- Rethink the basic way we interact with multiple web-pages (tabs) and the jump-off navigation point.
What Is This All About
See the presentation
- Tabs don’t scale.
- It’s time consuming to switch between tabs.
- We work in semantic groups; our browser don’t.
- Our tabs have no understanding of search. Only basic understanding of “apps”.
- Bookmarks are to heavy, tabs are too light. No metaphors for saving/sharing/viewing what we are seeing.
- No incentive to clean up.
- We spend 76% of time on first & last tab.
Goals / Use Cases
- Make switching between tabs easier
- Make grouping, saving, and managing tabs easier
- Productivity when you increase monitor size goes up by ~30% (recognition+spatial memory), bring this efficiency gain and ease of mind to tabs.
- Whole-sale replacement of tabs (by default)
- Slowing down tab switching (with gratuitous animations, etc)
- Being an alt-tab replacement
- Trying to encompass all of Ubiquity's use cases. Only interested in navigation and information retrieval.
- More detailed designs coming soon
