Make your next project a little bit more inclusive and usable by not removing or changing some default browser behaviour.
- Don’t Remove the Underlines on the Links
The goal of the link underline – besides that, it is a universal convention – is to give more visual differences besides just the colour. If we only use colour to convey meaningful information, we exclude our users with colour blindness (or, in some cases, low vision problems). You can remove the underline if it is self-evident that the element is a link like in a navigation section.
- Don’t Remove the Outline From Focusable Elements
The outline is mostly useful when we navigate with the keyboard, and the browsers respect this by default settings. If we click on a link using a mouse, we can’t see an outline, but using the tab key, we will.
- Don’t Remove Textarea Resize Functionality
If you have to remove, create an alternative solution like resize the field when the user hits enter. Remove just the horizontal axis and give the freedom to adjust the height.
- Don’t Open New Browser Windows
