Prototyping tool is looking for a new name

Dear IXDA list

You may already know RapidRabb.it: it is a real time collaborative
online platform which enables individuals and teams to create
interactive web and software prototypes fast and easily, and to test,
discuss and optimize them.

Now, we are looking for a new name. Although we liked our current name
very much, it comes with some disadvantages that lead to this
decision: especially when talking on the phone, people do not
understand the name and the writing. In addition, some asked us
whether we are an Italy-based company, which we are not.

Assumptions about users (blue collar=inexperienced?)

We posted an internal release about not creating paper user guides for
our Web sites, but creating better instructional content/cleaner process
on the actual site pages. Received this from an internal employee today
about a specific member group (we're a health insurance company) using
our member Web site:
"Their [automotive parts manufacturer] blue-collar work force may not
have home access to a PC and when at work, they rarely (if ever) use the

Card Sorting with Nested Groups

We're working on the next release of our card sorting analysis software, SynCaps V3 and need a few sites to try out the new 'nested groups' feature on face-to-face, paper-based projects. This allows the kind of hierarchical sorting that many want to do but that few tools support, for example:

Vegetables (group level 1)
-Root Vegetables (group level 2)
--Potatoes (group level 3)
---White Potatoes (item)
---Sweet Potatoes (item)

and so on.

"carpet" of bookmarks and sessions ("inside" tabs and windows)

This may be purely linguistical, but what are exactly sessions? This is one
of the features in which Opera was unique. Each session is a group of web
pages, it can be auto-saved (useful after a crash and for consistency of
information) or it can be saved by users. But looking at it, why is a
session different from a group of webpages inside a "carpet" of the
bookmarks library? Isn't that redundant?

Firefox has a feature that (as of this writting) isn't implemented in Opera:
save all open webpages (the tabs in a window). Isn't this basically the same
as saving a session?
