comment Is there a benefit to Mac OSX red/yellow/green title bar buttons being so small?
Good points. I edited the question to get closer to what I was looking for, which was to try to understand whether there's any usability benefit that may outweigh the obvious problems with this UI. I'm wondering if I'm overlooking something obvious. Let me know if you think these edits make it a more appropriate question for SE.

comment force-click vs secondary click (right click) in OS X?
I agree that the force click gesture is a good and discoverable one. But the essence of my question is why force click wasn't mapped to the secondary click? And if it's not, then what is force click supposed to do in iOS?

comment Inline-editable list item doubling as link to detail page
For what it's worth, our team finds JIRA's behavior described above infuriating because we do a lot more editing than linking. Some fields that are not linkable can be edited by clicking on the field, but linkable fields cause a lot of accidental links. So if you're going to provide this feature, I'd suggest you be really sure that linking is a common activity before changing the "edit on click" behavior that non-linkable fields will have. If linking is less common, then consider making an additional action button to navigate to the detail page instead of having it be a hyperlink.

comment Localization-friendly label for “Products ordered in last [ ] orders”
Embedding in the dropdown was exactly the approach we decided on. @DasBeasto is correct that the dropdown approach may have localization issues too, but you can change the "Products ordered in last" to be a regular label (e.g. "Products Recently Ordered:") that doesn't rely on the dropdown completing a sentence, and then the localization issues are addressed. But it was putting the text in the dropdown that was the core of the improvement, so marking this as accepted answer. Thanks Tony!
