[FEATURE] Change buttons to links

See original GitHub issue


I have experience with SEO and buttons are bad for

  • UX
  • Accessibility
  • SEO

If something is a link to another website it should be a real link, not a button.

Also, real links (without rel="nofollow") can really help Open Source projects. If someone will create a profile with links to his project’s official websites.

I’m not sure how much in this community are actual FOSS authors and maintainers.

I agree with jcubic here - buttons should be buttons, links should be links. We can style an a element however we want, but using a button isn’t semantic.
