comment Good reasons to use bad UI
@ajkochanowicz you wrote "The former has been used so often, users are much more efficient with the convention of QWERTY than with the unfamiliarity with Dvorak." - it could take about few days to learn and get used to new keyboard layout, but the efficiency will increase. So IMHO it is better to use better UI rather than bad UI. QWERTY was created for have TYPEWRITER word on the top row for faster typing this word and for better selling typing machines. It is now became obsolete and it is better to choose new better layout standard.

@ajkochanowicz You may use Dvorak solution en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvorak_Simplified_Keyboard Qoute: Dvorak proponents claim the Dvorak layout uses less finger motion, increases typing rate, and reduces errors compared to the standard QWERTY keyboard.

comment Removing placeholder text on focus
@BenBrocka If we are duplicating label text in placeholder text (very often) and sometimes user could not understand that placeholder text is the hint text so there is no need to use the placeholder at all and it is more clear for user to leave blank input and simple label. Hm, funny, I returned to the point from where the web-forms were started many years ago :)

comment Removing placeholder text on focus
I updated the code, I think this would be more clear for user which input is focused - jsfiddle.net/webvitaly/bGrQ4/2/embedded/result Now if user focus the input, the placeholder text become more lighter to indicate that it is only the hint and exactly this input is focused. This code works in chrome only, because other browsers remove placeholder on focus.

comment Why should we ask the password twice during registration?
Pretty good solution of the problem. But I think this example - jsfiddle.net/webvitaly/Jdtke/embedded/result could solve major part of problems better. Problems like: asking password once, showing password for avoiding mistakes and hiding password for security.

1) are you sure that with this "dfi&!ue.jx#%$h@!$df" it is easier to start than with this "chup@dora321" for example? :) 2) "chup@dora321" has almost same level of security that auto generated "dfi&!ue.jx#%$h@!$df". But it is impossible to remember this "dfi&!ue.jx#%$h@!$df" and it is bad UX.
