    The main thing to communicate trust is to allow the user to foresee what is going to happen.

    Not always. When an interface element gets used 100x per day, usability doesn't always equal "predicatability", hence "learnable". It's more about having the features there, so you can get away with imperfect predictability.

    Inifinite scroll can cause huge usability issues where you can't link to a specific portions of it. You can't bookmark a section. You can't always easily scroll to that portion either. You also won't be looking at the same thing as someone else. Etc.

    I talk from experience

    ... alllllrighty then.

      The stats on hamburger menus are pretty clear about it being low on learnsbility. Still a useful pattern to hide overstuffed features and taxonomy though.

        Recognisability yes, learnability is different.

          Learnability is easy to measure in a usability test — have the user repeat a task after a modest break and distraction. Hamburgers don’t improve this from the stats presented.

          But like I said we have to establish hierarchy somehow. Hamburgers help w that.
