If things are positioned the traditional way, customers can easily get on and find what they need. No need for unfamiliar and unnecessary buttons that your visitors are not familiar with.

A traditional button doesn’t stress out your web visitors. A traditional form doesn’t make anyone question what that particular field is for. To sum it all up, a web design that embraces some of the traditional ways enables users to forget about the construction of your website and instead focus on the great content that you have in store for them.
