Considering that many aren’t there yet, still some good points, especially in regards to thinking about mobile first and foremost. Responsive design.
Other common sources of irritation were the pointless presence of instructions as well as any other use of the English language. While human users rarely read instructions, the users in this study didn’t read at all. (there are definitely some user experience and usability points being made here… despite the obvious fun of the whole article – enjoy!) http://www.nngroup.com/articles/mobile-usability-cats/

At various times, depending on their algorithms, some search engines have truncated keywords at a certain limit 25 words, even 250 characters. Any other that
