Brent recently posted about the web’s influence on UI design. I’d e-mailed him about this a little while back after I was unable to locate some of NetNewsWire‘s functionality because it existed solely in the menus. I now expect all major functions and view options to be presented right in the UI, not only accessible via menus. I don’t think I’m alone in this either.
