Windows 8 Explorer to feature Ribbon UI, SkyDrive and Mesh integration? (Download Squad)

Apr 3rd 2011 3:29PM I don't see how they can rectify the Ribbon UI with Metro UI. I was really hoping to see the latter overtake the former in Microsoft general. Just look at how much more attractive this could be: http://boneyardbrew.deviantart.com/art/Metro-Desktop-Concept-161916957?q=gallery%3Amicrosoftmetrolovers%2F26087461&qo=8

Windows 8 welcome screen revealed, looks very Metro (Download Squad)

Apr 3rd 2011 12:42AM @Alicia A. I would hardly think that some text and an image would make any significant performance difference. If anything, the minimalism of the Metro UI design language lends itself more toward efficiency. Metro tends towards text instead of images and opaque, solid color instead of transparency.

Honestly, though, if you've got a modern machine I don't see how any of this is problematic.

Microsoft.com redesigned, brings WP7's Metro UI to the Web (Download Squad)

Mar 17th 2011 9:39PM Now please bring it to the PC.

I long ago got tired of Aero Glass and cobbled together my own Metro-style theme after studying the design language and core ideas behind it. Unfortunately I'm no graphic designer, so it's a bit lacking. I would love to see Microsoft's take on it.

Feb 15th 2011 3:30PM Probably better to do with friends than strangers. People will just add their stuff and skip all of yours...

Firefox Friday: Firefox 5, HTML5 games, WebM DRM, and beta updates (Download Squad)

Feb 4th 2011 2:45PM I like home dash, but one problem I'm running into is that whenever I mouse over the login page for my router (which happens to be one of the top sites I've visited recently) it pops up a dialogue asking for me to login in order to display the preview.

I've already condensed my entire Firefox UI to the titlebar anyway, and although I do like this quite a bit, it doesn't necessarily save me much space. It just makes my minimalist obsessions more practical to implement.

IE9 Tweaker is an easy way to customize Internet Explorer 9 (Download Squad)

Oct 8th 2010 10:29PM To start IE in fullscreen mode, just... use fullscreen mode. It saves its state automatically for next session.

Sep 23rd 2010 5:27PM I would say Freeman, but there'd be no dinner conversation.

Samus started gettin' chatty recently. But she'd monologue all night.

I'm thinking Coach. He's too awesome.

Microsoft rolls out new Bing Rewards incentive program (Download Squad)

Sep 22nd 2010 1:00PM You don't have to settle with 8 points a day. Just click all the links in the "current offers" section and net almost 30 more.

If I can somehow hide the Bing bar so it doesn't take up so much space, this could be worthwhile.

Sep 20th 2010 12:45AM I was going to pronounce it "quill".

Sep 12th 2010 7:02PM And it got... 3 out of my 9 taskbar apps. Not even Zune or Outlook.
