Space screen is precious

Recommended Posts

Hi, congratulations on MX5 beta.

Now, please reduce infobox size. It is taking a huge screen space without reason. I see blank space around everything. If it needs to grow at some point, do it, but blank space=wasted space. You could enlarge the address box to show the full address (not just the domain name, let that for Internet exploited and Chromium oxide). Reducing the button size (back, reload, home) would be a good idea as well.

Missing my dark skin, I understand that kind of customization will come later.

Stripped my bookmakrs and put chinesse sites instead, that is not good (sites history was preserved). Please allow old bookmarks import.

Last but not least, PLEASE, work with ghostery in order to make that extension work with Maxthon. ABP is not enough, it consume resources Ghostery don't (even customized as you did).

Thank you, keep the good work!

if the latest, then you can reduce its size (size is remembered)

Hi Apollyon, thanks for your feedback and encouragement.

really glad that you've been using Maxthon.

The blank space around has been forwarded to our design team. They designed it by learning from win10 style, which has big space and squares around.

SnowLeopard also noted the spaces between icons in this post 

So, if there are more people ask for a less space between icons,

maybe our design team will start to change current design.

Thx again for your feedback.

In my thinking, the whole UI takes too much screen space.  Tabbar, navbar, and Userbar (in particular) arw too high and the sidebar is too wide.  These dimensions are the first things I target when I make skin changes.

There is of course a competing usability requirement that limits how far this can go.  But the tabbar does not need to be 32dip high; and the userbar (infobar) doesn't need 40dip height.  My target forr all three of these and the sidebar is about 2/3rd their current size, but I haven't succeeded yet - things are still too fluid.

The goal is save screen real estate for the web content, not the controls.

I agree with OP

Ok ↑ THAT'S WANT I WANT TO SEE!

Also in the infobox, they should have a default bin for the bookmarks, and they should upgrate to the shortcut bar automatically, adding a bookmark is way to hard... remember K.I.S.S Keep It Simple Stup...

Don't forget "If it ain't F***ed don't fix it"

I agree panels should be resizable horizontally and Bookmarks in central panel should be resizable verically (they are too large at present).
