Earlier tonight, I was working on a great blog post – a collection of links that I've discovered in the past few weeks that I wanted to show to all of you. I wanted to round the number off at an even 10 just to make it a ‘Top 10'.
Mwen te ale nan makè sove mwen yo epi mwen te ekri kèk ti deklarasyon éspirituèl pou chak moun ki ta kenbe atansyon ou epi fè ou riz. Apre mwen fin ranpli chak lyen, mwen ta louvri yon nouvo tab (mwen itilize Firefox), ale nan Bookmarks mwen, epi louvri lyen an. Ou ta ka deja konnen sa ki te pase apre. Mwen klike sou makè mwen epi mwen louvri nouvo sit la dwa nan tab kote pòs mwen an te fini 90%.
NOOOOooooooooooooo! I clicked STOP. I clicked BACK. I clicked UNDO. It's gone.
Sa a te nan pòs. Sa a te pòs la ki te pral fè m 'yon etwal blog. Pòs la ki te pral sele kontra liv mwen an. Pòs la ki te pral gen dè milye de Trackbacks, fè tèt la nan Digg, and put me in the Technorati Top 100. But it's gone.
So here it is… the one browser feature that would consume the entire market. The form-on-the-fly-save-and-undo-the-stupid-click-that-I-just-did-that-I-did-not-mean-to-click. I don't have a catchy name, I wasted all my wit earlier on my brilliant set of links. I don't understand why computers can't do this, though. If your keyboard is an input device, and the letters can appear on the screen, then why (OH WHY!!!) can't the computer remember what you just wrote in a text area 1.8 seconds prior to accidentally changing the page.
So there you go Mozilla, Microsoft, Opera… that's the feature that I will forever love you for. Please, please put it in your next release. Please.
