GUI usability: There is no clean way to go back



  • 1. Apply something (i.e. firewall rules)
    2. Open something for editing, because you want to verify the entries.
    3. Press back and you are outside. You get a blank page with "Document Expired"

    Now what to do?
    1. Press F5 and reapply and hope nothing destructive will happen.
    2. Repair the URL and click 5 times to go where you were last.

    1. I like to have a title bar with links in it for going back.
    2. Never make it possible to resend input on back button.
