I found this to be an interesting article on how people seem to be changing the way they browse and read web pages over the last ten years.

It emphasises the need for continued use of flexible design in creating pages.

The one factor they seem to have ignored in their study is if there is a trend in the way designers are laying out their pages and how that trend might be affecting the way people browse.

Over all, it's an intersting article.

Stay times were short, 25% of all documents were displayed for less than 4 seconds and 52% of all visits were shorter than 10 seconds with a peak value located between 2 and 3 seconds

Good read. Thanks for the link, hyperbole.

yeah... I always look at what I just entered into google as well. Seriously that data needs a sensible hypothesis.

Nevermind, I found it. "No. of users" 25. Might have been a single control freak .

Don't get me wrong, their advice is good in my opinion, but their data is soft.

I also wonder how much of that could be attributed to a user scrolling down the page, stopping on information passing in the top left/middle area of the page and clicking an item. That click grouping could easily be a result of search engine conditioning. Interestin stuff.
