I have so many users who accidently, repeatedly, click on the Hyper-linked Company (blue, underlined) column thinking they're going to go to the Contact record, and get taken to the company record where they didn't want to go. They get confused, and it then takes a bunch of clicks to get back to the contact record that they wanted to go to in the first place.
If anyone has a suggestion, please share it - and I would like to see something done to prevent this, but I don't have a solution. I almost wish the company column wasn't hyperlinked in the Contact List View. And removing the Company column is not an option, specially when there are multiple contacts with the same name.
