comment Why does the green “+” button in Mac apps only maximize the height?
I use Command-Shift-F, although it moves the window to another desktop, so I often press it again when I'm done to get back where I was. During the transition effect I whistle the free software song

comment Is this element using the correct affordance?
It would be acceptable, if it acted and animated like a slider (as well as being clickable for convenience).

@DA01 I had not made it clear that I was talking about <button> elements, which do not have this functionality. I have now updated the answer!

comment Are terrible-looking skins still considered friendly?
If it is the case that some users prefer to work with a business that has "personality", perhaps we can compromise somewhere in the middle. Keep the UI slick, but show pictures and bios of the employees accessible from the front page?
