comment Should I avoid using “abort” in favor of its synonyms?
That's a good point: aborting is the act of stopping something which is already in progress (although you could obviously just 'stop' the mission, but it doesn't sound as dramatic and technical).

Its also rather a 'dated' word - I'd associate it putting men on the moon and 'aborting the mission'.

comment Where to position Back and Home buttons?
Just a personal opinion - but for me 'back always takes me to the left - so the 'back' icon should be on the left hand side.

comment Does dark colour affect user's trust?
Given that the site shown is selling fencing equipment (ie swords), it's possible that "a little bit aggressive" was the desired intention...

comment Is the icon for telephone outdated?
Android also uses a handset icon. And offices still have conventional corded handsets so I think the traditional phone will be with us a while longer.

comment Why do we say UX for User Experience rather than UE?
I'd noted that below: it looks like the preference for the X came from the gaming community - and then when games went digital so did the X.

comment What is the purpose of jackets having small zipperless back pockets just below the neck?
It's quite a good example of how aesthetic considerations crossover between the physical and digital worlds: aspects of the design of an on-screen interface may have no usability consideration: the use of colours and graphics might be there just because they 'look good'. And the same applies to physical items.

It looks like 'used in gaming' is the answer Toni. I'll tick that as the answer if anyone would like to post it as an answer not a comment.
