comment How do I make a table row on a web page look draggable?
+1 for drag handles. A grid of dots is used in many places, including the right bottom corners of resizable windows (slightly different action).

comment Control to select (not open) a file on windows
Rahul, this is a file picker. A file opener is used when a file is "opened" for use after selecting the file. This is only "selecting" a file, storing the path of the file for later use. The dialog for selecting the file itself may be the same, but the use case is different.

comment Control to select (not open) a file on windows
Picking a file is indeed different to opening a file. Picking is only the "selecting" of a file. Opening is both the selecting and use of that file. Picking could lead to upload (as in the case of web forms), and "opening" doesn't even take place on the browser's end.

Roll back also implies some action will be taken to reverse a prior action. In the case of cancelling, no action is taken.

If your user has to wait for a tool tip, the icon isn't working.

comment iPhone & Mobile Web: Pagination vs. Load more vs. Scrolling
If the data is trivial (text, small thumbnails), auto loading is the most efficient for the user.
