Breadcrumbs (or breadcrumb trail) is a secondary navigation system that shows a user’s location on a site or web app.

In this article, we explore the use of breadcrumbs on websites and discuss some best practices for applying breadcrumb trails to your own website or application.

Improving Progress Bar UX/UI Design Indicators and Feedback Notifications

Visibility of system status is one of the most important rules of UI/UX design.

The goal behind this rule is pretty obvious — to minimize user tension you should provide feedback to the user about what is happening with the app within a reasonable amount of time.

Don’t keep the users guessing — tell the user what’s happening. And one of the most common forms of such feedback is a progress indicator.

In this article, we’ll give you an overview of the main types of the progress tracker indicators and the use cases for them.

Web application testing: 6-step guide how to test a website

More and more web applications are being developed these days. And with each line of code being written, the potential for bugs arises.

Generally speaking, the costs of fixing bugs increase exponentially the later you find them.

The Systems Sciences Institute at IBM found that “the cost to fix an error found after product release was 4 to 5 times more than one uncovered during design, and up to 100 times more than one identified in the maintenance phase”.

And a study by the University of Cambridge found that software bugs cause economic damage of $312 billion per year worldwide

These numbers highlight the importance of finding bugs as early as possible and thoroughly testing an application before it is released.

That is where website application testing comes in.

User behavior analytics for SaaS: best tips and examples for 2023

User behavior analytics are part of the puzzle for a SaaS company’s success. They unlock the insights, both said and unsaid, by customers, and create better product decisions for customers over time.

Ever so often, a morning for a SaaS product manager could look like this: 

  1. Grab a stimulating morning beverage (I like coffee myself)
  2. Check the customer feedback received
  3. Monitor customer support tickets
  4. Look at the roadmap
  5. Dig deeper into heatmaps and user behavior analytics
  6. Align with colleagues on what to build next

All of this seems great on paper, but in practice, this gets tricky. Why? Did you ever find yourself in a “paralysis by analysis” situation? If so, there’s too much information to make sense of it, and now you’re blocked from moving forward.
