comment What should internal “home pages” and “index pages” be called?
I don’t understand why you think it is too vague; Are you seriously going to give a different label to each subsequent deep linked page? They will just be subpages. The hierarchy here is the hang off ‘hub.’ Not advised, but if there were further deep pages under the ‘Entries page,’ and perhaps deeper again off of those pages. Naming each of those levels does not scale well. Keep it simple.

comment What should internal “home pages” and “index pages” be called?
The issue I have with this is that a page can be split up into sections (which is why we have a section tag in HTML5), so section to me is a very granular page level term which won’t translate without causing confusion to the hierarchical structure.

comment What should internal “home pages” and “index pages” be called?
No, I don’t believe it does. A hub is a central focal point, a place where all of the jumping off points for relevant pages within that particular section are held within a single interface.

Aye, I normally rate this on easy, medium, hard, assist or fail. I would be interested to hear you expand upon your measure of this performance criteria.

@BenBrocka I am looking for ideas from both sides of the coin. Results don’t have to be quantitative, I am looking for empirical measures after all. I will certainly post in Cog. Psych. too though, thanks.

comment Can you characterize a user by their choice of Internet browser?
@Rahul I don’t think the answer is not useful, and I disagree about your comment on the test being biased by putting the browser in full-screen mode. The point is you are testing the interface of the website or application within the browser, the test is not about the browser itself.

comment How do I make it obvious that Autocomplete suggestions are not mandatory?
Furthermore, if there is no limit to the amount of Twitter IDs you want to search on and add, you could add a button that allows the user to add additional batches of 5? Once button is activated, further 5 fields are added to the bottom.

comment Can you characterize a user by their choice of Internet browser?
I just had a further thought. Microsoft have had to recently provide a screen with Internet Explorer to inform the user that other browsers are available tomshardware.com/news/Microsoft-browser-ballot-EU,9705.html — this may have migrated some users over to other browser vendors.
