comment Does my website still have to support Internet Explorer 8 and earlier?
I agree that there is a point at which an app doesn't have a meaningful HTML-only version (like a browser game). In that case, you should probably tell people that their browser isn't supported. But in many cases, the app is just a skin on basic HTML functionality: a slider is a fancy text input, a file chooser is a fancy selection dialog etc. It does pay to build these things on top of basic HTML functionality when you can.

comment How do you make it very obvious that the user should click on a text input that has an onclick event?
In your example, much would be helped by removing the white space between the text and the button. Things that are close together are associated in the mind. With this much white space, people lose the connection.

comment What is the reason for Concave round buttons in Elevators
These are good answers, but apart from the weight one (which I doubt is a concern), they aren't specific to elevators. It does seem that you only see buttons like this in elevators, and not on traffic lights, microwaves, airplane cockpits, etc. If these are really the cause, why haven't designers in other areas taken over the design?

comment Is “Chicken Box” an appropriate term for a Yes/No dialogue with a warning?
It should be mentioned that these are kind of an anti-pattern in UX design. They're easy on the programmer, but usually not the best option to actually prevent the user from making mistakes.

comment Web Form With About 350 Fields Layout
true, but less so. It's grayed out, and doesn't affect the shape of the field. I guess it all depends on the use cases. Will the form always be used to fill in the fields linearly, or will it be used for editing as well?

comment Web Form With About 350 Fields Layout
It's absolutely fine to want to store 350 attributes for each employee. The insanity lies in forcing them all into one form with a single column layout. There's no one-size-fits-all solution here. It depends on the meaningful structures you can use to group the attributes and on the use cases of the users.

comment Web Form With About 350 Fields Layout
Perhaps they're easier to scan linearly, but imagine changing only a user's date of birth. In the left form, the forms can be recognized by their shape. In the right you have to actually read the label.

comment Does “Don't Break The Back Button” Apply To Web Applications?
I don't have any to hand (I could google, but you've probably done that already). It might be worth a fresh question.
