Why Are the “Experts” Still Saying This?
“Yahoo Email Delivers That Desktop Feel Most Users Expect”
I haven’t used the new Yahoo mail so I don’t know if it’s true or not but I have a problem with the statement in general. Is it really true that “most” users expect a desktop experience? I don’t know the answer, but I don’t think it’s true for me.
I’m also pretty familiar with a group of users I call college kids. Most of them have had very little interaction with desktop apps, but lots of experience using the web. In a few years when they reach professional age will they really be looking for a “desktop” experience on their websites?
