Metro Browser Mock Up Detail by rajadain Metro Browser Mock Up Detail by rajadain
Comments and discussions are welcome. I do not plan to make something out of this, but hope that these points ring bells with those who will.

UPDATE: Since this is the more visited deviation and not the original one, I'm including all details here as well.

This is a sample mock-up containing the essential elements that I feel a true Metro Browser should have. It tries to be minimal yet have all required functionality. It tries to on-demand and reactive rather than always-on and proactive. It tries to be as invisible as it can, while trying to bring out the web (also a goal of Google Chrome).

Inspiration from :iconvinceranda: [link] and :iconclindhartsen:

UPDATE 2: :iconclindhartsen: has created a Metro Browser mock up as well. Check it out here: [link]

Why can't real browsers look this good?

This is a little old now, and some modern browsers have embraced many of these concepts. But I'm glad you liked it!

I agree. The tabs were the weakest part, and I have to revise them. I'll check the Win8 preview again for inspiration.

I... I... I can not explain how perfect this is... with your permission, may I please use this as a design for my browser application? This is just absolutely perfect.

Sure. I'd like it if you credit me (somewhere...) but you don't HAVE to. If you can pull it off, share it! I'll be impressed :)

I will love to work on it, I will be sure to credit you. For now, I am working on a mockup seeing some other METRO like designs.
