Mozilla used to publish usability studies, didn't they? I can't seem to find anything recent...

+1 for the idea of looking at the "empty" state as a proper design challenge.

comment How to handle pagination in lists that autoupdate
Do all the lists update at once? (In other words, does a single update cause all lists to change at once?)

comment Does the use of lines improve the usability of tree widgets?
It was a great (if misguided) answer before and now with the edit it's an excellent one, that could benefit many people. -1 --> +1.

To be clear, you are referring to something like this, right?

Good discussion of using zebra stripes with trees, but I don't think zebra stripes are what the OP meant. I think he meant lines that connect parents to children - "lines to connect the hierarchy of nodes."

comment App interface for changing relational percentages
Auto-adjusting is great as long as precision across the pots isn't a priority. It would be frustrating if you knew that Pot A needed to be exactly 12, but every time you adjusted another pot, Pot A auto-adjusts in reaction.

@John Couldn't agree more about the mini-tabs being a problem. I'm guessing they were included for business and not UX reasons. I never switch tabs, and I'm sure people that actually do would be happier using a drop-down menu rather than tabs.

comment Master Reference - Objects Sync
Can you add some more concrete details about what these abstract Objects, Parameters, Values and Templates actually are? It's hard to guess how users might react in these scenarios when the context is so abstract.

Glad to help, Nic! @BenBrocka, I think Google was trying to send a message to Apple that native apps aren't the only show in town, so they really wanted to push the envelope. Also, last I checked, the Gmail web app is still more polished (and feature-rich) than their native iOS Gmail app.
