comment Should I use Yes/No or Ok/Cancel on my message box?
@mskfisher: it wasn't so bad this time around since the longer help text does explain which clearly, but yes, it certainly could be improved.

comment When to use Pull Down to Refresh and when to use a Refresh Button?
you should also consider always refreshing without user action, taking care so the screen does not scroll, and probably have an unobtrusive screen element to notify that there is a new item.

@Laurent: using Yes/No or Ok/Cancel made me think which button belong to which action; don't make me think.

comment Why is resizing the browser window bad practice?
+1 for You're taking control away from the user. The user is the pilot, a respectable program would not take the control stick away from the pilot.

comment Will faster GUI always make one more efficient?
@user unknown: in certain applications, you might regularly work with dragging and dropping objects or scrolling the screen and in these sort of applications low frame rate will be perceived as jerkiness. While jerkiness itself might not affect our theoretical ability to interact with the software, the annoyance caused by the jerkiness might preoccupy the mind of the user such that it decreases productivity. Certainly while 200ms response is Ok for pushing buttons, it is probably way too slow for drag and drop.

comment To use or not to use “Zebra Stripes”, or Alternating Row Colors for Tables
@Joe Philllips: The idea is that since a screen can change the highlighted row/column does not need to be static. The primary idea is that we can infer which row/column that the user is currently interested at by observing user's behavior; the input for highlighting does not have to be a mouse, it can be eye tracking, or last clicked/tapped row/column (for touchscreen), or the arrow key in keyboard (for users that doesn't have or cannot use mouse or prefers keyboard navigation). The basic idea is that we can and should take advantage of the fact that computer screen is dynamic.
