I've got a situation where there's a list, and each item in the list contains a detail page. Lets say it's a list of users in a table or something, and clicking on a user brings you to a page with that user's details on it.
Here's a mockup of the detail page:
So you've got a form with "Save" and "Cancel" buttons, as well as a link to take the users back to the list of users.
My question: Is the "<-- back" link necessary here? On one hand, it does effectively the same thing as both the "cancel" button (and the browser's back button). On the other hand, it provides a clear way for the user to return to the previous page. Thoughts?
