Nielsen: Alphabetical Sorting Must (Mostly) Die

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/alpha-sorting.html

“Ordinal sequences, logical structuring, time lines, or prioritization by importance or frequency are usually better than A–Z listings for presenting options to users.”

A really informative and hands-on exploration of presenting stuff through lists or indices. Especially interesting since the small case presented is similar to many of the Magento-shops I’ve seen lately. Just read it and let the thought grow for a while.
