Firefox Survey

rwerner
All,

First, to introduce myself, I'm a product management intern at Mozilla
and will be working with Sherman Dickman this summer.  I'm forming a
user panel to gather information to help guide the next Firefox
generation.

The following is the initial profile survey that I'm planning to deploy
online at the beginning of next week.  Survey participants will opt
into taking the survey via the Firefox download and Spread Firefox
sites. We will then narrow down the respondents into a user panel.  The
goal is to develop a panel with a broad range of use patterns rather
than represent a cross section of the current firefox or internet
users. We will also use some of the information to cross tab against
future responses.

Please give me any feedback by Monday (7/17) afternoon as we are
planning to launch the survey at the beginning of this week.


Thanks!

Rachel

I use SeaMonkey. It's sad to see that mozilla.org won't even admit to
the existance of Mozilla Suite, Camino, and SeaMonkey all of which have
close ties to mozilla, and in one case is actually a mozilla product.

This seems to leave out developers of software (either OSS or not) that
aren't directly related to the web.

No mention of Mozilla calendar projects such as Sunbird, Lightning, etc.
here? http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/

We could list all of these, but realistically you design a survey  
like this by listing by market share.  We could list Epiphany, K-
Meleon, Flock, and any number of other alternative browsers, but for  
the sample size we're targeting, the odds are really low that we'd  
get enough to make it worth comparing results.

That's again pretty much an edge case.  I'd say out of a thousand  
people, you might get one or two.

IRC is again pretty geeky and below most people's radar.

This survey is primarily targeted towards end users, but we thought  
it was important to distinguish between power users and Web  
professionals.  We may wish to host a set of developer surveys in the  
future, but that would be a separate effort with developer-focused  
questions.

Handful of suggestions, see within...  I attempted to look at this
quickly (as a normal person would) and point out anything that didn't
seem right.

P.S: I'm a survey addict, having taken a ton of polls, simply because I
find it interesting to find out what they want to know (and how they
phrase questions to get that info)... so that bares some influence on
what I saw.

May want an option between 15 and 40.  That's a pretty large threshold.
If you care about the diff between 1-5 and 5-15, you likely care 16 or 40.

Ranges may be better here... since most don't know exactly, but 1-3,
3-5, 6, 7... one of those should just sound right.  Hard to give a
finite number of a guesstimate.  Just make sure to include 5 somehow
(likely 3-5, or 4-5), since that's a business week.

Where does social networking aka myspace fit in?  I'd either clarify the
wording of one of those, or add it in, since it's popular, and not
obvious at initial glance.  It's somewhat popular right now.  Especially
in the young adult demographic, who will likely be taking this survey.

I'd move this up with the 'how often do you use the internet..." type
questions up above, though perhaps that's just me.

I'd add in "Unemployed and not looking for work", and "Unemployed and
actively looking for work".  This is what others like Harris Interactive
do for their polls.

Also, any advice as to becoming Gainfully unemployed for the long term
would be appreciated.  I'm looking to move in that direction.

True, but you could at least list projects you're related to, and if you
don't get enough entries from a particular project just group them all
under "Other" when you produce the results.

If you were asking random people in the street, you're probably right.
If I understand correctly, we're talking about Spreadfirefox users and
people going to mozilla.com to download Firefox, and amongst those the
ones that have enough of an interest to answer a survey. That group is
going to contain more geeks than the general population.

On the other hand, if you're trying to build a group of Firefox users from
different categories, then distinguishing different types of geek may not
be that important, as there's lots of geek input from other sources...

Rachel,

Do we plan to make this a global survey or just English-language?

If we wanted to have non-English survey participants, we would need  
time for localization.

Expect the "wireless browsers" listed below should also appear here.
Some people don't live at a desk.

Not clear where Video Chat/video calling fits in, which AIM and iChat
both provide, but it's more like voice rather than messages.

Shouldn't Thunderbird be listed under RSS and Blog readers?

I found this question ambiguous.  Different people will interpret it
differently, so the results will not be reliable.

"most often" vs. "spend the most time doing" --- if I only check mail
once a day but spend an hour doing it, yet check stock news three times
a day for 5 minutes a time, which are you interested in?

"most often" vs. "check all that apply" --- what criteria should I use
for "all that apply"?  Just the one "most often" item, or two if they
are tied?  Or all that I use "often", for some notion of "often" of my
own choosing?

A better approach would to give a specific frequency threshold or a
specific duration threshold, like one of the following:

Frequency-based:
 > Which of the following activities do you do on the web at least once
a month on average? (check all that apply)

Duration-based:
 > On which of the following activities do you spend 60 minutes or more
total per month on average?  (check all that apply)

Either frequency-based or duration-based:
 > Which of the following activities do you either (a) do on the web at
least twice a month on average, or (b) spend at least 60 minutes per
month total on average?  (check all that apply)

(Note that on-line banking will be a once-a-month activity for many
people, so I used that as the minimum frequency.  Taxes might be a once
or 4 times a year activity, so frequency could go lower.)

Not clear what "gainfully unemployed" means -- sounds like an oxymoron
which different people may interpret differently, such as earning money
without being employed (investor, property owner, etc.), or contributing
gains to society without being employed (volunteer work), or gaining
property without being employed or invested (beachcomber, or
robber/thief).

I wonder if it makes sense to separately list voluntary or non-paid
organizational relationships, especially given that Mozilla is largely
by volunteers, and might provide insight how other volunteer groups use
technology.

I'm surprised there aren't more demographic questions, such as about
where the respondent lives.  (EU, US, IN, AU, JP, etc.)  Or do you
expect to determine that from their IP address?  (If so, might
multinational company firewalls get in the way?)


Hope this helps.

Tthe "e.g." examples are simply to guide survey respondents in
answering the questions, and they're not response options themselves.
We put the examples in to differentiate stand-alone email clients (as a
group) from email services such as Hotmail or Gmail.

Probably, but in the last few stats I've seen, Safari and Netscape still
had less market share than Mozilla suite...

If that was the intention, I suggest saying that explicitly. I believe
Gmail fits the description of an e-mail 'networked application' for
the less-technical users.

Initially the surveys will be English only (to limit scope creep for a
summer intern project).  We'll most likely be expanding this to include
additional languages in the future.

Seamonkey/Mozilla Suite has more market share than Netscape everywhere
in the world, in many countries people who came to the internet in the
last five years never heard of netscape because it never was available
in their language. Netscape is only a US-only brand today.

I suggest that your put an icon next to the name of the browser, many
people will recognize, the blue E but don't knwow it's IE, actually, I
would put a last choice "I don't know"

emule, never heard of an end-user using bittorent

RIM/Blackberry isn't a browser, it's a device. Opera is probably the
world leading embedded browser but is not in your list, AFAIK minimo
doesn't ship with an existing device, end-users are unlikely to know it.

Actually, I would reword it as 'I surf with a mobile device (blackberry,
mobile phone...)'

In all the recent stats I've seen, Safari has a larger share than
anything except IE and Firefox. However, Mozilla is often listed as
having a larger share than Opera and Netscape
<http://www.adtech.info/en/pr-06-5.html>. Additionally, any other
browsers I can think of in the Other category have far less share than
the listed browsers in the stats I've seen. Mozilla/SeaMonkey should go
on the list if Netscape and Opera are on it.
