I believe most people are right handed, and mouse with the right hand.
As a systems analyst putting the user buttons most used closest to the
scroll bar is not 'old school bitching' but common sense.
I use the forward / back arrows instead of the keyboard shortcuts because
usually, I am mousing across the web. The keyboard is unused.
Forcing the user to mouse from the scroll bar to the the upper left corner
to access previous sites is a waste of precious time and, causes more
wrist/mouse action. Carpal tunnel syndrome comes to mind.
Its 2009. Everything in your browser should be customizable. I want my
links to drop down in the center of the screen or more to the right side, not
on the left side.
Again, more useless mousing for navigation. Its common sense.
