Pagination, those 1 2 3 .. Next page links at the bottom of a page of search results or content. Are they dying a slow death? I think so and when you step back and think about it, it makes perfect sense. Why do we need it? If you scroll to the bottom of a page of content surely that’s indicating you want to see more? So, website, load some more and save me the click and time!
Note the back to top button top right in the screencast as well, nice touch!
Twitter has a big “more” button at the bottom which is somewhere in between traditional pagination and where I think we’re heading – a paginationless world. I think they should just load more tweets as you scroll and save us some clicking.
