@André has a point- is this feature intuitively discoverable?

comment Are iPhone / mobile type toggle switches actually usable on the web?
@Roger Nice point there about 'state'- an implementation should be unambiguous about the current state and also indicate what will happen on 'toggling'.

comment Are round check boxes confusing or an accepted standard?
Agree with @Roger. There is no change in the underlying behavior which is that of a check box, so tinkering with the conventional visual representation makes the user 'pause', creating an unintentional hindrance.

comment How to accomodate a large set of filter controls horizontally on a page?
Great point there about not making the user think too much about filters.

comment How to accomodate a large set of filter controls horizontally on a page?
appreciate your time and effort in visualizing an alternative. Would this work when each filter (field) has predefined options from which the user has to select one or more options?

Yes this could be one way, though then it requires deciding what filters to include upfront.

comment How does a “visitor counter” on a web site affect user experience?
Nice point you have made there about trust. 'Like' or 'Share' has a higher credibility and is a better reflector of a site's or content's usefulness, than a plain visit count. All visits are counted but only if a visitor has found the page 'worthy', he/she would share or 'like' it.

comment How many items in a carousel should be shown to the user at a glance?
The context is that of a web application running on desktops. The number of items is variable ranging from 4 to around 10.

comment Is it a good practice to show a sign-up or registration form as seperate parts rather than in one go?
Hmm.. it can be staggered.. but like I said, some information is contextual and may not be displayed for a certain user type.

@Roger and @Monica Yes I agree with the point here- deciding what information is indispensable and what can be deffered would help streamline the procedure...

comment Is it a good practice to show a sign-up or registration form as seperate parts rather than in one go?
one kind of data is basic info like name, email etc, then there is also more detailed stuff like address, gender, date of birth, contact info etc, and lastly there are some user-type dependent questions...

comment What to call UI element like 'like' or 'mark as favorite' ?
even I was thinking of them as 'toggle buttons' as they have two states amongst which a user can switch.

comment What term or icon to use for marking an item for quick access later on?
@Roland- I agree with your point on 'liking' as a means of sharing. So is it right to say that, it can be taken an indicator of popularity? Also from what I interpret, 'adding to favorites' combines both 'liking' and 'starring'. What do you think?
