comment Are there any downsides of including google-analytics on your website?
You'll also find they don't agree 'the other way', if you see what I mean. One of the drivers behind GA is the fact that pages fetched by many people behind a caching proxy won't result in hits on your server, so you won't see the stats. Tracking things client-side mitigates this to SOME extent but, of course, there are still the caveats that you mentioned.

comment What are the minimum steps that I should follow to ensure that my web site is accessible to the disabled?
There are several caveats for the 'alt text' rule. Unfortunately, I've worked with people who treat it as a hard-and-fast rule - i.e. EVERY image MUST have an alt attribute. Then they add things like "Our company's logo" to a logo image, and "a big blue 't'" to an image linked to a twitter account.

comment Font resizing widgets: worth it?
This is yet another case of a question that might be better asked (and already has been) on uxexchange.com

comment Removing non-www support
Yup, I also believe it's better to make it a R=301, to indicate that the redirect should be considered permanent.

comment Form label position for best usability
Yes - it's a bit of an 'issue'. I believe uxexchange was set up using the 'old SO' model. Sites using the new model, such as webmasters, seem to be getting a lot more attention. So something that's more relevant to uxexchange ends up being more successful on webmasters. I'm not sure what the solution is - migrate uxexchange?

Is this not more appropriate for uxexchange.com? (uxexchange.com)
