Nuclear launch website slammed for More-than-three-clicks-interface

“The website interface to the nuclear arsenal of the USA is to be completely re-written from scratch following an assessment by usability guru Jakob Nielse

“The website interface to the nuclear arsenal of the USA is to be completely re-written from scratch following an assessment by usability guru Jakob Nielsen last week. …by far the worst crime committed by the designers is, says Nielsen, ‘the fact that it currently takes seven clicks to launch an all-out nuclear attack on an enemy nation. I mean, who the hell designed this thing anyway? An infinite number of monkeys? Have they never heard of the Three Click Rule? I honestly thought I’d put an end to this kind of idiocy when I published Designing Website Usability, but apparently I needn’t have bothered.'”
