Haiku UI idea
To be honest, I do not like the look of the Haiku alpha release.
However, I think that this project has the opportunity to do something truly different
and ground-breaking with its UI.
My idea is rather complicated to explain, and I am not a good artist. So bear with me.
The tab at the top of windows is really interesting visually, but what if the tab were movable. I think a tab that was able to move horizontally across the top of a window could change the way we layer windows on a desktop.
Also, after having the idea of a movable tab I had the thought that a tabs location with respect to the windows edge could have an affect on what menu options are available at the top of the window.
I had the thought that the menu bar at the top of windows would disappear, and only appear as the mouse was moved close to them. This would remove menu options from windows and make the content fill more of a window.
That was my idea. If anyone is inspired by it please draw something up and show it to us.
