As a product manager, I am trying to help my development team by setting up boundaries and policies: what browsers to support, what resolution images must be hosted, how many fonts can we use, and general accessibility best practices. These have all been reoccurring points of contention over the last few months, and we agreed that boundaries would help us move forward with less stress, and with more consistency.
In an effort to help the team make an informed decision, I am doing my best to educate myself on these topics. In the past, UX exchange has been a great help for me with general questions outside of my comfort zone.
My question to you:
How did you inform your policy decisions? A browser policy seems easy enough to tackle using Google Analytics data, but non-data backed answers such as retina and accessibility support, seem tough to justify one way or the other, outside of reading industry articles.
Another issue is that of font support. Anything I should educate myself on to make an informed decision here? One side (design) would like as many fonts as possible, the other (development) would like to limit the usage for page weight issues.
While I understand that this forum may contain a UX bias, it would be great to hear if anyone has undertaken a similar tasks, and if the end result was successful.
