    pretty certain the address bar already functions as search / address...

    It definitely does, but then why do we have an additional search bar?

  3. Reconfine 80 months ago | reply

    for other search engines i guess...
    in my dream os, you have some sort of spotlight, addressbar, terminal, ubiquity hybrid bar that does everything.
    I call it the godbar(tm)

    Confusing. I like it when you click on an icon then you have surrounding related web sites that branch off.

    the original BIG disadvantage with the single commandline, is having... a single commandline and then whatever that commandline is used for is busy when it's being "used" the new method of having multiple smart commandlines per application (addresss bar, quicksilver/launchy, searchbar) is actually the ideal way to do powerful operations that are customized per program. just imagine if every program had a smart auto-completing commandline with history and a fast shortcut.

    this can also happen with something like quicksilver, if it is more aware of individual program's toolbars and options, although being a PC user I'm not sure 100% if it is or isnt.

    also an interesting idea for history display, and it could separate into tabs pretty easily and show how LONG each tab was open (so a gmail tab that stays open over several days might show as a long horizontal line in the history display, while a popup would only show as a very slim line in a history and therefore barely noticeable.
