"Questrial" doesn't come with bold and italic styles, and when the browser does it, it's not really nice. :) But all I needed was an opinion from a Windows user, so, thanks for that.

comment Is it better to ask for 'full name' or 'first name' and 'last name' in a registration form?
@sree (2) targeting audience like that would be difficult for a general app isnt it? unless its geo based sites ? When we do not have a specific target audience, we should prepare for the worst -- i.e., try to make the registration form more understandable , as best as you can.

@sree 2. how to identify target audience before they register? Simple answer is, you should know your target audience. You do not start a project without knowing your target audience (or put it this way, the country, or region of population you would like to target). And still don't understand how my question offended you. :)

@sree (1) may not and do not have very different meanings. (2) You don't need evidence to say that. It's commonsense. If everyone knew the meaning of first name and last name, there wouldn't be so many questions about them on the web.

comment Good reasons to use bad UI
@blesh hmm... makes sense. I simply don't understand why no one documents the changes. It would actually make the changeover a whole lot smoother for the users. Not even Google does this all the time. I am loving the questions on this site. Great insights.

revised Save icon, is the floppy disk icon dead?
I didn't realize what he meant until I googled it. So, I added an image which makes it clear.

comment Why do progress bars animate backwards?
You have a good eye. Very good question indeed. @fredley What did you use to take the animated screenshot? It would be handy.

IMO, we can learn something from how Google does it all the time. For instance, "The old Google Groups will be going away soon. Switch to the new Google Groups." Tell folks that the change is imminent, and you better get ready. It's better than changing everything overnight. I am no UX expert (nor from this field), but a normal user, and this is my simple understanding. :) @blesh you nailed it, by the way.
