User Experience

Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team


  • A cloud-based Windows is in the works [1] with potentially different revenue models for Microsoft [2] along with universal Windows apps. [3] Microsoft has also been accepting input about the return of an authentic Start button. [4]
  • Browser add-ons made news in the context of Heartbleed with an extension for Chrome [5] and for Firefox [6] automating the check for sites with Heartbleed vulnerability. Safari and Internet Explorer lacked these add-ons.
  • Recent Chrome updates [7] include an onscreen keyboard, side-docking and sticky keys, suggesting potential use in touchscreen Chromebooks or Chrome tablets.
