- with touchscreens, you wouldn't need anymore the back & forward buttons, you can remove them. You just swipe to the left or right on the screen to go back & forward. - remove the X-on the tabs, a double click closes the tab - I would also place the adress bar on top, this way you can slide the thumbnails of the webpages to the star-button and instantly make a favourite/bookmark (shorter distance to slide) - mmm... an autohide function on the tabs would be awesome too, to free up more space on your screen
Thanks, I guess I would prefer it to be truer to non metro UI on PCs and different to what it would be on touch devices. But I'm sure the folks over at Microsoft have thought about this more than I have.
That's exactly what I was about to say lol. Yea, they're pushing Metro as a desktop platform too, but it's really meant for touch input devices. I find on my Windows Phone, having the URL bar at the bottom makes it a lot easier to browse the web. I don't have to reach all the way up, then all the way down to type. You just stay right at the bottom.
