comment Should Portfolio Site Backgrounds Be Static?
we can't really answer this without context. Even then, it's mostly subjective opinion.

comment Comparing and merging user interface revisions from multiple people
@MichaelHogan there's a big difference between 'equivalent visual look' and 'equivalent UX'. Yes, there are multiple ways to come up with the same visual look--no, they won't necessarily produce an equivalent UX. This is an important distinction. Your idea about using diff tools is a good thought. But it's going to be really hard to do. As there are often good reasons to make something visually the same, yet coded in a different way. And vice versa. It's all about context and, unfortunately, diff tools have no care about the context.

comment UX Patterns for Multi-Monitor Thick Client Apps
I don't think it's so much that you design FOR multiple monitors, but you design the app so it doesn't INTERFERE with those that use multiple monitors.

comment Does my website still have to support Internet Explorer 8 and earlier?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is too localized. Whether to support a particular old browser has to be decided on a project by project basis based on target audience, technology, budget and a plethora of other factors.

comment Is there a comprehensive list of modern mobile UI/UX design patterns related to view navigation?
Comprehensive? That's a matter of opinion. But there are plenty of UI pattern libraries out there. Google 'mobile ui patterns' or 'mobile ux patters'

@JonW we redirect some questions here as being duplicate. I think this is a question that should be reopened and made community wiki (my 2 cents)

comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
@VitalyMijiritsky yes, definitely good point. And even when designing in the browser, Photoshop is still heavily used. Just in a different way.

I know it was said in jest, but typically, a desktop app offers a whole lot more control in terms of consistency that you don't typically get with web sites. As such, if you were to design in Photoshop, it would make a bit more sense to do so for desktop apps than web apps.

comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
Ha! Well, maybe. But I design in the browser all the time. Tools like Firebug or Chrome console means you actually can design directly in the browser if we want to pick nits. :) That said, the term 'designing in the browser' while perhaps technically debatable is the common term used to refer to 'designing with actual code/markup rather than photoshop'

comment Use one page design for website with a detailed “request a quote” form?
There's also no reason a OPW can't be SEO friendly either. In otherwords, it's all about the specifics of implementation--not the number of pages the site has.

comment Use one page design for website with a detailed “request a quote” form?
There's nothing more/less intuitive between one page site and a 100 page site. It's all in the design and implementation. Both can be good options.

comment Use one page design for website with a detailed “request a quote” form?
Again, what do you perceive is the benefit of a one page site? There's really no general way to answer this. It's all going to depend on the particularities of your site.

Of course you can design in a browser. If you're writing the HTML, CSS and JS to create a web site, that's designing.

What value does a one page site bring to your project? If you can answer that, then there's your answer.

comment The best way to get users to trust a website as an operating system
I'm not sure what the UX question is here, exactly. I don't think you are asking for feedback on using a desktop UI inside a browser, but rather how to sell the idea to your audience who seems confused. That seems to be more of a PR question.

comment Whitespace in Web Design: Why You Should Use It?
The same reasons you'd use it for print: putting focus on particular areas, improving legibility, aiding in comprehension, visual balance, etc.

comment Isn't www.google.com violating one of the most important design and usability principles?
@metamorphosis I'd qualify my opinion with Google's stock prices. :) Granted, it's not just because of UX that Google is where they are at, but I'd argue if this was truly a usability issue for Google, they'd have done something about it already--as ad revenue from google searches is a major part of their business model. NOT that I don't agree that it's generically a usability concern, but as with much of UX, it really does depend heavily on context.

comment Do people who are not power users open links in new tabs?
But would it matter? Since the back button serves this purpose fine, and most anyone is familiar with that, why not let the user handle that if they are OK with that.

comment Isn't www.google.com violating one of the most important design and usability principles?
@metamorphosis my opinion is the same in both situations. Google is making a calculated decision here.

@Jayfang that is an excellent point.
