What do I plan to do?

  • Continue brainstorming the ideas for future web browsers
  • Conduct 2 surveys to understand the pain point of using bookmarks and URL bar.
  • Conduct a survey to know how smart a web browser can go based on current user’s understanding of browsers.
  • 3 visualizations or static mock-ups of my favorite ideas

Feedbacks(from Mike):

1. Along with the previous sketches, do some visualizations.

2. For next stage, focus on 5 topics and develop sketches(Due next Tuesday):

  • tab management
  • subtle indication in awesome bar in terms of privacy (first step towards 1-click)
  • ability to filter awesome bar results for privacy (through right click)
  • Prism integration
  • Bookmark management

3. Continue brainstorming stage, find one topic you are interested in and develop a prototyping based on Flash(May use OpenGL).

Sketches:

I’ll upload the sketches later today.
