comment Should password fields have an unmask checkbox?
@Andrey The password is initially masked with a checkbox to unmask. For the layman, they don't know the difference between an html password field or an html textbox field with masked characters. Therefore I don't believe having a checkbox to unmask is going to make them feel less secure. It's all about the character looking like '***********'. You can stop the browser from caching a form field with autocomplete='off'. Modern browsers should support it.

comment Should password fields have an unmask checkbox?
Question is about providing an option to show the password. It's not about making it one way or the other. If I prefer to enter passwords in clear text and I am confident with this, I would like to have that option. Because what pisses me off is when I enter the wrong password because I couldn't see it AND the site decides to clear BOTH the user name and password. So now I have to renter the user name (possibly a long email address) which was correct in the first place. A lot of sites do this, and it's much more annoying on a mobile device because I am a lot slower typist on a tiny keyboard.

@Andrey Less confident can mean "I just typed a few characters and I am not confident I typed the correct ones." Elaborate more on how browsers treat masked passwords with more security.

comment Single 'Edit' link or two 'Edit' & 'Add' links for insert/update/delete operations
It sits in a form. The selection controls the rest of the form. When the selection changes, the page reloads to load the related data.

It's just a regular dropdownlist with an Edit hyperlink to its right. When the link is clicked, a popup form shows up to edit or delete the dropdownlist item. The fields are populated. The same form is used to add a new item to the list.

comment Switching to tab which has error when there's an error
So how is this to be done exactly? The error message is a top level message. Are you suggesting to change the tab background color or border color of the error tab to highlight it and so the user will know the error is in that tab? What if there are two errors in two different tabs?
