I was inclined to dismiss this author's view on mobile design since they were saying "click" this and "click" that everywhere. On mobile, there is no clicking. Clicking is for when you have a mouse. On mobile there's tapping.

But. That being said, the article makes sense. Hamburger menus are where features go to die.

So if you want a feature used, I agree it should be brought forward in a different way.

I definitely struggle with that wording issue, since there are a variety of devices and interaction methods that make it difficult to write about without the language getting cumbersome. :) "Click" seems to be the most commonly-accepted term for initiating a request for the browser to load a URI based on a hyperlink, so I went with that as a general term.
