“The Curious Case of “Are you sure?” – the Usecrime That Just Won’t Die”
I’m as guilty as others of overusing confirmation dialogues but, in my defense, I’ve actually never even been asked to try to implement undo in any of the front end interfaces I’ve worked on.
The curious thing about this case (and other usecrimes) is that I keep hearing about UX designers running into programmers who are hesitant to implement features necessary for good UX.
And I keep hearing from programmers who are never asked to implement these things.
This leads me to think that something’s being unevenly distributed here.
