I think the idea is sort of okay (grouping the navigation items and
positioning them close to the content) but the execution is buggy:
- The not-selected tabs don't look like tabs; they look a lot like buttons.
- A click leads to a new page, but not at the right height (an anchor (#)
would have done wonders)
- The content behind the Product Info tab first shows me offers and info on
other books, and only then start listing some characteristics of the book.
- the list with "Similar Books" at the bottom should IMO be placed outside
the grey-area-with-tabs; it deals with other books.
(another bug: the "no" button used to make me answer the question "was this
review helpful to you?" has probably been altered and the artist forgot to
make the background transparent)
Am I mistaken or did Amazon also recently introduce The Page You Made? I
visited that page 5 minutes ago, but can't seem to find on other page. It's
gone now :-( Is this what Alan Cooper meant when he said to only put useful
links at a page and did Amazon decide that the page is no longer useful for
me? I do see a section "Your Recent History".oh wait, there it is again :-)
