Build your website based on evidence, not false beliefs.

Zoltán Gócza and Zoltán Kollin have created a list of common web design misconceptions and collected data, facts, quotes and articles to separate fact from fiction about so many so called myths.

It’s an essential list for anyone working with websites, not to learn from, but to make your job of educating and providing the necessary evidence to those not in the know that bit easier.

Some of the highlights:

Myth #12: More choices and features result in higher satisfaction

Studies show that having too many options often leads to decision paralysis and frustration


Myth #13: Icons enhance usability

Many researchers have shown that icons are hard to memorize and are often highly inefficient.


Myth #25: Aesthetics are not important if you have good usability

And the last item on the list:

Myth #0: If you read lists like this one, you don’t need to do research
