Survey

INTRODUCTION:

I am conducting a survey about software features in modern software.
I have chosen Google Chrome for this study for several reasons:
- It is cross platform, used by a variety of users on many platforms
- It is becoming quite popular
- It is modern and powerful
- It is a web browser which represents how we use computers most these days

In order to be thorough, relevent, and unbiased, I used only features which I found in news articles about Google Chrome releases.

SURVEY:

Please answer the following questions HONESTLY, your answers will be submitted anonymously.
Each question asks about one of Google Chrome's features, select the answer which is most true for you.
Remember, I am collecting statistics, not judging your computer skills, so be honest.
