comment Why we don't use wider interfaces on wide screens
Screens aren't built for highlighting or note taking in the margins though.

comment Preventing users from closing browser tab. Bad idea?
@AndroidHustle For example, if you start typing something HERE and go to exit, you get a warning. Why? Loss of data when you lose the half typed post. Something like THAT is understandable You haven't finished your post, are you sure you want to leave?. Not sure I'd feel good about other pop-ups. I'd put them in the same league as pop-unders.

comment How to “force” users to upgrade their browser?
@greenforest Take the fact that CF is going to be a subset of IE - and a subset of OLD IE at that... and that not many sites put forward something like my example - I would expect the % of CF users to be very low. I would also separate the options on my site (Want/Need to keep IE? Use CF. Want to try something new? Try on of these: C,FF,S,IE10). Its a valid option for those without other options.

@naught101 Yeah... More information on the "We can't help you, Try this:" page couldn't hurt. I posted this example (basecamp) because its the one example that I've ran into that just worked easily (Plugin and Done).

comment How to “force” users to upgrade their browser?
@JonW Well the key is that support for it is adding an extension and a tag. Can someone do it? Depends on IT backing and Web Dev backing. But the ability to support IE6-9 with two simple steps can't be passed up.

@JonW Not everyone can stay "Up-To-Date". Up-To-Date breaks applications that haven't been updated. Businesses don't like that. You can't depend on a business app that might be updated out of style, outside of your control. People can hate IE all day long, but it's stable in a way that FF/Chrome/Safari isn't (I prefer Chrome, but understand the business logic).

comment Should people be able to change their usernames?
Normalize the users. On the backend, you have UserID 8765, UserName "Jane Doe". 8765 is the same user no matter if the UserName is "Jane Doe" or "Jane Smith". Same goes for Address, Credit Cards, Favorite Color... all tie to 8765. Not 'jdoe'.
