comment Large set of options in a dropdown
Since it's been a long time you asked this question, if you have implemented the widget discussed herein, would you like to share it with all of us? It would be nice to see how it eventually got implemented. In fact you can post it as an answer, if you think you should.

comment Is the term 'real-time' understood outside the tech community?
+1. I also think "Live" has a universal ring to it which "realtime" lacks.

comment Will a Paste button increase usability?
I would rather have an all-text button in such a situation rather than an icon-based one. It's more direct. It's more likely to be clicked.

comment Would Chrome's “Recently Closed” button in the homepage benefit from having a link to access “History”
I have thought about this issue as well and don't see any reason why it shouldn't be there. I would like it to be there in the "Recently Closed" Menu.

comment Do “add” or “edit” functions need a confirm button?
I would not call "Add" a placebo in this situation. It seems to be pretty necessary and can go along with your "Hit Enter" functionality. Also, when user clicks off, I think it should cancel the operation rather than adding a new item. User may click outside if he accidentally hit the add button.

comment Should users be able to zoom in a responsive webdesign?
I am not too much against any of the suggestions you people are giving here but I would like to know how many people use the accessibility options provided these days in the modern phones. Especially @Mark , have you ever used Accessibility settings in your phone? I just researched and my iPod Touch has accessibility options for implementing system wide zoom using three finger touch. Have you used it ever? I mean if there is already a system in place for implementing zoom, there would be a less need to implement zoom based features on per-application basis.

@Mark - Accessibility options in modern mobile phones don't help much? I am only against scaling up of design elements rather than text.

comment Should users be able to zoom in a responsive webdesign?
As a designer, you are a curator too. You design an experience which you think is optimal for users. You may not want user to tinker with it too much as it may affect his experience unknowingly. I don't find the idea of giving too much control in the hands of users enticing other than perhaps the control over font-size which can easily be done.

comment Which is better option Create/Save for Activity and Circle?
So, a user picks a category and an event date and time and he not only creates an event but he also automatically becomes a member of a circle which is named after that category?! Is that so? The definition of a "circle" is too vague at the moment for us. It would help if you can expand!

By "Activity", I am guessing you mean an event, right? And what kind of "Circle" are you talking about?

Although "New" is inviting, "Add" is more direct as well as inviting!

comment Tab order for previous/next buttons in a form
Point to be noted here could be that even in the Windows XP dialog box, if I remember correctly, and I have done those installations hundreds of times, "next" used to be the active button on first launch and tab order would play from left to right such that "back" button would be last one in order.

comment new type of hours input
I am doubtful of its usability. It has a slight learning curve and is not a common practice to fill in time. What's wrong with simply giving two textfields for filling in hours and minutes? It is simple. It is traditional. It is usable. It saves any extra effort from the user (in a non-core task of just filling in his time).

That will also depend upon how attractive/interesting/reliable/visible/clear that waiting indicator is! ;)
