Vincent Flanders’ comments: I hope to God Google slaps the Ferti*lome people in the face. Yes, their site fails to be mobile-friendly and it fails Google’s PageSpeed Insights test, but what’s worse is the navigation doesn’t work on an iPad. The iPad is bigger than any phone and many websites’ navigation looks fine on it, but Ferti*lome’s doesn’t.
Instead of giving you text commentary, I’m giving you a video. Haven’t done one in a while and I’m going to start doing them. I did this one on a Mac and I spent zero time on the video – didn’t use an external mike, didn’t try to make the wipe motions sync up with the screen, etc. One take. Because why spend more time making a video about crappy web design than the designers spent thinking about their navigation?
Oh, as the picture below demonstrates, the menu looks fine on my desktop machine; however, using side navigation is wrong. Who wants to strain their neck looking at a menu?
