Comments on: Mozilla Wants to Know Your Vision of the future of Web http://dailyapps.net/mozilla-wants-to-know-your-vision-of-the-future-of-web/ An app a day, keeps the boredom away...

Lean left goes back to the previous page. Nodding twice answers the dialogs highlighted choice. Etc.

I want the focus of the page to follow my eyes as they scan the page.

Naturally, I want voice recognition available for email, ordering online or completing surveys like this one.

I’m sorry Kenneth Fleisher fails to see the benefits, only the areas that could, if not managed properly, cause a violation of his privacy. I have a very visual memory so my physical office environment tends to be untidy because I remember where things are by what is near (until my wife ‘tidies up’). All three of the concepts above would work for me. The mobile concept does not have to be restricted to mobile but would work on the desktop. We do however also have to conceptualize the same environment for those who are verbally, literally or numerically orientated. The balance of customizing should alway allow for the range of users. Alternatively different tools for the different types of user. For instance a journalist or secretary usually hates using a mouse, it just slows them down, they remember lots of short cuts and create many macros. Many casual users like using the mouse and would probably take well to touch screens that are more visually orientated because they have less to remember and will tend to interact with visual clues.
The future of the UI has several elements to evolve; control by the user, confidence of the user, including security confidence, presentation flexibility, that is how to change the visuals depending on the task in hand, search an grouping of results with historical actions and information.
The other concept to get to grips with is the separation of data and applications. I like all my data to be local and under my control, not on someone else’s storage facility perhaps in another country where I have no control over who can see it; while I have no problem if the application is running from some server in China, USA or UK where I live as long as the data can only be viewed under UK law that I have some say in (little though that may be) because it is where I choose to live. I think that the current move towards ‘Cloud Computing’ is flawed and and relying on the same abdication of responsibility by CEO’s as outsourcing of IT in general, brought about by a lack of understanding.

Even more so with the increase in travel costs. Personal use would be of good value as well. As many of us have friends many miles away. Bandwidth looks like it will be a problem for those of us who do not have Cable available in our areas. Looking forward to BETA!

If that were presented as an alternative to what I now get with Firefox or with Internet Explorer 6.0, I’d run from it back to what I now have, and do so with relief. I’m also glad that I do not have a microphone or Webcam connected to my computer. Privacy is important to me. What you presented seems to require a violation of that sanctity. For my future, what I want most is utter reliability. Skip the bells, whistles, and falderal, and don’t waste my bandwidth.

I like to mess with things, to move objects around on a screen. I smile when I see ripple effects on the Mac’s dashboard when I add a widget for example, or when I mess with effects in Ubuntu via Compiz Fusion.

Having an aesthetically pleasing browser that attempts to keep your information organized such as a file or folder, while giving the user something tactile to move around, that integrates with your surroundings, is an awesome idea. I like the idea of using your hands to use computers, not your mind.
