Re: when less is more in web design
Ah, don't get me started on web 2.0. It's just a marketing fad and doesn't really exist in my books, we're just using the same old technologies in different ways. Nor is it really anything to do with whitespace!
To be honest I haven't really seen the trend you're describing - most websites that are revamped tend to have nicer graphics and sometimes a cleaner layout. But I definitely haven't seen a big push recently (or at any time) to get more and more whitespace into a page. Have you got any examples?
