What was the thinking behind making the book marks bigger on resizing the window instead of showing more bookmarks of the same size? I mean obviously to see the stuff better, but usually when I or anyone maximises the screen they expect to *see* more stuff.
I think we do need to cap at some sane size though. If you have 500 bookmarks, that's a lot of tiles. It's overwhelming. Our user testing for Slingshot showed that anything larger than a 5x4 grid all the sudden became harder to browse. So I think it'd make sense to cap the grid at the same size here and then start paging.
I think there should be a distinction between bookmarks and speed dial like in Safari and Chrome, a person may have 500 bookmarks but only visit 20 sites regularly, so those 20 sites could be in a speed dial interface and the other bookmarks in a menu....
In which case paging seems over the top to me. Btw one feature that I love in the Safari Top Sites is the little blue folded page effect that appears when any of your top sites have been updated. Any chance of something similar being included in Midori.
Would there be a limit in the other direction (ie I have a 1080p monitor, and 9 screenshots (3x3) would be a ridiculous size, or more shots but taking all the space could seem overwhelming. What do you think?
This is cool, I did a youtube mock-up similar to this for Firefox Home Tab concept. I'd love having this in a scrollable view for all of my open tabs, I tend to open up a lot and this would be a really easy visual way of navigating them when I'm looking for something.
Ok, so say I have 6 tiles total (3x2 arrangement). 5 of these are pages I've added and I can click on them to go to a web page. 1 is the "Add Page" tile, so if I click that and add a new page, how do the tiles arrange themselves now?
