When Good Interfaces Go Crufty An Anonymous Reader Writes A

When Good Interfaces Go Crufty. An anonymous reader writes “A good article over at mpt on why good interfaces go crufty.” A nice read before or after a visit to the Interface Hall of Shame. [Slashdot]
Examples of Interface Cruft:

  • Saving is outdated, we shouldn’t have to remeber to save what so ever. (mabye label versioning?)
  • Mac’s Quit cruft (IE has this right)
  • File Selection Dialog seperate from the file manager
  • Tracking file references by unique id instead of name/path
  • file path dependancies for program installations
  • Right Click dragging issues in windows
