ps... and UI designed by the office team (maybe an IE ribbon bar?) and the icons designed by the Vista team (-minus the guy who likes purple
Isn't the ribbon bar to help surface most used functionality and make it more accessible because there's just SO MUCH functionality in Office? IE doesn't seem to have a ton of functionality compared to Office (as it shouldn't), so what would the need be for a ribbon bar?
* i moved this to it's own thread
Fake - quick sample of if IE used some type of ribbon.
(i think it could work...?)
main home screen - could look like anything - id place stuff like ie6 version (as there would be many icons and options to pick and choose from)
Tools - more graphical... (themes on right) *this is not final placement - just threw stuff in to show "bringing out options"
security - same thing - just more graphical. * menus would change on mouse-over - not click, so when you moved your hand away - it would automatically go back to home/browser
Video section - soapbox - after you log in it would show your page from then on
Photos - again it wouldnt be this page after logging in
Blog - it would be your blog - upload options and more could go on bar
Blog 2 - you could integrate windows live writer
Help - whatever - for idiots
and just to keep it in one thread - here's that other graphic from today - that shows having toolbars come out - or go anywhere.
(hey i never said this would be easy!
*edit - people could use flikr, or blogger or wordpress or whatever if they choose - but it would come default with all MS stuff...
PS - what do you want to see in IE8?
