Have you shared your thoughts on IPFS GUI Tools?

In order to help prioritize future improvements to IPFS tooling and interfaces, we’d appreciate learning more about how the IPFS Desktop app and the in-browser IPFS GUI (also known as Web UI) fit into your overall workflow. This survey should take no more than 5 minutes, and will make a big difference—so thank you in advance for your time!
