I’ve been testing the new Google
Groups Beta and design-wise it looks a little bit cleaner however one
SERIOUS flaw is that I can’t seem to get paging to work at all. Pressing
Page Up or Page Down results in no response.
Okay, rtfm… Piles
and piles of pages of useless docs on how to create and add content. But
how about people who need to BROWSE content? No documentation whatsoever
if Google Groups Beta uses some sort of special hotkeys for navigation. And
no, I’m not going to experiment/read the JS source/use intuition to guess
what they are. This is something I consider BASIC for any type of news
And yes, I’ve already sent the folks at Google an email about it. However,
frankly I’m a bit disappointed at the Google Overlords for missing such a
brain-dead simple feature (or the failure to document it). How many
advanced algorithms and UI pains did you guys go through just to forget
the lowly Page Down key?
