Open issues/risks

  • Dao has suggested that we implement a separate URL entry widget instead of showing the toolbar.

Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

When using app tabs, we'd like to encourage hiding the URL and toolbar to leave more space for the web app — but still make it possible to enable them if you want. This setting should be remembered on a per-domain basis.

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

3. Dependencies


4. Requirements

  • When making a page into an app tab, the toolbar should disappear.
  • It should be possible to right-click the tab and turn the toolbar back on.
    • This setting should be remembered on a per-domain basis.
  • When using keyboard shortcuts to get to URL field or search field, it should be turned on for the duration of the interaction, then disappear again.
