Izhaki - we're emailing a product comparison chart. So once you've selected a few products you're interested in you can send yourself the side-by-side comparison.

This would be a good approach, unfortunately our site has no sign-in feature so we wouldn't be able to do the comparison.

comment Mobile navigation - off-canvas or dropdown?
An interesting way to distinguish -- but I also like Keiwes's point about off-canvas navigation not blending in with the vertical content. I also was under the impression that many mobile browsers do support swiping, so it may just be a matter of a little extra coding to recognize gestures.

comment iOS views with 2 primary actions instead of just one
Twitter has 2 action buttons in the upper right -- search and compose. Due to space constraints I think this only works if the actions can be represented with icons that are immediately understandable.

comment Show 6 share buttons vs one button that opens tooltip with 6 share buttons
This is very similar to a question I asked a couple years ago -- there was not a clear, easy answer, but it seemed like "keep the number of networks small, and show them directly" was a reasonable approach: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/4063/…

comment What is a name for this “plate” scrolling functionality?
Josh, not to get on a tangent, but I'm not sure how you can separate the concept a sticky header from navigation -- it seems the primary use case/argument in favor of making something sticky is because it allows quick access to navigation: uxdesign.smashingmagazine.com/2012/09/11/…

Thanks! This is definitely a rare technique but it's helpful to see it documented and named somewhere.

Thanks guys! It is similar to a sticky header, but it doesn't do one of the main things a sticky header does, which is make site navigation constantly visible.
