Fisheye views represent a promising solution to the problem of visualizing and interacting with large amounts of data. Such lists often require tedious scrolling, which can be cumbersome for users. In a controlled experiment we compared performance and user preferences of a fisheye list and a traditional list with a scrollbar for selection and drag & drop tasks. Users performed significantly better using the fisheye list for drag & drop tasks, whereas no significant differences were found with regard to selection tasks. In terms of satisfaction, users generally preferred the fisheye list to the standard
list. A folder view with alphabetically grouped items served as a baseline condition and performed best overall.
