- After clicking Download - Move the page down to the "Extract instructions" ... I saw my user struggle with what to do with the program after download. They just assumed you double-click whatever is downloaded.
- A primary search result - Currently the basic search just grabs any keyword and lists it by the last time it was updated, but a "primary" keyword would mean that typing in Firefox would go to the Firefox entry, with entries that just mention Firefox coming after. This would especially help with our more generically named programs like Types and Autoruns. For simplicity, I'd suggest only one primary keyword or key phrase per entry, e.g. PDFXChange would only apply to one of our entries, probably the "Editor" version, the other would be "PDFXChange Viewer".
- Google custom search my user didn't see this under Detailed Search when trying to find a program so we might reformat that somehow, perhaps just making the text bold.
- Popular searches - My user hovered over this area for a while, I think just because of it's location and list of keywords.
- User noted that our site was very text heavy but that its not necessarily a bad thing, just a lot of info. We might consider hiding some elements in the regular database listing like Stealth, Unicode support, License, and Similar/alternative apps. They could hide in the regular listing (what shows up on the front page) or appear if you click "more info".
As someone who tends to be extra verbose in my entry edits, I took this as an indication that I should try to write shorter entries.
- Forums - They didn't go anywhere near that section, so either that didn't seem interesting from the front page, or they were looking for something more official. Unclear.
