This has kind of been tried before, but not quite.

I suggest that the Stack Exchange link in the global inbox (AKA MultiCollider) be shoved to the right. I've mis-clicked like 30 times and have ended up on stackexchange.com many times. Something similar will do fine.

Take a look at my mockup. It's worth more than a thousand words.

    umm have you seen the pic? the link is to the right.. your mouse wont be there by default. – andrewk Jan 22 '11 at 21:18
  • I have absolutely no problem with the current layout. What do you keep clicking on? – jrtc27 Dec 23 '12 at 16:21
