New window?

Post by Sybren » Fri Oct 29, 2004 2:37

Congrats on your new site! Looks nice, better interface. But pretty please with sugar on top, drop the target="_blank" from the forum link. It's part of your website, so it should open in the same window. If I want it to open in another window, I'll press another button.

I've done quite some usability studies, and it's rather well-known (in usability-study circles that is) that opening new windows usually only annoys people. Besides that, there is menu option "open in same window" in most browsers, but there is "open in new window". So give the visitor a choice and just use regular links.

i agree. this is an awsome site. i always used your installers and was sad to see you were getting booted from sf. Im glad to see you got some new hosting. It would have been a shame for you guys to stop making installers. Your installers are one of the reasons i almost never use windows. I would like to thank you for all the great work you guys have done.
