Okay, I have just visited the umpteenth site that is suddenly using the lightbox effect for something. Can we get past that now?
Yeah, it was kind of cool a year ago. But you know what? It actually takes longer for me to log in or download or submit (or whatever I want to do) because I have to wait for your lightbox to load.
And on an older computer, it takes even longer. So unless you’re trying to convince me to upgrade my machine (which won’t happen), a simple login form will do.
Remember: If it’s not important, don’t use it. I don’t need a lightbox just to log in. You’re putting too much lipstick on your pig.
