comment Why is the input field always at the bottom of a chat window?
@lzkata The 'placeholder' code is part of the 'textarea' tag. It is split over two lines (still valid html).

comment Does a site with a sticky NAV need NAV elements replicated in the footer?
In the case that you have an expanded menu like the New York Times, then I think the footer nav is probably a good call.

revised 'Open' signs on commercial buildings - why are most of them red?
Removed link to Wien's law since the evolution of the eye may have been influenced by the spectral absorption properties of water than by the Sun's spectrum.

comment Why doesn't the calculator in iPhone have a backspace?
Agreed! But that's not to say it's good reasoning. Most old calculators likely don't have a backspace because of limitations in their logic/memory, and keyboards don't change case simply because they can't (unless you have one of those fancy keyboards with LED screens on the keys). These are limitations due to their design being tactile. A poorer UX shouldn't be translated over to a digital interface just because its real-world counterpart has it.

If it is draggable like the columns, then you should. It's good to be consistent if the action is the same.

comment Is fixed, persistent navigation now considered good UX?
That is a very interesting take on it (Google does it with their Google Now app). My only worry is that people might take their focus off of the content to look at the suddenly visible nav bar, whereas a constantly visible bar would be less of a shock. A properly done transition might combat that, though.
