Study Q170011. Icon/Text Buttons
Question -
Ignoring hypertext or hyperlinks for a moment, there is much disagreement when it comes to using icons or text buttons for navigation bars on Web sites. Some people say text buttons are preferable to icons because the meaning of icons can sometimes be unclear. Others say that icons are better because they look better and make the site look less cluttered.

When visiting a Web site that you are relatively new to, what type of navigation tools do you prefer?

3848293However, all methods are great. I just happen to prefer the Mouse-over icon button (text comes up when you put your mouse over the icon). A site with a Mouse-over icon usually looks much less cluttered.LawrenceCanadaM68
