User experience
===============
XXX: Check the archives of tails-ux: https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/
- We designed a [[new download page|install/download_2]], to prepare for
the migration of our verification extension to *Web Extensions*. We
started [drawing sketchy
wireframes](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2017-September/003450.html),
then improved them incrementally after testing them on paper with
users, and finally [implemented the resulting prototype in
HTML](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-dev/2017-September/011694.html).
- We benchmarked [[open source web applications to survey our user
base|blueprint/survey_platform]]. [The best candidate is
*LimeSurvey*](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2017-September/003472.html)
and we will do a test deployment in October as part of a user research
on the use of *VeraCrypt*.
