comment Touch versus trace typing
Are you really comparing swiping on a phone with touch-typing on a keyboard?

One thing that got me thinking was if this was a website or a browser "problem".

comment Back breaking sites
That is a technical explanation. I am looking for a usability angle. Why would you revert the state, basically to 0-state when you go somewhere else and then back? Would seem much more logical to me to keep the things already as they are, especially because you already downloaded also the things you did with ajax. (btw this considers not only ajax)

comment How do you build empathy for users that you don't relate to?
@Dunk wow that company lied to me, I'm so annoyed. That company billed me twice and hoped I wouldn't notice, I'm so annoyed. That company put a bad roof on my house and now I'm homeless, I'm so annoyed. Well, I guess then it's a philosophical edge that anger by definition is a choice. Also experiencing rudeness is by that standard a choice.

This may need some self-reflection, but what did your company do for a normally civil and polite person to become an angry rude person. There have been products and services which have driven me mad on more the one occasion.

comment Why do financial institutions use usernames instead of emails for login?
you could turn the question around and ask: why in their good mind would anyone ever want to use an emailadres as login name?

comment What's the difference between [website.com/directory] and [domain.website.com]?
@ArlaudPierre Mostly a way of how you view things. Apple.com and Google.com are subdomains of the .com domain. Apple.example.com and Google.example.com are in the same way subdomains of .example.com domain.

comment What's the difference between [website.com/directory] and [domain.website.com]?
A subdomain is not part of the site, but can and should be considered a different computer/location/server, a subdirectory should be considered part of a site on the same server as other subdirectories on that site.

comment What's the difference between [website.com/directory] and [domain.website.com]?
Traditionally domain.website.com and website.com can be two different computers sometimes even at other sides of the world. It's just that the computer at website.com has the adressbook for all subdomains.

comment Has an optional “browser upgrade” message ever worked?
Don't you think you see less and less of those buttons is: because it doesn't work?

I would love a button in my browser to send websites the message: "be standards compliant", do you think that could work?

comment How to assign values to buckets
Option 1 uses checkboxes implying that an item can also be in both bucket A and B or in neither. Radiobuttons (the round version) would be a better choice.
