Uservoice for Opera

  • Hi there,

    I love the Uservoice portal. I think it is a great way to submit feedback and see status updates as well as prioritise tasks.

    I think it would be great if Opera would also have a Uservoice feedback portal in order to make submitting feedback more sufficient.

  • You can actually speak to some browsers and get a response?

  • @concretable I think I cant quite follow you. Who do you mean by "browsers"?

  • Maybe I misunderstood. Verbal feedback directly to a person was meant?

  • @concretable well, it is possible to comment on topics, however functionality is rather limited compared to a full-fledged forum. Uservoice's advantage lies with being able to vote for ideas and therefore making it possible to prioritise tasks

  • +1, I agree, this would help make a better browser and it would be easier to give suggestions

  • Hmm, why use Uservoice when you have a blog and a forum and can get (better most probably) feedback on them?

  • @leocg Several reasons (from my personal experience at least):

    1. From my experience forums often do a rather poor job of preventing duplicates.
    2. Forums can be intimidating / too much of a hassle to new users / people that have hardly used a forum
    3. A forum has not the necessary features to determine actual user demand and therefore can only somewhat help to prioritise tasks
    4. Forums often require someone to actually write something, leaving out the large amount of lurkers on the internet
    5. The search is most of the times not as good

    Whilst forums might be better for discussing things, when it comes to uncomplicated feedback, Uservoice (or a similar system) are far superior.

    A lot of tech-giants use it. Microsoft uses it for almost every single one of their products (though they started implementing their own version of such a system in windows, namely the "feedback hub" or something along those lines): OneDrive, Xbox, Xbox Music, Visual Studio, Cortana.

    Adobe uses it for their new experience design application. And for the services I have used it has been quite great.
