    I'd say I do the same, but that'd be weird, wouldn't it?

    But yeah - no signature set, I just manually punch it in:

    ps.: lovely website, enjoy the style, maybe a bit gratuitous with the borders, but that's about it!

    I remember hand-held scanners!

    Had a friend that grew up in a rich family, and they always had the "latest tech". They were also the first ones in the village (+-5000 people!) with dial-up :)

    My first version was probably 4 or 5. I'd messed around with others before that, but never at my own place or work, since I was still a kid and we always had dos/windows.

    Chrome vs Firefox. IE in the corner.

    Ditto - Chrome, but will switch back to FF soon.

    Used to be FF back before it became slow about 4 years ago?

    I always want the fastest out of all non-IE browsers.

    I consume a lot of video content and stilted performance is a dealbreaker to the point that it makes me wanna chuck my screen out the window.

    (I'm on Windows btw. Safari coulda been an option if I were on Mac.)

    It's funny how:

    • important this topic feels
    • little I feel I know of it
    • much I struggle with it when I open the bloody thing

    Other than basic analysis of bounce/exit/browser/os/conversions and some in-page analytics I don't get very far with the tool.

    The good news is that those are generally very important in determining whether something is effective or not.

    The bad news is that I feel there should be a lot more possible with it. Might be a UI issue.
