double-click deterrent

You know how annoying people are when they double-click on links on the Internet?

Here’s the cure – an alert on every link on your site which pops up when someone double-clicks. Needs jQuery.

      alert('WHAT THE HELL????\n\nNo double-clicking on the Internet!');


  1. I’m with you 100% on the concept… but I would tend to favour a slightly softer message. šŸ˜‰

    alert(‘Every time you double-click a link on the Interwebs a baby kitten loses a whisker.’);

    nah that wouldn’t likely go down so well either… šŸ™

  2. hah! good idea! it’s going on my blog…. just as soon as I write one that doesn’t need jQuery…. if I can!

  3. I followed some link to a blog post with funny comments from Ryanair. Browsing the comments I suddenly see your name. I guess not only the world, but also the interwebs is a small place.

  4. it’s all those pipes – cramped šŸ˜‰

    nice to see you again! knew who you were as soon as I saw the comment appear.

    I haven’t juggled in a while, but have encouraged a few locals and they’re getting pretty good.
