comment Does a password strength indicator increase password strength?
Without a doubt it does. I can't point you to literature that gives evidence of it, but I can guarantee password strength indicators do increase average password strength.

comment Reasons to change font in websites
@DoktoroReichard - the font was not the only noticeable change. I don't mean to sound pedantic or overly authoritative neither google nor wikipedia would just change their fonts without it being in the context of a larger change. The other changes might be subtle, but I can almost guarantee they were considered alongside the change in fonts. If you're going to try to improve the design, you don't just think about new fonts, generally speaking.

comment Should clicking the logo for a website while on the home page reload the page?
@Keavon - definitely disable the pointer effects or any indication that it's a link, because in this situation it's not a link. The whole point is to provide little bits of info and feedback: this is not a link because it's pointless to have this link in this context. A good way to think about it is that the logo is a quick link/shortcut to get to the home page, but only if it makes sense for a shortcut to be there, and if you're already on the home page it doesn't make sense. I think people get it that if the logo link is dead, that's a clue that they're one the home page already.

comment Responsive Webdesign: How to reduce headlines, labels etc on smaller devices
I like to use a narrower font for headlines. Oswald is one of my favorites for this, narrow, but still looks like a headline. google.com/fonts/specimen/Oswald

comment How can I direct people from a mobile app to specifically a desktop site?
So the idea is a kind of bookmark that you want to guide/nudge them into opening with a desktop computer?

comment Do interfaces evolve?
@DA01 - I disagree. The theoretical principles of evolution originated in the field of biology but have since been applied in many other areas. Richard Dawkins pioneered this in this first few books. Some of this thinking/research can be considered philosophy, but much of it is firmly in the domain of science, both theoretical and applied.

@DA01 - evolution can apply to much more than biological systems.
