comment Should a UK address form have 2 or 3 address lines fields?
@TrevörAnneDenise That would be good, except the post town and post code should be in separate fields if you need to extract that information then ask for county as a separate fields as it is after the post town. However if non UK the all these fields might not exist - see the link in JonW's comment - note also some people don't know their "correct" address but give a form that will get to them

comment Should users be able to zoom in a responsive webdesign?
Some icons are too small - sometime the designer wants the page to fit to the width of the screen including the sidebar so I enlarge the page to get the info across the screen not the page so in general it helps. But the CUSTOMER MUST decode on the view. The designer gives a suggestion that can be overridden
