I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a request for IE support. It isn't a UX Design problem needing solving.

@DA01 It's not really semantics. This whole answer is written from the point of view of demo'ing to a client. OP is specifically asking about how recruiters view Lorem text. Not only that, but the whole answer is very subjective as well with nothing other than Voltspecter's opinion. Not actually reading the question and posting a subjective, opinion based answer isn't something we should be encouraging.

comment Best Practice Users and Businesses URLs
I like this approach as it gives the user clear indiciation of the type of page they are looking at. For example there are businesses out there named after people (i.e. Ben Sherman) so there could be confusion when just reading the URL if there isn't an indication that it is a business and not a user.

One point of caution with this though - you probably don't want such custom links directly off the site root. Pages on the site root may be specific to the site (such as dummy.com/contact-us) so having user or company pages hanging off the root directly could cause confusion (or at worse, duplication with critical site pages). If your answer is the one that is chosen I would suggest having an additional level of hierarchy there (dummy.com/company/{name}) for situations where there will be many instances of a type.

There may be lots of users, but how many companies will there be? Just AcmeCorporation or zoos there be more than just the one?

There are no clients in this situation. As OP states it is for his personal portfolio. Employers may see it, but they are by not the same thing as clients.

comment What is the best way to trim long text?
This is a UX Q&A site. OP is not looking for implemention advice. The question as about what is better for the user. Are ellipsis a good User Experience? If so, why?

comment What is the best way to trim long text?
Why can't you wrap it? Is trimming it the only option? Because if so I'd suggest rethinking the content strategy and design the site around the actual content rather than shoehorning content into a layout that it cannot accomodate.

@DavidMulder That is a bit of a spurious comment. If you can find an answer of mine where the question explicitly asks for a reason for something existing and I have answered with just a 'perhaps its because of X' with no evidence then you may have a point. I may well have done so, but not to my knowledge.

comment How should multiple buttons wrap on different responsive breakpoints?
This is not exactly an answer, (hence writing as a comment) but I don't think you've left anywhere near enough vertical space there for people with fat fingers on their tablets.

That's not really what this site is for. We're here to solve specific UX problems, not provide lots of links, aggregator style. Please take the [tour] shot more advice and we look forward to future questions from you.

comment Primarily opinion based questions?
@DavidMulder It is opinion based because it is the posters opinion that these things are the reason keyboards are still the primary input tool. The answers are all lists of things that are good about keyboards, but nowhere do they give evidence that those things are the reasons.

comment What Is Your Expert Experience regarding Severity Ratings in Heuristic Evaluation or Expert Review?
This reads more like a questionnaire requesting lots of peoples responses, rather than a question you are looking for a specific response to. This is a Question and Answer site, not a discussion forum. Can you rephrase it so that it is less of a questionnaire?

comment Primarily opinion based questions?
@CharlesWesley In that case the question should be amended. It is written purely from a 'hmm this is weird, what's up with that?' viewpoint. I'm sure some information around that topic is interesting and of use, but the way it is written it's not really a useful post (just a popular bikeshed one).

comment Matching Navigation Names to Page Titles?
Well to be pedantic here, 'Checkout' is the noun, as in the place where you pay. Whereas 'check out' is the verb - you are completing a 'check out'. So you check out at the checkout.

Buttons are for actions though, not navigation (well, traditionally speaking anyway).
