Subject Re: [Proposal] Move busy indicator out of mobile swc and into spark swc
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2012 08:52:13 GMT

As usual, your proposals are clearly logical and make sense.


If anyone can think of a single reason why not, please speak now (and be
concise) or please consent by silence.


The Busy indicator is current bundled to be with the mobile SWC.  A lot of
end users like to have consistency across bot mobile and desktop
experiences.  The busy cursor is a brilliant feedback mechanism that tells
users "something is happening" rather than "I hit a button and I am not
sure what is happening".

Work required would be minimal in my estimation (see Justin's notes below).

It makes sense, serves the populace.
