Top eight ongoing usability issues

Webmonkey has a new article by Jakob Nielsen and Hoa Loranger which highlights eight key issues for web and intranet usability that haven't 'gone away'.

The issues are an excerpt from their new book 'Prioritizing Web Usability'.

The eight are:
  • Links that don't change color when visited
  • Breaking the back button
  • Opening new browser windows
  • Pop-up windows
  • Design elements that look like advertisements
  • Violating Web-wide conventions
  • Vaporous content and empty hype
  • Dense content and unscannable text
