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?

3848874isn;t it better to know what you click on?katerinaGreeceF35
3849737because it is easier to use the description to make a comment rather than icons. Therefore, I prefer to use the description to a survey conducted for the answers that will give me and I will reply with earnest to answer the survey. therefore, I will use the description to be able to answer a survey that was given to me and I will answer as much as possible the question of the survey are given in order to provide the best service to customers other than the user surveymakmurIndonesiaM19
