Is it bad to keep a button that links to your website on your application? Do most people who use it see this as annoying?


I don't mind a link to the web site on a menu, for example under the Help menu. (eg. Help -> Website)

There are times when you want to:

  • Look up documentation
  • Check for an upgrade
  • Get help
  • Check system requirements
  • View tutorials
  • Refer the app to a friend

... and can't remember exactly what site the app came from, so some sort of link back to the site is nice.

You could put it as a button or link on the Help -> About dialog.
