Today's e-tailers are laser-focused on expediting the purchasing process, so designers
to say interactive and multimedia Web design solutions are inherently counterproductive.

Souza told the E-Commerce Times. "Designers are starting to realize that if the customer
cannot accomplish his goals, the designer cannot accomplish his."
Trying to find a copy of this report to purchase... can you help me? I am a member at jup.com but could not find the report.
Interesting that this site is using Flash-based ads even as it bashes Flash.
It is nice to see that people have begun wising up. We need websites that are easily accessible. Flash and these other bells are useless and waste my time. I am not impressed.
I totally agree with above. Furthermore, bells and whistles crash
my browser (Netscape 4.74) and no, I'm not updating for the
sake of it.
There is nothing wrong with flash - it is the way it is used - it can be used badly and it can be used well - it is very powerful and can enhance a site it is used on if it is used well.
The web is an evolving medium and while usability is tantamount surely there are ways to marry good design and usability?
BTW Netscape 4.74 is a useless browser and you should upgrade to any one of the other browsers out there (ie5+, NS6 or Opera)
