Usability Guideline 7:1


Do not create or direct users into pages that have no navigational options. No links out of these pages found.


Many web pages contain links that open new browser windows. When these browser windows open, the Back button is disabled, and if the new window opens full-screen, users may not realize that a new window has appeared, and become frustrated because they cannot press Back. Popup windows should contain a prominent control that closes the window.
