List View Page


Wonder if this has been discussed before...In a web based application, for a
'list view' page, which from the below is the right approach?

1. Information to be shown within greyed out non-editable fields with black
color texts. When user clicks on edit button, the non-editable fields
through scripting is changed to editable form fields.


2. Show information as normal, bold labels and when user clicks on edit
button, the labels are converted to editable form fields.


Is there a better approach?

Thanks in advance,

left behind.

I am always very interested in projects that is applied to different media.

After all this time...

After all this time, Google still doesn't know what language(s) I speak (and
serves me Finnish and Swedish ocasionally just because I'm in these
countries). I tried many times to tell it that I only speak Romanian and
English, but I don't really feel like it's listening.
So no, I'm not worried about anything else they might 'know' about me.

What extensions would you like to see in a mobile browser?

The first extension for Mozilla's mobile browser "Fennec" has been
released. It's a URL Fixer, a handy tool that corrects typos in URLs
typed in the address bar... makes perfect sense for a mobile browser.

What extensions would you suggest to enhance the browsing experience on mobile?
