I'd observe that the kernel of the issue is that simply these are two semantically different icons, namely Grab handle is a symbol that replicates has friction area for a thumb or finger Hamburger Menu is a symbol that represents a list of menu items these two icons have accidentally fallen upon the same symbol. The fact that they look the same is ...

Here's a study on the conversion rate with hamburger menues: http://conversionxl.com/testing-hamburger-icon-revenue/ I think luke wroblewski stated the same result once ago.

I think that a flat 'earth' or 'planet' icon with an arrow would do the trick. People envision the internet as a world of data and knowledge, so this would easily tell them that this is indeed related to the internet.

Clouds are becoming quite prevalent for "save this online". You could incorporate that into your design by showing a similar icon flashing blue while it is saving, then a green check that fades away when the save is complete. Or show an animated "..." inside the cloud, and then show a check when the save is complete.

I wouldn't add icons and changing the color of a link to match the normal text is a bad idea as well. Maybe you could simply add footnotes at the bottom? Something like this... http://codepen.io/run-time/pen/XJXGgB

Making just the icons clickable will less convenient to use. I would recommend against using the icons, blue underlined text is a clear identification of a hyperlink. Icons will just look unnecessary elements However, with little CSS or JS coding you can add the link image to see how it looks.

No, because if you do that, then you will have lots of icons on the page and it may cause a detrimental amount of visual clutter on the screen. I seriously don't find any problem with the attached CV. However you can play with readability, try use zebra pattern style (aka swim-lanes) on the table and add space around the content.

First of all This is in fact a switch. In essence, the user will choose from on of two positions, changing to alter behavior of some other element - a switch. In this case, the swtich has two "labels", manifested as icons. One of the positions will be in color (selected or unselected, is OP's question), and the other will be in grey. Grey color in UI ...

Version 2 looks to me more like a grid selection to me. But I am not your user (most of the UX community here probably is not either). I am also well aware of select/deselect and grid/list views because I design this sort of thing all the time. Your users may not. So let's dig deeper... Don't mix metaphors Showing something is selected with an active ...

This will probably make more sense when you see it with the rest of your site, but right now the gray makes me think it's disabled. Below makes more sense to me. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

For some reason I can't add the followings as comment due to my low reputation :( Anyway; I always tend to keep the darker tones of same colour for its active state, same for hover; however it may vary from one design to another due to its overall colour scheme... The light grey/silverish colour of that icons only states that an icon exists, obliviously ...

As "checked" is technically one of the 2-part positive "approved" states (checked and executed), I would recommend the following to suggest this: I would also strongly advise taking onboard the point about changing the terminology to "reviewed" - it is a more specific description of the action taken (anyone upvoting this should also upvote the original ...

I would say using the word "checked" is complicating things as the associated icon needs to be the same as "executed", which is confusing for the users. I would suggest changing "checked" to "reviewed" as it implies the same thing. Change the icon to something such as the one below and leave the green and the larger check mark to the final stage of the ...

First of all, items that are being downloaded now should not be clickable/available for launch/viewing. This temporal unavailability should be signified by item's content (title, caption, image etc) and background greyed-out and the cursor that doesn't change when hovering this item. Second, there should be a progress bar displayed. This is how Adobe is ...

Apple uses the gear for 'Actions'. For preferences Apple uses an image of several gears (instead of just one).

As no one has suggested ownCloud so far: It is a similar to solution as dropbox and google drive, except that it can run on a system owned by your company. Like dropbox or google drive it has Limited version control/deletion reversal Supports searching of files Images have thumbnail previews and videos can be viewed within the web UI Has a desktop client ...

The most obvious compromise is a left aligned list without icons. I'm not sure what the point of the icons is, other than to make the menu busy and confusing. Is there ever a state (tablets?) where the icons will be the only thing displayed? For all the reasons listed already, left aligned will be easier to read/scan.

I see following reasons; Less details in flat design in contrast to glossy icons enables user to consume and memorize information easily. Easy to make flat design for professionals too ( less details) Major corp like google and microsoft adopted flat ui. Most of the people are now aware of computers and don't need skeuomorphism tricks.

My first idea is a dice, as in "roll a dice". However this metaphor is culture-specific and may be inappropriate in some other cultures. Another way to recast this question is to forget about the "random" aspect of the feature; instead, tell your user that it is an "automatic, non-deterministic positioning tool", where its complete randomness is merely an ...

If space is really a big issue and you need to use an icon I'd go with the shuffle icon which is pretty universal to mean turn off/on randomise rather than as you say, reorder. However if you can get the text in there I'd strongly suggest doing that as you may be making users think a bit too much to figure out what each icon means.
