- Defaulting to the sign-up form? 3 answers
I have noticed an increasing trend the last year towards emphasizing the "register" button rather than "log in".
Often log in is not even a button, just a link. I understand the desire to simplify the process for first time users, but I find it strange, since you typically will register once, but log in several times.
What is the rationale behind this practice?
