Designing for the Web (09 Jan 2006)
In my opinion, the vast majority of constraints in a Web-based environment are brought about because of the limits of human interaction with technology. The Web, by its very nature, is a virtual medium accessible only via peripheral devices (computers, monitors, mice, etc.). We are constrained by what technology allows us to do, and are confined by the rules of these systems. One of the most interesting (and frustrating) aspects of the Web is that it is such a new environment that the rules are constantly changing. Designers need to adapt as necessary. This article is dedicated to some of the wonderful characteristics that make the Web, well, the Web.
