Where Usability Meets Desirability: Visual Design with Personas and Goals

Visual design contributes to usability by clarifying hierarchy and
relationships, making type more readable, and making screens less
cluttered. It enhances desirability by appealing to our aesthetic sense
and emotions.

Fwd: search results display

This may be a stupid question but it leaves me stumped!

Why does google (and other search engines) display the url under each search
result? I mean, it's already hyperlinked to the search result title, right?
Why spend extra line space for each result? Does it help the user to know
the url of the page he may go to?
Any answers?

search, results, refine


Does anyone have examples of a search interface where the user can conduct a
broad search, then continue to refine the search by filtering and sorting,
or modify the search or begin a new search.

I am interested in cases where the date/time ranges are involved.

On a related note - is it good practice to let users conduct a broad search
or limit the initial search and then have the user refine the search using
additional properties?

Do end users understand the concepts of filtering and sorting?
When is the result set too large for the user to make the next choice (in
this context) ?

UXBookClubs (Canada? Online)

Canadians et al,

I know of Mario, and I know of one other Canadian who has expressed
interest. Curious, are there other Canadians here interested in discussing
books? Should it be online since there are few of us over a large area? Are
others interested in an online discussion, even if it's posted on the site
somehow rather than in the mailing list? Or are people happy discussing
books right on the list? Thoughts?

Disability Discrimination Act and AJAX

Hi All,Can anyone shed some light on whether using AJAX makes a website non
compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act? I know there would be
violations using some controls of Ajax and not in others, but is there some
study/information on this somewhere (about which controls are non compliant
etc)? Would appreciate any help on this topic..

Prototyping with OmniGraffle

Hi all,

I realize there isn't much talk on this list about how to prototype with OmniGraffle, so for those of you who use it to make your wireframes and deliverables, you may find this post I wrote useful:
