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入搜索.. 但我还是很少用..甚至避免.. 通常打开搜索引擎网页..或者打开隐身模式再使用(隐身模式下用地址栏的搜索功能)… 因为希望地址栏的提示显示有效常用的列表…不希望一次相比下无关紧要的搜索内容列在列表内… (其他记录都挺有用..不想这样一次搜索把他们挤开或占一个位置..) 有时抓狂的是打错的内容..一条输错的搜索内容列在列表上很不养眼… 为此我会趁这是刚输错的搜索去历史记录里删了这条搜索记录… 如果搜索记录列表后有个X可以删掉这条记录就好了… 3. 我不太习惯Google页面上的常用应用集合小窗口(暂称为”窗口”)设计… 上下滚动后窗口大小改变..这个功能区域大小非固定..界面体验是先进的..但对我可能觉得添了一点凌乱的感觉… 页面共两页..滚动不是固定上下两个状态..(要么在第一页,要么在第二页)可以是介于中间的状态… 之前那个滚动条还是Windows内置的..不美观..现在改好了… 4.搜索引擎按了搜索框右边的语音搜索..返回时焦点没有恢复到搜索文本框… P.S. Chrome还是我最常用最喜欢的浏览器…

Why The Flat Design In My Opinion

之前一段时期很多东西都趋向于3D(自智能手机图形界面发展水平开始越来越高的时候,不是阿凡达那个时候的3D).. 图标什么的都做成凸起的3D.. (那时候)一个屏幕呈现的3D视觉效果很”Xuan”… 逐渐地..有点泛滥… 普遍的凸起圆角图标像小孩的积木一样显得有点幼稚… 只是有点..还是可以的… iPhone机身的设计就有这种变化… 再后来..聊聊iOS 7… 我没怎么用iOS系统..但我有些印象..希望不会有错… iOS 7与之前的iOS系统一些区别是出现同时有至少两个面的操作界面多了..原本也一直有呈现多个面的界面..这样就更有需要了… 比如原本的..背后是滚动界面..前面是虚拟键盘… 然后是控制中心..没有布满整个屏幕..模糊&半透明.. 这样扁平化的好处就是让多个面更清晰..能看清后面是一个整体的平面..前面也是… 而不会出现前后两个面..后面也有凸起的图标..而且程度不同..前面也是… 看起来会很凌乱..产生视觉疲劳… 就算只有一个界面..越来越繁多的操作控件..立体效果的形状,大小,位置各不同… 也会很凌乱… 另外是很多东西多趋向于科技感..但变得不那么友好… 之前的界面对小孩来说是不错的… 但人们对此的审美标准会越来越习惯&认同… 不管这些原因..直接看到一个扁平的图标也觉得是一种新的美的视觉体验…(大部分都)没有那么花哨..清晰简洁了…
