Web users judge sites in the blink of an eye

Hello all,

Good article on how quickly users 'judge' a website:

Some interesting research looking into how an impression can be made about a
website, in the first 50 milliseconds of viewing. Apparently the reason is
due to user's 'cognitive bias' and the need for user to feel their judgement
is correct.

User Analysis & Study

Hi Everyone,

We've been doing UI design and development by keeping users in mind but would like to do actual User Analysis & Study which involves the creation of personas, conducting interviews, creating reports and analyzing the same. Could you'll share with me as to how you do it at your organizations, etc.

This would be really help for us to prove a point where in we designers are not the users nor are the developers.

The docked shopping cart is clearly a "how" that has tremendous product value.
