Participants were then asked whether one of the websites felt easier to use. Six of the 40 participants had no preference, but of the 34 that did have a preference, 100% of them indicated that the website with the sticky navigation was easier or faster to use.
As we redesigned the header of QUOTE.fm we also tried sticking it to the top so that you always have access to the menu and your notifications. We felt that it’s really good to use and doesn’t distract too much and also doesn’t take away too much screen space even on a 11″ MacBook Air. It also works great on the iPad and especially on the iPhone it’s very handy. Seems like we made the right call on this one.
