Google Web Accelerator: An Alert for Web App Designers

37 Signals says:

Google is essentially clicking every link on the page -- including links like "delete this" or "cancel that." And to make matters worse, Google ignores the Javascript confirmations.

We discovered this yesterday when a few people were reporting that their Backpack pages were "disappearing." We were stumped until we dug a little deeper and discovered this Web Accelerator behavior.
