  • A “Top” link at the bottom of pages that have enough transactions to
    run the bottom of the ticket off the screen. As people use different
    resolutions this might be something that appears regardless of how many
    transactions appear or set to appear for a static number of transactions.

I’ve never really understood “Top” links.

Are there people whose keyboards don’t have “Home” keys?

I’ve never understood why people need to make snide remarks when they
don’t need to. Is your brain missing a “This contributes nothing
useful” key?

The question was perfectly serious, Mathew; no particular need to get
pissy about it.

Then the answer is that your hand may not be on the keyboard. It’s
often nicer to use the mouse scroll wheel to move around in a
long page and clicking a link is a natural operation.

Many users do not use their keyboard for page navigation. A “Top”
link provides a mouse friendly alternative that is clearly associated
with the viewed page.

My experience with Top links is that they end up in the navigation
stack, and are therefore confusing, WRT, oh, using the scroll bar (if
one does not wish to move one’s hand to the keyboard.

Have I been poorly served by my browsers?

I was thinking that Top links suck, but then I realised the browser in my hand (blackberry) doesn’t have a home key…

The issue with using the scrollbar is the reason I suggested the "Top"
link in the first place. Oftentimes here at work we get tickets that
end up long enough to reduce the scroll bar to a mere quarter of an
inch. Considering I have my resolution set to 1280x1024 you can imagine
how long these things get.

Perhaps you’re poorly served by your browser. My laptop is native at
1400x1050, and I almost never get a scrollbar thumb too short for me to
grab reliably, but that’s in Firefox, which probably purposefully
limits how short the thumb can be.

So, clearly, confusing Back-page-lists not withstanding, there’s a call
for it.
