Is the browsers back button our report card showing an F (most cases)?

To put it simply (and a bit overly simplified), if a user clicks on the browsers back button I think the website navigation has suffered a catastrophic failure (in most cases). Why? Apart from user preference/habit (most cases) the user was forced to end their engagement with the website and engage the browser. Is the browsers back button our report card showing an F (most cases)?

Forms: One vs Two Email fields

> I have been trying to track down research discussing the use of two vs one
> field for entering an email address on an online form.

I could be wrong about this, but I think the duplicate email field method is
something developers started using to cut down on invalid registrations as a
result of typos. It seems the theory is that by using two fields, the user
has to enter it twice and validation code can be used to make sure they
match, thereby decreasing the chances the entered address is incorrect.

that men are better designers than women?

Pogo-stick navigation


Can anyone point me to research done on the effectiveness or non-effectiveness of the "pogo-stick" model of navigation, that is, navigation that forces users to return to a central page to find all possible choices.

I do have UIE's white paper,Are the Product Lists on Your Site Reducing Sales? which addresses the issues of pogo-stick navigation with regards to online sales. I'm looking for additional research and would appreciate any references of which you might be aware.

Best Regards,
Jim Griesemer
