Monday's lunchtime links

Written by Adrian Holovaty on August 19, 2002

Netscape 4.8 is out -- No, this isn't a joke. Yes, Netscape 6 and Netscape 7 have been available for a while now. Why someone would want to download a slightly different version of a bug-laden browser, I will never know. (Link seen on Zeldman and Webmaster World)

Jakob Nielsen: Let Users Control Font Size -- "Tiny text tyrannizes users by dramatically reducing task throughput." This is old news, but it's good to see everybody's favorite (or least favorite) usability expert chip in his two cents.

New York Times: Wired Students Prefer Campus News on Paper (name: cyberpunk21, password: cyberpunk21) -- "Even though college campuses are some of the most wired places on Earth, printed versions of college newspapers remain far more popular than their online editions." This is old news for recent college journalists like me. It's also a pity. Many college newspaper Web sites offer more features and are better designed than most professional news sites. I'll discuss one in tonight's site review.
