Difference between Heuristic Evaluation and Expert Review

Hi all,

In Heuristic evaluation, evaluator evaluates design with reference of
design principles to find out the usability issues.
How “Expert Review” is different from this? Is there any major
difference or it’s the same?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Kishor

As well, if you are a designer who joined an early-stage startup or started your own, what do you wish you'd know beforehand?

Mega Drop-Down Navigation menus

Hi all,

I’m putting together some recommendations for using mega drop-down
navigation.

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

I’m interested in the opinion of the iXDA list on whether the
top-level navigation items should lead to pathway (or landing) pages,
or whether they can simply act as non-hyperlink triggers to the
drop-down (so no hand cursor)?

Also, if there is no pathway page, how should this impact breadcrumb
trails?

For instance:

Home > Sports > Windsurfing

- Should ‘Sport

stencils.

Best practice for for number of items in a dropdown on a web form?

Hello everyone. This is my first post on IxDA. :) I've been
developing web applications for a few years now, and usability has
always been a priority, but I have only really started obessesing
about usability in the last year or so.

A colleague and I had a discussion about the maximum number of
elements that should be used in a (select) dropdown menu on a web
form.

He thinks that fifteen is the maximum. Me? I'm not quite sure what
to think.

Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.
