I recently came across a post on a different kind of top 20 (or worse 20) list. This list is of bad software (or at least poorly behaving software). The focus of the article was on web applications but, too be honest, I think there are still some ‘regular’ applications that make these same mistakes as well.
I don’t want to reproduce the entire 20 items, you can go to the original article here and read those. I would like to point out that that author forgot some of my personal least favorites:
- 21. Desktop search that doesn’t pay attention to my bookmarks/favorites.
- 22. Blog software that puts you into the middle of the article (the site that this list originally shows up in is guilty of this one).
- 23. Software that installs wherever it wants to without asking the user
- 24. Fighting music formats
