    8. 8. What about other types of websites? • Web Design guru Jakob Nielson said the ‘F’ word • Software Usability and Research Lab (SURL) studies show that this does not hold true • Studies suggest that users’ viewing patterns depend on the nature of the web page (text-rich versus image-rich) but also by the users’ tasks (browsing versus searching).
    9. 9. Image Website Task 1Task 1 Search for a Product Category Task 2Task 2 Browse for a Product Categories Task 3Task 3 Search for Non-existent Item
    10. 10. Browse for a Product • research suggests that users tended to spread their visual attentions uniformly over the image-rich test page. Test subjects tended to be drawn to the product images equally across the visible page.
    11. 11. Search for a Product Category • A more surprising outcome centered around users’ viewing patterns when searching for an image corresponding to a target product category. Users seemed to instantaneously identify the correct category image.
    12. 12. Search for a non-existent category • Viewing patterns tended toward those associated with browsing. In fact, the gaze pattern heat map suggests that their visual attention was even more broadly and uniformly spread out over the page.
