CROHack 41 – We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are. So be careful not to disturb your test with your own perspective.

CROHack 48 – What has worked in the past does not necessarily work in the future.

CROHack 49 – Consider external factors in all your testing,

CROHack 50 – A test resulted with credit card Icons converted better on mobile than desktop
