Google explained why they are doing this: we're working towards introducing new authentication solutions that complement traditional passwords And later down in the blog: This new Google account sign-in flow will provide the following advantages: Preparation for future authentication solutions that complement passwords Reduced ...

I think combining the two could will be confusing. The reason why companies create two distinct paths is because those two are different paths. What happens if someone thinks they have an account, and then when they don't and they start registering and they don't want that, what then? This is forcing a user to register if they don't have a login, and that's ...

Which pendulum? We can not say that this is a pendulum between flat and skeuomorphic design.I would rather use another metaphor: Evolution. In Evolution, it is hard to see things goes backwards in general but there are also rare cases.Personally, I don't think that skeuomorphism will come back like as it is. Flat design is originated from minimalism idea ...

Edit: The answer has been accepted but I would like to clarify and improvise a few things here. First, as far as visual styles are concerned, it's better to call it realism as against skeuomorphic. Realism would be a pure visual style. Second, flat styles can be misused resulting in bad UX, which does not mean that all flat designs = bad UX. I agree that ...

I like to imagine (hope/dream) that it is pendular, like this: Naturally, as with any swing, it will probably fly backwards towards Skeuomorphism again for a while - almost as a reaction to the problems the completely flat aesthetic has created. Over time I like to think it will come to rest around that perfect middle where users are catered for ...

I would always take the user back to where they have come from. One of the reasons is that they could be cancelling, and didn't mean to get into this page. You don't want to confuse them further by taking them somewhere else where they would have to find their way out.

No, And it's pretty common too. Many times a system of search results will show a result set based on instances of words that aren't necessarily evident to the user when looking at the listed results. Some examples Ebay, with their 'search description too' option. This allows the user go through hidden fields from the context of a results list to find ...

I will share my experience as a user first. I browse https://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc/ a lot of times to watch wwdc videos. To reach the content of my interest fast I search the page for a keyword. Now in most of the cases I find more results than number of words related to my keyword appear on the screen. Obviously they are hidden in the table ...

Yes. It depends if you search or filter. You correctly said you are filtering rather than searching. So, it would confuse the user to see an entry which has no visible matches. All the more, as this filtering is usually completed with highlighting the matching search term in the results, we have nothing to highlight in this case, so users are going to ask ...

The idea that we might refer to as "pop-up" or "context-sensitive" help today seemed to pre-date "coach marks" by about seven years: Methods of displaying help information nearest to an operation point at which the help information is requested So, it seems that an Apple Patent (referring to Coach Marks) was enabled by an (at the time) seven year old IBM ...

No, it's not odd and happens quite often. For example, let's say you browse an online book store and look for a ravioli recipe. You probably won't get many books called ravioli or that have that word in a visible place, but you may get results like Italian Cuisine or Mediterranean Recipes or whatever. This is very common when using e-commerce scripts, you ...

This is a water cooler. You’ve probably used one before. Notice that the taps are red and blue. What does that mean to you? If you pushed the blue tap and hot water came out, would you surprised? Is it possible that you might burn yourself? Interactive things have perceived affordances; the way they look tells us what they do and how to use them. That’s ...

Differences: UX is an experience and therefore highly subjective. It is a qualitative subject. Quality req usually are measured, which means it is quantitative. One can measure it using surveys, but it doesnt provide actionable insights, just prove it is high enough to pass a quality gate. The real UX can be only be measured through customers or potential ...
