It has been designed from the same concept as the mobile version. All the user interface element, icon, place and workflow are the same.
For the gesture navigation, it'll use the same gesture as the mobile UI version. In the desktop version, the gesture can be perform with the touchpad or the touch mouse..so yes, FXos will need a touchmouse (like Apple magic mouse or that new Microsoft touch mouse).
The first image will show you how the stream layer would look like on the desktop version. Please note that it also bring the same UI element as the mobile version. It just spread the information into 3 column. I think is one way to have the same base code for mobile and dektop/tablet app.
And here is the mobile version..
The second image is showing the add new tab interface. Also, using the same UI as the mobile version, but have more column. Hmm..i forgot to state this, the icon design is not mine. i get it from deviantart, but didn't remember the designer. Please email me, if this is yours or you know who desined it.
And, yeah..kinda lazy here..i use the same icon sets in 3 column. Yes, the tablet/desktop version will have 3 column..just like the stream layer.
In the mean time, i start designing the another way to have the same app design for both deaktop/tablet and mobile version. will show it soon.
