comment Does Firefox adjust font-size for larger screens?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it would be better asked on SuperUser.com

comment Is Holistic vs Subjective the same as Reductionist vs Objective?
Reopened since the question is much more clear--I do agree with @Devin though, it could be useful to know the specific books and arguments you're referring to, to help build context.

comment Should I open a Live Chat as a popup or as a new tab?
I've almost always experienced support chat pop ups as a new window (a real window, not a tab, not a modal window on the same browser page). At least on desktop, that's what I would recommend if only out of familiarity. Don't have quite enough experience to flesh that out into an answer though.

comment Do we really need a review tab on a wizard pattern?
A good example of this is pretty much any ecommerce cart, most will assure you that you'll have a chance to review the order before you confirm it.

comment Multiple Save Buttons after Editing Information
Google Docs is a good example of this pattern--for a while they had a placebo save button but eventually they removed it. Though Google Docs is a single-entry sort of deal, can't think of immediate examples of multi-section autosaves, but I'm sure I've seen them.

comment Labeling personal name field
What exactly is each field used for--is the "full name" field basically a display name, what other users see in the interface? Since you say there's more than one field I assume you have to keep first/last name as fields and this is a third input?

comment what is the best way for a user to securely share from a public device & app?
Are you talking about sharing information to others, or basically saving information for later personal use? Do you have a specific use case?

comment Why is the drag area usually limited to the “title bar”?
It's usually best to use "grips", little textured sections for users to drag on.

comment Name for: thumbnail getting big and spreads text?
Ohhh you mean the big image not the little ones. Huh. Not really sure there's a word for it other than zooming

I'd say this is sort of like a non-conventional Accordion? jqueryui.com/accordion

comment Delete permanently or temporarily
What are the items? Seems almost more like a "dismiss" action than "delete" if the items aren't immediately/eventually removed

comment What do you call a layout of non-regular non-overlapping tiles?
Thanks to Google + I want to call it "cards" but that's not quite right. It's certainly a rising trend, and it's well beyond the point where it can be called just "pinterest like"

comment What do you call a layout of non-regular non-overlapping tiles?
This seems visually similar but I've never seen the term applied to a UI.

comment Are carousels effective?
Fixed @JonW's link thanks to Kathy E Gill on twitter Images are still broken but the article's titled "Taking a ride with carousels" and the text is all intact.

comment Alternatives to “Like”, “+1”, “Bookmark”, and “Favorite”?
Never been a big fan of this pattern, I've noticed Buzzfeed uses it. Just seems to splinter reactions into something harder to sort by (no universal "quality" metric). I'd want to be very sure you need all those emotions/statements as opposed to a binary choice or a rating scale.

comment Why to go with and when to use the “friend” or “follow” strategy?
I honestly don't know what it does on Deviant Art, I assume it's just a categorization for your sake.

comment Why to go with and when to use the “friend” or “follow” strategy?
As a sidenote, I find it very odd that Deviant Art basically has both systems; you have to "watch" to get updates, but there's a checkbox for "friend". I find it annoying that the box is prepopulated because, at least as a passive user, I'm basically never friends with the artist.

comment Why don’t we remove door handles and let doors open both ways (inwards, outwards)?
Are you talking about revolving or plain handleless doors? Handleless doors settle to the closed position unless locked open, you just let them close themselves. I'm pretty sure revolving doors simply lock in place if needed for security.

comment What is this hover menu on mobile website called? is it custom built or third party tool?
Reminds me most of the Windows 8 charm bar, though I know it's not unique. Not sure if "charm bar" is accepted as a universal term though
