Some options to consider: Offer up a 'sneak preview'. Let people see the new version long before it's forced upon them. Listen to feedback as much as you can. Amazon does this prior to their redesigns. Launch the new version but don't force it upon them immediately. Let people opt in/out of the new design for a period of time. Google's web apps often do ...

You can keep hidden the two input controls, and show them only when the user taps one of the extremes: User should be able to drag extremes, which may also contain the current values.

I think with this many menu options the "hamburger menu" would be a good way to go. A lot of users know this approach from big sites and apps like Facebook. It is an easy way to give your users all menu options while saving a lot of screen real estate for your content when your navigation doesn't need to be visible. If your 1st level categories are just ...

Well, the definition of toggle is to switch from one effect, feature, or state to another. In the case of a navigation, it's a change between states. On the other hand, an overlay is something laid as a covering over something else. As you can see by the two definitions, they're completely different things.

Increasing the lower limit above the upper limit automatically shunts the upper limit along, while decreasing the upper limit below the lower limit automatically shunts the lower limit down. If the user has manually entered a ...

I know I'm late to the party and although many have shared very interesting links to guidelines and documentation, I think we're missing the point in the answers IMHO. Adapting the layout and design to large screens TVs is not the responsibility of design, CSS, HTML, RWD, browser engines, HIG or any of those things. The way I see it, adapting your website ...

Responsive usually means changing the placement of elements at each breakpoint. You can combine a fluid design for 1170+ and then use responsive at lower resolutions. Did your design team check the break points as they were designing? Rarely do designs "break" exactly where we think they will. A simple way of designing is to make a mockup and then ...

Drip-feed roll-out. Remember when facebook used to make changes and everyone started groups protesting all the changes? I don't remember the last time I saw one of those. Why? They drip-feed their roll out. They start off with a small sample, gather feedback, iterate and then increase until everyone's included. PayPal, Google/Android, Facebook...all the ...

As far as the reasoning for redesign goes, your reasons are quite noble: you are thinking about your users. I am pretty sure users will appreciate that. Mobile accessibility is a big plus. I would start with that, making a big pre-release note/post about this, and mention redesign only as a side-effect. But if you really want to focus on communicating ...
