Designing Google Chrome
Pursuing a philosophy of "content, not chrome," the Google Chrome team sought to design a window manager for the web, a browser that would recede into the background and elevate web pages, applications, and entertainment to first-class citizens on the modern desktop.
Glen will describe the process and reasoning behind this approach, the challenges and user research involved, where Chrome is going, and how you can get involved.
Glen Murphy is Google Chrome's designer and an engineer on its front-end team. Prior to moving to California to work at Google, Glen bounced around Australia as a CS dropout, a dotcom-boom designer, a programmer of interactive installation artwork, an engineering lead, a Master of Design student, and a suit-wearing enterprise software consultant."
