‘Stacking tools upon tools may solve our problems, but it’s creating a Jenga tower of problems for our users. This paradox—that the steps we take to make it easier to help our users are inadvertently making the experience worse for them—leads to what Nicole Sullivan calls a “deadlock between developer experience [and] user experience.”’

Headless UIs place a greater cognitive load on users. It’s hard to keep track of where you are in an interface when you can’t see it. Document “landmarks,” first introduced in ARIA, let users interacting conversationally with your content by saying things like “read me the navigation for this page” or “search for wooden baby toys.”

Gmail rolls out a new design that’s both harder to use and uglier. Mystery navigation, invisible borders (the wrong lessons from iOS)—every visual change that slightly impedes usability is here. But, hey, cartoonishly rounded corners! (Welcome back, 2004.)
