An Internet World Without Clicks?

Imagine an internet experience without clicks. Imagine opening Internet Explorer or Firefox simply by pointing your mouse to the browser icon, then placing your mouse on the address bar, begin typing to where you’re going. When you get to your destination, you merely navigate on the title and headings, do your usual browsing, pointing to all links and tabs without clicking your mouse! Impossible?!

Not anymore with this inventive, innovative concept from a website I StumbledUpon named dontclick.it- institute for interactive research. It is a work in progress but I believe once full blown, will make a huge impact into the future of internet browsing. I spent a good 15 minutes on this site trying to get the hang of browsing without clicking and then I keep coming back.

I LOVE the idea because I ‘suffer’ from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) being on the computer for long hours! (Well, mostly it’s bad posturing for me and not taking breaks but I still blame “clicking” too much as one of the causes!) The website is therapeutic for me. It is relaxing on the mind and on my index finger! It’s amazing how much clicking we do when we’re on the computer and how often we click on almost anything to get a result. It’s impossible to move about on our computers without clicking.

This idea is groundbreaking! The inventor hasn’t updated this site in a while but it still drives a lot of traffic and attention from all over. I can only wish the computer giants will pick up on the design. Spend some time on the page. Resist clicking! Believe, explore and discover the power of browsing without clicking! Oh, and the best thing about this website? It is absolutely commercial-free! No annoying pop-ads, banners or adsense from google. Puts my own blog to shame… sigh.©

  2. I actually never even thought that an Internet without clicking could exist. I mean, the mouse is definitely an extension of the body once the browser has loaded. It will be interesting how that project develops…

    BTW, I agree with your previous posts about googling “Filipina” or any other word that pertains to that. It is definitely a shame, but it’s great that more Filipinas are aggressively changing the search results. Seems like we all need some SEO lessons…

  3. Hi Kirbitz: I’ve added you on my ‘reciprocity corner’. i left a note on your mybloglog profile as well! thanks for the invite.

    Hey Anne! Thanks a lot for stopping by and leaving a note. Helps to know I’m not the only one reading my posts. lol. I had fun exploring the dontclick.it site, glad you checked it out. Yes, I hope that more and more Filipinas will stand proud of their heritage online- so decent articles will be on top of any search engines. Hope you’ll come back for more dose of ‘sinigang’. Check out some of the ‘leftovers’ as well when you get the chance! Salamat…

Sinigang For the Soul

This is both a mixed bag and a personal blog, not a food blog; although I may talk about food sometimes! :-) I am a Filipina Expat living in the United States. The pages here are random musings of love and hate, rants and raves and anything in between. Sinigang is a metaphor to signify all my favorites in life; all that interests me (or not!).

The rotating header shows original images of the Philippine Islands then and now; "bringing back memories of scenic greens, warm sun, blue waters, great friends and the solace of home..."
