Annoying Web Observation of the Week. Click to Enlarge.

Ok, this happens far too frequently for me: 

I'm shopping for stuff on the Web.  I click on a product.  The product has a picture.  Underneath the picture is text that says 'Click to Enlarge'.  I click on the text.  A new window opens.  It shows exactly the same picture!  Argh.

'nuff said.

    I’ve seen some sites where the "enlarged" pic is actually *smaller*. I feel your pain.

    To, me, the NEW WINDOW is far more annoying than the picture itself. If I do want a new window, I open it by myself!

    As Jakob Nielsen said: "Don’t pollute my desktop".
