I have had a word about backwards technologies before so here’s something else that doesn’t need to be here:
Wrong. It’s bollocks.
The last thing I want is for my computer to decide anything this banal for me. If I wanted to go to the next page.. I’d just click next. I don’t want to get to the bottom article and then be forced into loading the next five, it’s a pain in the arse.
Not only that, if you disappear off from a site to follow a link, then click ‘back’.. there’s no mechanism to put you back at the same position in the list! So you just load up the same page right at the top and have to scroll all the way through everything you have already consumed.
Annoying, pointless nonsense that only aides lazy fucking web designers and advertisers.
Why do we want computers to make decisions like this for us? Should my ABS decide when I’m in need of some assisted breaking and deploy my airbag when required? Yes. That’s a good use of a computer aided decision.
Clicking next on a webpage? Do one.
