Unnecessary Dialogs: Stopping the Proceedings with Idiocy September 13, 2006

Posted by Hank Wallace in Graphical User Interfaces.

Jeff Atwood writes about Unnecessary Dialogs and that there’s a lot of evidence that users never read dialogs.  I recall watching one of my children recently click the OK button on successive IE security warning dialogs without even reading them.  I agree with him.  Every time you present the user with an alert dialog, you have failed them.

He refers to Alan Cooper’s About Face 2.0 book which I haven’t read (yet).  Maybe it is time to read it?!
