Doesn’t want to frustrate consumers.
After reaching the point where average Joe now heavily influences the overall direction of the product, you will hear tech enthusiasts complain that companies are “dumbing down” everything just to please the masses.
Now, Alex Limi, Mozilla’s head of project design strategy, has raised an interesting point: should you have that many customization options that can often break sites?
Therefore, Alex Limi asks if Mozilla should really implement options that are used by very few people and that can have “disastrous effects” for the average consumer. As he says, “We’re trying to design software that can be used by everyone — that also means we have to keep them safe and not make it so easy to break a product they rely on every day.”
What’s your answer?
