I've just written a huge article on the 4 years of data from the main Australian banking website (specifically their home pages). Enjoy!

"XMLHttpRequest, WebSockets, and EventSource are now blocked by default in a mixed context (in Chrome), just like scripts. WebSocket's behavior changed in time for Chrome 37, XMLHttpRequest and EventSource are currently targeting Chrome 38."

This behavior is consistent with Firefox and IE. For more details:  http://bit.ly/1mdYibu.

Mike Hudson commented on a post on Blogger.
Massive study and write up +Dan Petrovic but two things jumped out at me that you could consider for Part 2:
- Your analysis is on your own brand and brand usage and engagement which I think you would agree is skewed away from the middle of the audience/user distribution curve of Google+ - specifically marketing savvy biased. I understand that this is why you have so much data to analyse, but had the same study been with a generic or common-brand and audience (even though you touched on this with +Hilton Hotels & Resorts ) I wonder if the results and/or findings would be the same?
- I was hoping for a summary, or a TL;DR - even some sub-headings with a jump-menu to make the digestion simpler - to be honest I've read it twice and have come away thinking that you know a lot, but i'm none the wiser :)

I hope you appreciate the feedback.

You might not like it, or you may be a fan - gone are the underlines for links in Google's search results (joining Wikipedia in that approach), increased font sizes, and ads that have no background color disambiguation.
You may have noticed that Google Search on desktop looks a little different today.

Towards the end of last year we launched some pretty big design improvements for Search on mobile and tablet devices (mobile first! :-). Today we've carried over several of those changes to the desktop experience.

We've increased the size of result titles, removed the underlines, and evened out all the line heights. This improves readability and creates an overall cleaner look. We've also brought over our new ad labels from mobile, making the multi-device experience more consistent.

Improving consistency in design across platforms makes it easier for people to use Google Search across devices and it makes it easier for us to develop and ship improvements across the board.
