Confused about using my real name or nickname on the web

I’ve been using TangoChen as my nickname on the web for years.
The name I like to use years ago turns out to be somewhat informal now…

“Tango” in my name doesn’t actually mean anything, I can’t dance Tango.

我的Chrome/Google.com用户体验建议

一些习惯..也不多..可能暂时忘了一些..

1.
Chrome的默认首页改为8个选项卡上一搜索引擎文本框后..用起来总感觉有点不妥…
文本框在窗口中央..用户视线先聚焦在此..一输入文本就跳到上方的地址栏…
这样做的目的大概是为了说明地址栏已经有搜索框的功能…
但一瞬间的Focus转移在体验上感觉有点欠缺…
我要这样做的话..可能会做一个矩形…一般截图功能可能会用到的半透明闪动的框…
从窗口中央的文本框在短时间内逐渐移动缩放到上方的搜索框…
告诉用户这个时候焦点做了转移…

2.
地址栏有搜索引擎的功能..直接敲击要搜索的内容就能进 … Read more
