Will mouse clicks go the way of the dinosaurs?

1If this site has its way - then in the future we may no longer have to perform mouse clicks. The dont click it site promotes a no-click mouse input interface as a much more efficient and ergonomic way to give input to a computer.

Instead of mouse clicks - one uses the hover time or mouse gestures to determine if an object has been selected or "clicked".

Having tried the site - I found it hard to stop clicking on links and buttons out of force of habit. But I am sure such an interface would definitely keep my thumbs going strong for many more years.


2 A statistic from the Dont Click It site. It is interesting to see how many of us have become hard-wired to use mouse-clicks even on a site that requires no mouse clicks.
