    Could you give up mouse clicking?
    This site is listed as a flash site of the day and thought it was a bit unique. Even if you don't like flash, this site's concept brings many questions to mind about what sites could be like in the near future.

    Crap...I can't get in either. I swear it wasn't a dream. Maybe they are just working on it or something.
    Anyway, here is a description of it

    For those of you who are tired of having to click the mouse button to get from one place to another, this experimental Flash site is for you. At www.dontclick.it, you will only have to click your mouse button ONCE, at the intro to the site. After your first click, the entire site navigation is achieved using rollovers. Just point your cursor where you want it to go, and . . . well, you'll figure it out quickly enough. The only question that remains is whether you can resist the urge to click!

    We need the explicit gesture the click provides. Relying on rollover alone makes it too easy to accidentally "select" something on your way to something else.

    I agree. All-rollovers may be fine for a concept site, or one where being "cutting edge" is the only point (rather than one actually trying to accomplish anything else), but I wouldn't want it on a regular site. Kind of like how some of the more strange concept cars are: Fun to look at, but not to actually have to drive on any regular basis.

    The site is up again now. Its not a bad concept, but its a huge amount of code for what is really just something with novelty value only. Well worth a look though.

    Good one westgroup!

    I'm getting deep into some broadband design concepts and I would say folks should get real familiar with mouseover browsing like this.

    When broadband offers information choices rapid-fire can your sluggish mouse clicks keep up??

    I can't give up clicking. Clicking is a "sharper" way to navigate a site. Rollover is even annoying at some level.

    Something I would like see is if I can navigate a site with my eyes only. And/or talk to links open and will our forms by voice.

    Interesting site- but I have to agree with Richard's point- I want to take an action.

    It bugged me to have the whole top of the site shift when I rolled over- I like control darnit!
