Form design wishes for 2008 …
How is it possible in 2007 to find such ill conceived forms on the web ???
If like me, you are a keyboard addict to navigate beetween fields in a form, you should have noted that most of the forms available on the web don’t have consistent tab order and validation. I mean forms where you can move beetween input fields using tab/shift tab and validate by pressingthe Enter key.
This is the basics of form navigation and ensures the user a consistent experience on your site. So please, drop those silly pseudo web 2 features which are clogging your budget (are you really sure of the usefulness of RSS feeds on your site ? at least the way you’re implementing it …) and get back to the basics, ie user experience and speed. You will find that the benefits will be much more substantial for your users and for your business !
