Clickless Navigation

This site is... interesting. A friend at work told me about it (apparently it was a DIGG link).

Give it a try.

It's actually a bit strange at first but you really find it rather intuitive after a while, especially if you use a pen tablet to work with when browsing.

Okay ... I guess ...

I don't know about other people, but I know that I don't actually take my hands off the keyboard too much while I browse. The 'find while I type' feature of Firefox and the ability to just hit enter allows me to get to any link and just hit the enter key to go there. If you are on a tablet, I suppose it would be nice to keep from double tapping, but if you actually have access to a keyboard and a mouse, the click just isn't that much work!

What is this feature of which you speak?

I've not heard of it before. Could you tell me how to use it? Does it need an extension?

(BTW I know html doesn't work in this forum but you can render the code mentally ;-))

How to do a no-click Firefox

In reply to: What is this feature of which you speak?

All you have to do is go to Firefox Preferences > Advanced > General and make sure both 'Allow text to be selected with the keyboard' and 'Begin finding when you begin typing' are checked. If you need help, let me know!

They talked about this site not too long ago on BOL.

They talked about it not long ago, soon after the started talking about the no button mouse.

Maybe I don't quite understand...

...but it seems to be just a rollover-rollout invisible button function in a Flash swf. It is impressive, but doesn't seem that revolutionary. I think it's fine for those with good motor-mouse skills. Again, maybe I don't quite get it.
