Recommendation? Eye Tracking Device for UsabilityTest

Hi Shima,

I was in your same situation about a year ago. First thing I would do
is decide what type of system you want (Headset, Chinrest, or Monitor)
each of them has their pros and cons.

Once you decide that, you'll narrow your search drastically. We decided
to go with a monitor base system (Where everything is built into or
around the monitor).

Recommendation? Eye Tracking Device for Usability Test


We are researching about possibly purchasing eye tracking devices
(hardware and software) for usability tests. Any information about the following (or other
related information) is really appreciated:

- What are some of the companies you might recommend that are
selling these devices?

- What is the average cost?

- How easy or difficult is it to set up and use the device?

Thank you,

Finding fabulous fares is fun.

URL question

I am working on a complex application which has a very basic content
management system as one of its components.

Within this component, it's possible to change the titles of these pages
or move them around within a 3 level hierarchy. Currently, the URLs to
these pages reflect the names and hierarchy of these pages. For example
I have a page titled "My workspace" and then a child page to this titled
"Day to day tasks".
