Disregarding the Browser for a second, your presentation is spot on and I appreciate your attention to detail. Not everybody cares to implement cubic-bezier curves for a simple link-hover transition
How many people do you know that, when you look at their browser, they have an average of 47 tabs open. In 16 different windows. It happens. A lot.
The part I think it'll go wrong at, is that it's making you do most of the tab-keeping manually.
You'll have a rough time solving that by making them go out of their way. Making them switch "modes". Making them click anything extra.
So ... solve it for them!
We live in an age of AI. I think for bonus points, you could've delved deeper in how you could make this actually work by doing the segmenting for your users. Tagging should be fairly possible with the "work", "trip" and other segments you've mentioned.
My initial response when reading the headline was more along the lines of "YAY ANOTHER BROWSER!!1!11!!!1". Since you good people seem to have put a fair amount of effort into this concept, I figured we owed you better than a sarcastic karma grab ;)
On that topic; I feel your ideas have more legs when tacked onto an existing browser. Launching and maintaining a browser is ... rough. Remember. You're up against AT LEAST Google, Microsoft and Apple. So don't go running off to the bank for a startup loan just yet.
Cheers for sharing this. It's got cool ideas that could definitely work with a bit of tweaking :)
.edit: Edited, like, a billion times. For readability. And to show more that it does sound like an exciting idea. Stay awesome!
On your attaching to a browser comment, totally agree. There's a reason Opera killed off their own browser and started building off of Chrome years back.
This is really cool. The way we use browsers hasn't changed much since the early days. I'd put the concept up there with Desktop Neo so really well done to the guys who made it.
That history timeline is so good and we need that right now please!
I work with the student that made that. He is looking for an internship, and I'd strongly advise ANYONE to bring him for an interview.
Holy F**K this would change my life.
Amazing work guys! I've got the same idea the last two years, and I started with a survey to get some insights on how people use their browser but never had the time to finish my work. I'm happy to help.
Sign me up! I'm one of those awful people that has 100 different tabs open at any given point in the day haha
I love how this concept acknowledging that it is not about one page but about a network of pages open at a moment in time. The spaces + timeline looks like a good way to add structure and maybe replace bookmarks completely as well. Love it!
Would love to give this a try on my iPad. With that said, do you ever see this moving beyond iOS in support of other platforms (e.g., macOS)?
