Abstract
Considers whether graphic user interfaces (GUI) are based on interface design principles that will enhance online searching in the long term. Traces GUI origins. Examines the design considerations underlying them. A good GUI design should empower users, communicate visuelly and encourage interaction. Using these design criteria, examines 2 newly released GUI: Data Times EyeQ 1.22 and Dow Jones N/R 5.0. Highlights some of the problems with their use and the trade-offs that are necessary in using GUIs
