” one of two things needs to happen:

  1. The click launches a new page and the search results are at the top, the first thing I see OR
  2. The search results appear directly below the search field or button and are immediately viewable and obvious. w pretty clear that there are search results to be seen.
