When it comes to the best user experience, it all boils down to the details. Mouse-over effects can dramatically enhance your website user experience and turn the interface into something incredibly appealing and eye-catching. Not to mention that it makes the website seem alive. Mouse-over effects are easy to create. You can use either Java or CSS for fun effects. You can even learn how to wiggle an image. The mouse-over effects occur only when a user moves the mouse or the digital pen over a particular area. In this case, when you move the cursor over the designated area, the text could be moving, music could be playing, or some image could be popping.
Such effects counter poor user experience. For example, steer clear of websites with ‘mystery meat navigation’. No, we do not mean the ‘mystery meat’ (that no one really knows what contains) found in your favorite cold meats, but links whose destination is not visible until the user points their cursor at it. Sometimes even ‘click here’ links with no destination frustrate users since it results in poor user experience. Let’s not mention the poor search engine optimization (SEO) engendered by such links.
