Read Important GrayBit Update!
GrayBit, the online contrast accessibility testing tool I mentioned and described in a previous post, is now thirty days old. Happy Birthday to GrayBit. So, what happened over the course of its so far short life? Let’s see…
Testing of the v.05 Beta has gone well and the testing was vigorous. Often times there were more than twenty users on the site at the same time. During one peak moment with over 50 users online, we were logging over 30 conversions-per-minute. I was wow’d (I thought we had a bug until I realized how many people were online). Being linked from Zeldman.com really helped drive the needed testers our way (thank you Jeffrey Zeldman).
At the time of this entry, barring advertising stats, we experienced the following over this tool’s first thirty days:
- Total Page Views: 39,194
- Total Conversions: 14,963
- Total Unique Users: 6,868
We’re actually a week or two from the completion on version 1.0. After all, we can’t stay in Beta forever. Everything identified thus far has been addressed (if it could be addressed), Jona’s still trying to work out the GIF transparency issue and I have to do a couple more site tweaks and then we’re done.
If you’re interested, please check back, (or subscribe to my feed) as I will be announcing the version 1.0 launch right here as soon as it happens. We’ll ask that you come back to test it again to help us verify all’s in proper working order.
