I expect when canceling the edit of a comment to be asked something along the lines of "Are you sure you want to exit?" or "Are you finished editing?".
Pressing OK doesn't clear the form, it just cancels the comment editor (if you don't cancel it will stay open the next time you open that post). It's confusing the first few times, and also confusing whenever you forget to press any option and come back to that tab later. It's a weird user experience for sure.
I suggested via GitHub issue that the wording be changed.
Today this confirmation has been changed and is reflected on steemit.com

Screenshot of new box:
Steemit.com is the main front end used to use the steem blockchain. Even though there are dozen or so alternatives for accessing the blockchain, steemit is the main one. The official one I think. It might not be the shiniest interface, or most content consumption friendly, but it is the flagship of our steem navy. If someone can't get along with steemit, I suspect they will be less interested in trying other UI's, or adapting the site for continued use. It's these tiny cosmetic and thematic improvements that will help bring in new users, and keep them using the site. And it was acknowledged and fixed in less than a week, kudos to our brave developers :)
Even though it's a minor issue that was resolved quickly, I think it's a valuable contribution to the OS community and our dear steemit.
