Gosh, what an incredibly comprehensive answer. Thanks for that (and +1 of course)

comment How to handle long processing task in UI?
+1 Options 1 and 2 are sometimes simply not a solution. I work on client/server software that processes huge amounts of data and throwing hardware at it doesn't help (anymore), and while query results are cache-able (to some extent as they are not simple resources), they cannot be served (as yet) by other more general software. (The client can't handle it).

comment Is there a unified font size metric across all applications?
+1 On the same machine for the same user, the variance should be limited to different applications handling measurements differently.

comment Is there a unified font size metric across all applications?
Sorry no, 20 points is 20 points, and 20 points is 20/72 of an inch. No two ways about it. Differences come about when you size in pixels, as you then become dependent on the dpi of the output device (printer or screen). That is exactly why you should always use device independent measurements.

comment How to make it obvious that you can drag things that you normally can't?
When you focus an input box in Chrome look at its bottom right corner. It shows two diagonal lines. When you drag that corner, you re-size the input box. Couldn't live without it when entering comments on SE.

Show drag handles just like the input boxes in Chrome, the status bar on Windows desktop apps etc.

comment Best way to display whether someone is the right age for a match on an online dating site?
@user1946603: if users specify their age as a range, they can also specify the range of ages they would be willing to consider. Don't force it upon them. You always have people more interested in younger versus ones more interested in older dating partners. There also is a gender difference where males tend to prefer younger partners and females tend to be prefer slightly older partners but seem to be less fussed over age than males.

@user1946603: allow your users to set the age range (the green range) they are willing to consider instead of dictating it to them (and trying to get it right for everybody in vain).
