@dozens what is scroll hijacking?

Six easy and simple rules for good web design 

@schratze Anything that violates the social contract of using the trackpad/mouse, arrow keys, and/or spacebar to scroll down a page in an expected, predictable fashion. One of my LEAST favorite things.

For example:

Other "innovative navigation experiences":

@dozens @schratze that doesn't seem too annoying?

@a_breakin_glass @schratze It's bad because it breaks the way the browser works. My two golden rules are 1) Don't fuck with scrolling, and 2) Don't fuck with navigation/the back button.

These are browser behaviors. Fucking with them means your site behaves unpredictably.

You can have cute, innovative site design. But don't fuck with the basic functionality of the browser.
