Midori URL Bar by DanRabbit Midori URL Bar by DanRabbit
Having a think about Midori's URL bar.

The paste icon is for an existing Midori feature called Paste-n-Go. You click that icon to paste whatever is in the clipboard and go :)


Updated a little bit to take into account some of your suggestions :)

I wonder if the forward button is really needed. I only use the back button...

I just think that that red bar is a little bit annoying!

It should be! It means you are browsing an insecure website.

Ah, you beat me to it. I really need to start mocking up my ideas...

Using a white bg for the autocomplete "menu" looks better/makes the text look more visible/allows diff formatting (partitally transparent, etc.) Keep the white menu! I'd move the grey pagetitle to after the url (" <grey>It's Here - elementary OS</grey>") When the window is maximized (and it is 99% of the time), you'll have to look wayyy over to the right to see it, also when things are that far apart it's hard to distinguish which entry on the left corresponds to the entry on the the right, etc. Also, use autofill or whatever it's called: like Chrome, highlight the first entry in the suggestions and add the rest of the url/suggestion to the entry. (URL bar: "elemen<grey></grey>") This way, I can type "ele" and press enter to get to, if it's my most visited site that begins with that. (Super fast :)) I'd also allow autocompleting the page titles (I type "disc," URL bar: " <bold, also dark grey>disc<bold, dark grey><grey>over</grey>") This means making the "unmatched" parts of suggestions un-bolded, and the matched parts bolded. Also, load search engine (google) results into the suggestions: it's super convenient and saves time (usually the site I want is in the first ~4 search results.) Adding on to that last sentence, "search with ..." should be the first result for a query that doesn't match pages in your history/bookmarks, not the last result. I can't think of a time when I've entered a non-history/bookmark query and I didn't want to for search it.

Those added toolbar icons get me to another subject. I'm really leaning towards monochrome toolbars. When you have a few toolbar icons (like here) color isn't needed to distinguish between buttons; shapes are sufficient. Also, it reduces visual noise/clutter, and gives the focus to the content. Color should be used as an effective indicator, (monochrome) panel icons show this very well; adding color to everything subtracts from that. The only real (visual) issue is that it'd make the window controls look odd, but maybe it could be done so that doesn't happen? Or maybe it's just me :)

I was really trying to keep this comment short... :P

Should the http padlock be green? That's insecure, over the wire submission of clear text http isn't it.
DanRabbit Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
oops, typo. that should read https of course.
