Probably because you know how a web page is supposed to be navigated. I 
say this as a person working with computers for a couple decades and 
discovering, because of a user, that USB cables *can* fit perfectly into 
a network jack and short the pins thus driving a switch a little bonkers 
in the closet. Never would have occurred to me that they are just the 
right size for doing that.
