First Law: “You must always be able to get back where you’ve just been.”
“Again, again!” the Teletubbies shout. Adults are incredulous, and so I suspect would be a usability expert. But that’s what the kids want. And frankly, that what I want from a website. I don’t care that it was just a bloody welcome screen or homepage – I’ve probably skipped over it, and I’m now wondering if there was something I missed.
I don’t want to use the browser controls. Give me a “back” and a “home” link. Always. Make ’em obvious.
