comment Is there any research on downsides of Google's undo design?
@EvilClosetMonkey - your answer implies that the Google way is the only sensible way undo could be implemented, all others are more or less stupid. It's a bold statement...

37 kb. If that's too large, an upgrade of internet provider might be something to consider :)

comment General symbol for randomization
The shuffle icon is probably a more accurate way of saying "reorder my current objects" rather than "randomly add new". Pressing shuffle on an iPod doesn't add new song to the list. It may, however, work out in your case.

comment Infinite scrolling + back button
The question is: Do users have a problem with clicking the back button after scrolling and generally expect it to not go back to the previous web page? I know that it's a problem for some when there are AJAX-ish loaded web content inside paged, where the user thinks he has changed page after an interaction...

comment Infinite scrolling + back button
My first thought is that pressing back when I have scrolled down to go up one page is pretty abstract - since I don't scroll down one "page" at a time. So the back stage is trying to mimic a discrete step of something that is continuous.

comment one button, two functions?
I have a strong feeling that users read text labels on buttons (at most) once - to learn what the button does. The second time they will press it without reading. Users would go fatigue if each control had to be reevaluated before each use, and users are lazy and act on instinct!

comment Show or don't show the currently selected option in menu or dropdown
What did your user testing results show (if any are done)? I think such a specific case as you have describe above is pretty easy to measure since the faster a user finds the menu entry - the better the design.

If you are going to change a standard control that's been around for many years you should have lots of research material to support that your changes really are improvements. The users are used to use the controls as they "normally work". However - this is not the same as "one should never break standards".
