Improving on the Browser

from the why-bother? dept

A story in Forbes about people trying to create a better browser metaphor. I understand their complaints about the limitations and problems with current browsing, but let’s face it: browsing today is simple and most people understand it. Most of these alternate solutions may be cool, but they’re a lot more complex and confusing.

New broswer ideas?

I love MSIE5 w/ autoForms…..very cool.

I would like to see ‘on the fly frames’, where I can say poof, and my screen splits into two different frames….and be able to surf both at the same….time, not as in horz. tile, just one browser, such as Tabs. Also, would be nice to have floating location bar….when full screening.

yah. ie5 rocks.. there’s an add-on called “quick search” that absolutely rocks.. with it, you can type “y techdirt”, for example, and it will automatically spawn a search on yahoo for “techdirt” — and the best part is that you can create your own quick search strings..
