Open issues/risks

  • Too aggressive de-duplication
  • There might be sites using titles in ways we can't predict

Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

We don't show the full title bar in the browser anymore (except on a few platforms). When you have multiple pages from the same site open, they can often end up having the same text as well as the same favicon, making them hard to pick out. This is also a problem in Panorama. We'd like to do the same as other browsers do here, and strip the duplicate text in these cases.

This feature falls primarily in the Discover category (from the "Discover, Experience, and Connect" vision statement.)

Goal: Make web page titles more readable in situations where space is at a premium, like tabs and in Panorama.
