Feedback Summary


Sentiment Report 19 went out last week. We've already received a ton of great feedback. If you have anything else, we'd love to hear about it.</br>

Beta feedback for Per Window Private Browsing and the new Download Manager look good. Both have roughly 4 star ratings. We will be running these studies again in Release shortly after launch. We should be able to use this information to create correlations in the future.
