Ever checkout the worlds tiniest website? I came across this during a heated forum discussion whether a website should force a visitor to scroll versus click to get to the information that they want. Programmers are notorious for wanting to develop small functionality or utilities one has to “figure out.”
Designers seem to want to never make the visitor scroll to get information. Since everyone I’ve ever hung around in the millionaire circle will tell you that half your visitors leave every time you make them click on a link, you know my stance to that question.
Yes, definitely provide the information you need to on a page where the visitors scroll whenever possible. But, just in case you get into a heated discussion with your designer or programmer, just say well, fine then, just go visit guimp.com and make me a website like that!
