OK, so we know the back button is one of the most used 'links'.
I am working on a somewhat interactive site and to go back several steps (am trying to do this without using cookies) to a personalized results page is important.
Do people really use that drop down menu, or are they tired of it since a lot of DB driven sites just do not make use of the title tag and you will never find where you want to go back to? Or did users never really find out about it?
do we know of any statistics?
would it be better to just put a dynamic link on the page (cookie driven) to get them to that results page?
I noticed that and also the text is sooo big. I'm one of those seniors they talk about in terms of usability. I'm not nuts about teeny text but reading his pages reminded me of when you pick of one of those books in the dr's office with really huge print for people with major sight problems. It's too big to read comfortably.
So he may be the big usability guru but there are a few things he writes that I'm not so sure about. Good to read it though and think about all his points.
