Non Standard UI features

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:00 am by Toby

After a couple of days of using firefox, I have switched it to my default browser. MYIE2 will remain as a backup moving forward, but I’ll see how I get on with firefox for a while.

However one this I have noticed about it already. The developers seem to have decided that OK buttons to close dialogs are superflous. OK buttons, or even Done if you wish are a very fundamental part of the Windows UI experience. Not all users are aware of the fact that you can click the X in the right top to close a window.

This is the download dialog in firefox. We are being asked if we wish to clean up.

So we do, but now what.

A ‘Done’ button here beside the cleanup button wouldn’t go amiss.

Joel has a lot to say about trying to change Standardised UI.
