Amazon.com's new navigation Opened my mailbox and lookee-here, a message from Amazon.com's Jeff Bezo's for me? Yup. Looks like he's not only trying to push every product under the sun, but also acceptance of his company's new navigation.

At least they concede that their current navigation strategy is hurtling inevitably toward dack.com's comic vision of layer after layer after layer after layer of tabs. Is Jakob Nielsen in the house?

I can't help but feel that anything that needs that much instructional text is doomed to be a miserable failure.

It's great that they're asking for feedback, but just give us a page where we can test it for gosh sake.

They say that the reason they're changing the navigation system is because with the current one they're not able to add more tabs. But I'm wondering: why add more tabs? what tabs are left to add? is Amazon.com going to be a supermarket or something?

Yet another reason to go to bn.com. They have better design, they limit themselves to things that you could probably find in a bookstore, and ever since I found their poster section (Book cover posters? Who's been reading my mind?) they can do no wrong.
