Study Q170030. Menu Options
Question -
There has been a great deal of controversy recently about the optimal length of menus on web pages.

Some people argue that shorter menus with few general options, are better because they are easier to scan. Others argue that longer menus are better because they include more options and therefore allow for a more accurate selection.

In general terms, what do you think is the optimal size of a menu?
