Stalked by a Button

Recently I was working on some articles within Eclipse using the fantastic Webtools, and everywhere I turned… everywhere I looked… every perspective I changed… it followed me.

Webtools contains the most important button in the world:

There’s some information in the UI Best Practice guidelines about assuming more importance than everyone else. It’s a common pitfall that developers (including me) and especially new developers fall into.

Are there any other buttons/contributions stalking people within Eclipse?

    Chris, now that mention it, there is something.

    Whenever I move to the Plug-in development perspective, the error log view appears.

    This view is not very useful when being in the dev environment, it’s way better when it’s showing in the client.

    So ok it’s not a button, but I think it qualifies. What do you think ?

    I already reported it long ago:

    Reporting bugs is very frustrating…

    I got a profile this button when I installed the TPTP profiling feature… unfortunately, the button didn’t go away even after I uninstalled TPTP, I had to remove it manually using the customize perspective command.
