comment Why do people still like and use tables in HTML?
IIRC, IE also used to have an issue with the maximum number of div tags in a document. Not sure which version finally fixed this. Problem was tied to 32-bit code even though 64-bit versions existed. We found it because we were generating HTML and formatting with div instead of table. Large datasets broke on this maximum div count.

comment How to handle lots of legal text (40k words) on a webpage (also mobile)
What do you mean by "legal document" is this a contract of some sort or contractually binding? Why do you feel that breaking it into sections for more appropriate presentation voids this legal nature?

comment research: dark or light UI better outside
Also depends on the screen makeup. IPads and many other tablets have a very reflective surface which can be hard to use in daylight. Early Kindles had a "matte" finish which changes the dynamic of interaction with the eye.

comment Should export of an editable table view to Spreadsheet reflect user edits?
That use case could apply to someone who needs to verify their data in some excel related tool before saving... already saved would be a bad thing.

comment Overriding the default input method on smartphones
Not an answer because I can not point to concrete research, but I absolutely hate when some developer changes the expected behavior of the OS or device. Your companies change would push me away, not convert me.

comment Is a book more user friendly than an e-book?
I didn't mean to suggest that all bookmarks would fall out. But I have had a bookmark fall out of a physical book when I picked it up. So far, that has never happened with my Kindle :)
