I work at a place where they are keen on reversing the order of the navigation items on mobile menus.
The menu is at the bottom of the screen, and the order is reversed, so Home (basically the three most important menu items) are on the bottom of the list while on desktop they would be most left of the list:
Home | About Us | Pricing | Whaterver
Whatever Pricing About Us Home
I have found one case online here where this practise is suggested. To me, it is very counter intuitive since logically the most important thing is on top, and not on the bottom of the list.
I can see that the bottom items are more easily reachable with the thumb like this, but I imagine users would be spending more time trying to find the Home button in the list, since they would start to look at the top of the list.
Is there any extensive testing done on this subject? Any insights?
