Conducting a survey about Chrome features
 
I am conducting a survey about features in Chrome.
I am not really considering the survey "live" yet, I just want to post it here so you guys can give me suggestions on what I might want to change in order to get the best results.

The survey is on my website, here: http://betteros.org/survey/survey.php

Just got done taking it for you.

I'm sorry. Earlier in my career I was in market research. Then I moved to the a$$ end of nowhere. I still miss market research.

1. For easier readability, consider black text on white.

2. "I would like to take a survey about software features in modern software." I understand what you mean, but the people taking the survey will be confused. How about. "I am conducting a survey ..."

3. Typo in question 8. Show "Home" buttom

4. It might be a giant pain for all the features that you have, but a small description of each feature would help casual Chrome users identify features of which they are aware or use, but don't think of in the terms you use. "tab stacking: the visual cue that more tabs are open than can be displayed."

5. Consider forcing column widths in the table. Some would argue that the unequal column width visually leads people to one response versus another.

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions. I made some changes accordingly, however, I didn't add a description for the features, that would be a significant amount of work. If I have enough free time soon I will see if I can add something like that in.

Yeah, I wouldn't add the descriptors either. Not for the sheer number that you have.
