Friday, January 30th, 2009>p>Alex Faaborg and Aza Raskin have been having some fun playing with a new design challenge at Mozilla, and it shows in their design review screen/pod/vidcasts.
The latest episode focuses on chromless browsing:
What would a browser look like if the Web was all there was? As the Web becomes even more ubiquitous, we’ll never have to leave it. Whether it’s on touch tables, giant wall-sized screens, mobile devices, or just our computers, exploring the interactions for browsing a windowless Web will become ever-more important in the next couple of years.
I really like how they use the video to not show talking heads, but instead add to their content.
As I was listening to them discuss the different between usability and discoverability it really resonated with me. Most of my favourite features are not discoverable at all. For example, I navigate tabs with Apple-1, Apple-9 etc.
But back to the topic at hand, imagine you are in full screen browsing mode, how would you get around? For me, I hope those Apple-# keys still work (tabs fade in when I hit apple?)
