A usability tip

In past decades World-Wide-Web has evolved from simple navigational websites to more process based portals. As websites getting richer day by day we should use standards to maintain ease of access.

A tip in this regard may be that text links are good for navigational purposes but whenever an action is going to be performed based on user click a Button should be placed ( not necessarily a HTML button but it can be a link that look likes a button).

For example on a job portal a user finds a text link saying “Apply for this job”. Upon clicking this link a user expects to be navigated to a page where he or she can complete the process of applying for the job. The user will be surprised if he finds that clicking the link has caused him to actually apply for the job. This use experience can be changed a lot by just changing the text link into a button.

Most of us are using these type of techniques but we can still find people ignoring these things and making WWW not a better place to live. what’s your say.
