I’ve been as guilty as the next person for using tags as buttons in the past and it’s something that from today onwards, won’t happen again.
You might wonder why this sudden realisation has occurred now. It should have occurred a long time ago, but today I logged into Nest, the workplace pension provider’s “My Account” area.
This tweet followed shortly after:
Hey @nestpensions. I'd really like it if I didn't have to open IE in a virtual machine to read my messages in your system. Piss poor.
You have my word.
Update: This still annoys me two years later so I made 'Button Pal' to give folks some easy to copy-and-paste styles.
