Why the Research Against Sliders is Wrong(smartslider3.com)

    Kind of a bait and switch. The headline and lead-in imply the article is going to argue in favor of header carousels but then when you get to the meat the author is actually arguing in favor of in-content carousels like image galleries (which, as far as I know, few people have a problem with).

    Regardless, I do agree with the author - carousels definitely have a place but are often abused.

    PS: I call this interaction a carousel because I personally reserve the term slider for range inputs.

      100%. It's a carousel.

      Even most of the referenced "bad" articles call them carousels.
