Should "Delete" buttons or other critical buttons be marked with more emphasis or should actually go unnoticeable?
For instance which of these is the best practice when making a "Delete" or perhaps "Cancel Booking" button (which will delete all data):
- Make it same as other buttons but use a "red" background
- De-emphasize it and make it just a normal link
- De-emphasize it and make it just a normal link but also color it "red" (it's not so emphasized but making it red makes it look like it's still a 'critical' action)
This is considering that any of these buttons will still have a "confirmation" alert box asking to "double" confirm the user's action.
Just wondering what will be better on the surface.
