Web Annoyance – Disabling Right Click

Here’s a message to those websites who think they are disabling right-clicking to prevent someone from stealing your photos. You are not preventing anything, but you are hurting usability for those of us who may want to open a link in a new tab or a new window. I know I could just middle-click, but I choose to right-click and use the menu.

This may be hard for you to understand, but your images and page get transferred from your server to my computer. If I really wanted to get them, I could. Please get rid of the stupid message. That’s almost as bad as the big sites who use flash to prevent you from stealing images.
