Simplicity of Application Human Interface

SJC SJC Profile: SJC

Early this month when I first read about Google’s release of it’s “Chrome” browser my first thought was “Why do we need another browser?”.  I then pictured the Google page I now use as the home page on all of my systems, www.google.com.  It meets my standard for a “clean and simple” interface.  This in turn led me to investigating “Chrome” to find the answer.  I was pleasantly surprised I must admit.

Google also has posted an interesting comic book type presentation about its development which I found very interesting (…although a bit long and eventually too detailed for my interest).  This comic can be found here.

I was pleasantly surprised that once I installed the browser I was able to do a high percentage of the work I do from within a browser – all this from an initial public release of a new product — quite impressive I must say!

Perhaps its age, perhaps its my “artistic” flair, perhaps its that I do not like clutter either on my schedule, my computer desktop or my surroundings.  I must say I like what I’ve seen in Google Chrome – hopefully they will keep to their simplistic design as the product matures.
