UX stuff that bugs me today
Gregory Alan Bolcer stashed this in Usability!
Mozilla when it crashes asks me to quit or restart, but first it sends in the error for fixing--which results in an error.
Gmail when you click on the labels on the left hand side, instead of getting an archive button like any other search (all a label is, is a search with label:foo), you have to use the pulldown to find the archive function. Different ways of interacting for doing the exact same thing is a UX no-no.
Speaking of which, why do I have to only select 100 messages at a time or all 20,000+ of them? There is an 'unread' selection flag, but it won't select all of them, just the first 100.
Also, why isn't there a function to mark as read *and* archive. Also, why doesn't my iphone let me filter messages I don't want to see on my mobile before they get there?
Finally, my Xobni Smartr logs me out every single time. I wish they would make a way to auto-login every time I logged into Gmail.
And one last one, why doesn't every single build of the unix tar command include the z flag? Are there really unix distributions in this day and age that don't include that as the default?!!??
