Why do you think you need that? Do you seriously believe the user is too
stupid to use the same "File/Print" menu item that works the same way on
every web page he or she visits?
No. But I myself for example, I use full screen and have dissabled many of
the buttons including print. ctrl+p is the way I call it myself, but not
everyone knows their keyboard shortcuts either. I consider it a sort of
added value, no matter how little.
Do you think the user is patient enough to try to figure out what icon you
use and where you've placed your on-page print link, when the standard
item is the same place it's always been, and works just as well as it
Because my page is to wide to be printed on a standard A4, hence the CSS
tweak, resizing is not an option! 700 pages and the print icon is very
visible and always on the exact same spot. Who are you to judge it's
excessive and that it can't be used alongside the standard menu button? A
minimalistic approach is not what I'm looking for.
btw, your 'select a style' feature on camelbones doesn't work
crossbrowser... now that's something the users don't need!
All a matter of what you want and how you want it.
