Remove browser address entry expander?
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:35:36 EDT
Current design of the browser toolbar have the entry hidden by default AFAIK to
discourage people to use addresses (to use shared links and search instead).
Diana feel this needlessly complicated...
Bryan, what do you think?
(more details in the following chat)
marco__ so, you can hide/show the address entry (and the go button when I add
it), by clicking on the >> icon we have there now
marco__ I need something better than a >> :)
dfong but why would you need to hide/show the address?
marco__ the address is hidden by default because we don't want childs to use
addresses as the usual way to open web sites...
marco__ sharing and search should be the normal way to open sites
marco__ though we need a way to allow them to use addresses, as an advanced feature
marco__ hence the need of the show/hide, sort of a disclosure triangle to hide
an advanced feature
dfong seems needlessly complicated...but ok
marco__ dunno that's seth idea I think, I don't have problems ridiscussing it
with Bryan etc...
dfong maybe ask bryan...i dunno...it just seems kinda weird to force this kind
* dfong shrug
marco__ let me just put this chat in an email, ok?
marco__ (to bryan/blizzard)
dfong i'll make you an expander button for now anyways
Hi, just a question from your friendly bugmaster -- is this bug still relevant for anything?
