Hi all,

Have you heard about this?

Eyetracking visualizations show that users often read Web pages in an F-shaped pattern: two horizontal stripes followed by a vertical stripe.

Does this change how we write/make/design websites? As far as I can tell, it should not. But I'd like to hear some opinions and anlyses.
