Kufluk’s Usability Law I

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.
