comment How to display ranges in a map legend
Ok I see, even though I don't think your method would work as well for discrete lines (such as pipes), it would work perfectly for polygons (areas). Thanks for your insights!

Nice, but edge values are still ambiguous?

I like your idea, but how would you word it so edge values are not ambiguous? It's still not clear in which category 50mm falls.

comment What is the most intuitive way to highlight items which require attention or were updated since last log-in?
+1 for mentioning that the grid might be too large: it sparked the idea that all items would not be visible in the grid all the time, so maybe a update notification alert at the top of the grid might be the best option

Okay, just thought it may be a good reference for other users. Would it be appropriate to make it a community wiki?

comment Tabbed browsing. Why close the application on closing the last tab?
Agreed, I was surprised by this behavior. Often, I just want to close all my tabs and start researching something new. This means I have to keep that last pesky tab open till I've added a new tab. In its defense, it is a very learn-able behavior.

comment How exactly does good usability cut development time?
I concede that if you factor in maintenance, etc throughout the whole life-cycle of the product, there would be savings. Initially it would take more development time (which was what I was trying to get at)

comment Plus icon for new tab not working in user testing. Anomaly or actually confusing for users…
:) yes, true. It was a cheap shot at IE (Opera had it since 2000)

In our case there is a tree-view like menu on the right (smallish links) and some larger tabs at the top, that would navigate to the same functionality. I reckon in this case it is "good" duplication.
