Right but when I make payments, I never "click" the link or scan the QR code because of the possibility of an XSS attack or malware that alters the url fed to my bitcoin client.

I copy the amount and address into a text editor, verify that they match (and that the payment makes sense)

Then I initiate the payment, make sure the address matches, and enter the amount.

That's where a mistake can happen.

If the item costs 0.5 BTC and my client is in mBTC then it is possible that instead of entering 500 mBTC I enter 50 mBTC or 5000 mBTC.

If the units are the same however, it is easier to visually see that amount.

-=-

Yes I know the address could potentially be altered on the web page itself by an XSS attack, it would be beautiful if more sites used CSP to protect against that, and it also would be beautiful if payment addresses could be pre-generated and added to DNS especially with DNSSEC so that their validity could be verified the same way a DNSBL or DNSWL works with spam filtering.

But anyway, since I cut and paste the amount into a text editor and then cut and paste the amount into my client, it is less mistake prone if both use the same units.

I'm prefer using BTC instead of mBTC because i think using BTC is more easier than mBTC. and people around the world more know about BTC instead mBTC.

...

that is the problem though. you want to see mBTC another person wants to see bits instead of all these and some other person comes along and wants to see satoshi instead of all these.

so to solve this the website have to either show all the desirable units to satisfy all of their customers or they can use the decimal with standard bitcoin (0.5 BTC) so nobody can complain.

I don't mind decimals and like both mBTC and Satoshi.  With time you get used to all of it.

I love Bitcoin

I don't know about you guys, but more and more often I find myself dealing with numbers like 0.004 BTC, 0.05 BTC, etc. in everyday transactions. I hate decimals and I think most of you are in the same boat as me. Our brain works much better with whole numbers. Given that 1 mBTC is in the same order of magnitude as 1 USD, why don't we start measuring our transactions in mBTC?
some forum and site also use mBTC for bitcoin transaction,and i comfort with that,but some exchange never use that,and its being problem for me,so i often use decimal than use mBTC.

I prefer using bits. Xapo uses bits. In my Electrum wallet I have chosen bits for my currency format. But with future perspective I wish everyone will use satoshi as a unit for bitcoin. If exchanges starts their trading with satoshi, that would boost bitcoin price for sure.

Come on, decimals are not that hard. It's just a simple calculation to find out the value of your coins. It hasn't bothered me at all. On the contrary, it always makes me anxious to see all those zeros become a whole 1 BTC.

Not that hard but also not difficult to make a simple mistake in the head, which is why whenever doing anything scientific, you standardize on the unit to be used and if you use units different than the standard your field had chosen you better have a damn good justification.
