So, I noticed a lot of blogs are utilizing CSS that lowers the opacity of items unless the mouse is hovering over them.
This ticks me off, because I never put the mouse over text I'm trying to read.
Why, you ask? Because I'm actually trying to read it, and the mouse would be in the way.
Why do people do this? It's a little annoying.
It feels awkward to have to put the mouse over the stuff I'm trying to read and have to try and make sure it's not blocking my view at the same time.
I would much prefer it if everything was visible at all times.
Another thing is if I want to see everything on the page, I actually have to mouse over it! That's an unneeded hassle that I shouldn't have to deal with.
And don't respond with, "then don't visit those blogs." I actually visit the blogs for the content, so something like this isn't going to make me stop.
(Yay! A poll!)
