comment What should I consider when designing a downloads page for an open source software?
Here's an arrangement that you might find interesting or useful: en.dev.inkscape.org/download (a website under development; observe that the download page is not complete, as well as being out of date). It contains all the information for all platforms, and then, in client-side JavaScript, shifts the block for the user's operating system up to the top, and in the case of Mac OS X, highlights the appropriate version.

You don't find that SourceForge handles mirror selection well? I've always found it pretty good, and they do have mirrors in the region.

@BenBrocka: it may have been a typo, but I've seen several people confusing the two. If it were almost any other word I'd just ignore it.

I think this belongs on meta.

comment Should web users see the http:// prefix to websites?
(Apologies, by the way, for I did not read fully. That's a problem when commenting becomes too easy. You comment before reading it all. And it is a real problem! And even UX related!)

comment Should web users see the http:// prefix to websites?
I can't convey my shudder well enough in text. I don't have a TV and I only very occasionally overhear radio, but I can't say I've ever come across "backslash" being used in any context with URLs; or for that matter mentioning the http:// at all in spoken content in ads (in Melbourne, Australia).

backslash? I hope you haven't ever been saying "backslash". "Backslash" is \, "forward slash" or generally just plain "slash" is /.

And why not include a label? Are they too scary?

comment Are custom scroll bars easier to use or do they just look “nice”?
Methinks you are thinking they're custom by the website, but they're actually the browser's or OS's ones.

comment Technical Word for “time spent on website”?
Using TOS as an acronym is not likely to be a good idea; it'll be generally recognised as "Terms of Service".

comment Traffic lights: “yellow” is progress, not state
I've come across this in a number of traffic lights in Hyderabad, India. Never in any other part of Andhra Pradesh or anywhere in West Bengal that I've visited, though. Nor in Australia, where I live.

comment Traffic lights: “yellow” is progress, not state
In Victoria, Australia, yellow (they changed it from amber at some point) is defined as meaning "stop if it is safe to do so".

comment Best practices for selecting time
Sounds to me like you're trying to do exactly what Wufoo do. See how they represent time in their Time sheet example.

comment What are some approaches for avoiding rounded corners?
Just let the people using old browsers miss the rounded borders. In general you've got to do quite a bit depending on rounded borders before you make a page look distinctly bad without them rendering.
