6. Web browsers
Web browsers are a critical piece of business software and, because so many tools are web-based, we have to use browsers constantly. So when they are broken by poor design, work inevitably becomes a hassle. The problem with web browsers is that the developers are so busy trying to attract users with new features, they forget to fix the features that are broken. It's been a problem since the 1990s, and it seems some things will never change.
Outlook is the standard by which most corporations and companies judge their email. Yet it's a standard full of broken features when it runs with Exchange Server. Although there are Exchange experts who can certainly set up it up to run well, they are few and far between. And when Exchange is set up poorly, Outlook has serious problems. Every day, I come across organisations where Outlook can't connect to Exchange Server, as set up by their internal IT.
8. Predictive typing
Regardless of mobile platform, predictive typing tends to cause more mistakes than it prevents. There is even a site dedicated to funny predictive typing errors. Until this smartphone feature is fixed, I'll keep it disabled. Tanks yule verily mulch.
