Mozilla Labs Concept Series: Pie Assisted Gestures

A few days ago, Mozilla Labs invited students to answer the question: “What would a browser look like if the Web was all there was? No windows, no unnecessary trappings. Just the Web.” I thought I’d take a crack at it myself, even though I’m clearly going to get my ass kicked by the engineering undergrads 🙂

Here’s a video I knocked together, which shows a very rough mockup of the UI. The basic idea is this – to extend pie menus in such a way that they can help train users into using mouse gestures, and remain as a backup for more complex commands.
