This is a remarkably parochial and unprofessional view. Would you, as a usability professional, examine your own needs, conclude that a feature does not fit those needs, and then declare that there is "no justification" for that feature?

You have actual real users (of this list) in front of you giving actual real reasons this feature is useful to us.

"carpet" of bookmarks and sessions ("inside" tabs and windows)

This may be purely linguistical, but what are exactly sessions? This is one
of the features in which Opera was unique. Each session is a group of web
pages, it can be auto-saved (useful after a crash and for consistency of
information) or it can be saved by users. But looking at it, why is a
session different from a group of webpages inside a "carpet" of the
bookmarks library? Isn't that redundant?

Firefox has a feature that (as of this writting) isn't implemented in Opera:
save all open webpages (the tabs in a window). Isn't this basically the same
as saving a session?

Any thoughts on promo codes in an ecommerce experience?

I'm curious if anybody has some thoughts on the addition to promo
codes to ecommerce pages of a site. Our client will have a lot of
email and direct mail campaigns that lead users to input promo codes
to get specific localized savings. We want to make it easy for these
users to access and include the codes for savings.

One thought is if we make the promo code entry global and overly
pervasive, users without promo codes may feel left out and defer their
purchase until they can find one?

Do you actually possess "design" skills


I've recently encountered many Interaction Designers who call themselves "designers" yet have no drawing, photographic, layout or any artistic skills whatsoever. How is this even possible? Maybe the term "organizer" or " choreographer" should be more appropriate?

re: chart/table design reference

Like in other post, Show me the number by Stephen Few is ok - little more practical and easier to read than Tufte's books. But very few examples and tips for integrating it with an interactive applicatons.....Another good resource is "chart/table" section in SAP's design guild website.

good luck.
