I imagine this might be a tough one, but you IxDAers never fail me, so
Can anyone think of any sites that are currently offering two versions
of a particular *feature*, classic and beta?
To be clear, I'm NOT looking for:
- brand new sites that are still in beta testing mode
- existing sites that have an entire beta replacement site to try out
(e.g. Gmail's Older Version / Newer Version)
Instead I'm looking for sites that have, say, two different searches
available - their old search, and a new search that they're testing. The
feature doesn't have to be a search - any sort of discrete tool WITHIN a
website will do.
I'm just trying to pick up ideas of how to position such a beta, and how
to transition people in and out of it. It seems easy but my client has
some unusual limitations, so I'm in idea-gathering mode.
