Which one do you use?
Which one feels more casual? (Am not a native speaker :)
I personally like log in/out, but I wouldn't really notice if something said "sign in" instead.
Recently I've been tending more towards using the verb "sign" rather than "log". In the real world (in RL) people tend to sign in and out -- to log in, by comparison, is a very computer-related term. I'm all for computer-related terms, but I imagine "sign" being the more recognisable of these two.
Sign In: 1.5 bil
Log In: 500 mil
The crowd has spoken ;)
Google uses Sign In/Sign Out
Tough pick. I prefer Log In/Log Out though :)
What about sign up or register?
Don't forget there's also on / off: sign on / off vs. log on / off
Thanks for the feedback guys, Sign In/Sign Out it is :)
I'd go for Sign In/Sign Out. On a side note, my D-LINK router seems to think "Login In" is appropriate.
I tend to use Sign In/Sign Out. To me (for some odd reason) it seems more professional to use...
Signin and Signout . Because that gives consistency as we have Signup as well, but nothing like Logup ;)
I use Sign in / Sign out. It just looks nicer.
I personally like "log in" and "log out", but either version works.
Just don't use "login" when you mean "log in".
I think it largely depends on the target market. I'd prefer to use log in/out for a younger, more web-savvy group. Since sign in/out comes from a reference from the offline world, it's more likely that the older, less web-savvy group would be familiar with it, thus lowering the barrier to entry.
