comment Dropdown navigation menus - should top menu option link to content?
my users like hover menus and the menus are here to stay. This is another one of those religious anti-something movements because people didn't take enough time to get them right. That's why I am asking this question. IMHO hovered dropdowns are one of the most natural structures because people understand hierarchical structures easily. Also, they've served well for decades in DOS times.

comment Traffic lights: why yellow before green?
yes that's the correct behaviour and it works like this here in Slovenia too. But it doesn't work like this in Italy. In Italy it goes straight from Red to Green and since I just returned from there I can tell you it's quite annoying. It's easier for the eye to register both Red and Yellow turned on, than to register the movement from Red straight to Green. You lose the feeling of how long the Green was already on and it actually happened to me that drivers behind me were beeping. The effect being, I kept my eyes focused on the lights from there on and I don't think that's a good practice.

comment navigation menu for not an ordinary site content
It took me some time to accept this answer because I was the one who upvoted @Tony Bolero thinking that my idea for navigation was not at all bad. However, after a few days of thinking about it and in the meantime doing other stuff, I finally decided to go with a somewhat classic menu navigation but without dropdowns. Essentially what I ended up doing is the "pills" navigation, it looks great, it has hover support, allows for showing the currently active page, looks and feels understandable and looks nice.

comment Any actual reason for complicated UIs?
@CamiloMartin it's important to note that not everyone's motivation is the same. The motivation of "yours" FileMatrix maker might be that "he wants to test out each and every control available to him in his IDE", while someone might take his product and try to trim it down to the minimal. That's why development teams should consist of both types of people - some of the best development firms know how to do this. Also, not to be derogative at all, it has to be said that some developers know how to code but that's it. Most r not very intelligent and r very weak in general common knowledge.

@CamiloMartin You have to take the problem area into the context. It's much easier to make email marketing simple and friendly (MailChimp) than making the maintainance of a nuclear plant the same simple.

@CamiloMartin you seriously need to get two things in your mind in order.BAD design and COMPLEX design. As some already pointed out, having hundreds of options on one screen is NOT bad, when it saves some support guy or gal a few mouseclicks which are not necessary. It would be bad if they had 3 or 4 gauges there on the dashboard and when the customer called they'd need to double click few times to get to the information requested by the customer.
