New Web Browser Concept Design
Hey everyone, I've been working on a new browser concept design and here it is.
As I see it, Microsoft were right with their Internet Explorer 10 having no interface at all while browsing webpage. This was good and all, perfect for a tablet but the lack of a constant Tab Bar is a tad annoying. With this concept, the URL/Toolbar is removed and the Tab moved from the top to the left side and replaced with a Windows 7 task bar like interface.
As you can see, the interface is really clean, a nice Tab bar to the left leaving maximum reading space for the webpage. As most would know, the majority of webpages are designed to navigated up and down so this is why the tab bar is moved so that a full 1080 pixels (or what ever hight of your monitor) is given access to the webpage.
The Tabs are no longer displayed as text but as the icon/favicon of the webpage. When the tab is not in view the icon fades into the background and when in view it pops out.
A constant "new tab" button is showing and when clicked will bring up a new tab page and slide down one square
As for the forward/backward/refresh buttons, they are also hidden but come into view when you slide your mouse down to the URL button (called it URL because didn't know what icon should be used). This will also bring up the URL bar and a tool/menu icon.
So there you have it, this is my concept for what a web browser should look like. Extremely minimalistic compared to modern desktop browsers yet still extremely functional.
And sorry for the bad icons, i kinda rushed this :P
