Having described an exemplary operating environment, some exemplary embodiments of the linear control layout module 111 can now be discussed.

Exemplary linear control layout module

FIG. 2 depicts an exemplary web browser at 200 in accordance with one or more embodiments. In this particular example, web browser 200 includes a web browser user interface 202 that includes a control layout area 204 adjacent to a content presentation area 206.

The control layout area 204 is provided under the influence of the linear control layout module 111 (Fig. 1). The control layout area 204 is designed to assist the user in focusing on the content of the website, such as those present in the content presentation area 206, while removing some of the distracting power that can be provided by the control. For example, the web browser user interface can include a subset of selected controls distributed along a single line at the top of the web browser user interface through the linear control layout module. These lines are shown in detail in Figure 3.

FIG. 3 depicts the control layout 204 in detail in accordance with one or more specific embodiments. In this example, multiple control systems are assigned along a single line (calibrated as " l "). As noted above, the layout of such controls can be in the form of a left to right or a right to left. Any suitable type of criteria can be utilized to determine how to assign the selected controls along the single line. In one or more implementations, the control group can have a relationship with others based on the control, as will be apparent below. For example, in at least a particular embodiment, at least a particular one of the controls that occurs along the single line is associated with a particular type of navigation. For example, the controls can include (for example only non-limiting) backward and forward navigation buttons 300, navigation controls 302 for providing input fields for receiving or presenting text (eg, address strips or search bars), and/or Or enable the user to switch between different content views (eg, tag 304).

In the illustrative example, because each is related to a tour, it can be desired to group the backward and forward navigation buttons together. Moreover, in at least a particular implementation, it can be desired to group a single address strip, such as that represented by navigation button 302, adjacent to the backward and forward navigation buttons. In some examples, this is because the address bar and the backward/forward button are related to the range of URLs that the browser has navigated through the backward and forward navigation buttons when the address bar is displayed.

In addition, other controls can be assigned along a line 1 , for example, as an auxiliary control 306. In at least a particular embodiment, from a visual point of view, line 1 then defines the continuity of the control that is assigned to a lesser extent (or none at all) in accordance with a particular standard or criterion. In at least a particular embodiment, line 1 is placed at the top of the web browser user interface (Fig. 2) and includes at least a particular navigation control with no other navigation controls present on the navigation control. In other embodiments, line 1 is disposed at the top of the web browser user interface and includes a label strip that contains one or more labels on which no other navigation controls are present.

Figure 4 depicts a control layout area 204 in accordance with another embodiment. Similar to the symbols of Figure 3, specific components have been described using specific embodiments. In this example, control layout area 204 includes a navigation control 302 that provides input fields (eg, address strips or search bars) and enables the user to switch between views of different content (eg, along a long line of l The input means of the assigned tag 304).

Figure 5 depicts controlling layout area 204 in accordance with one embodiment of another embodiment. Similar to the symbols of Figure 3, specific components have been described using specific embodiments. In this example, control layout area 204 includes a backward and forward navigation button 300 and an input means that enables the user to switch between views of different content (eg, a tag 304 assigned along a long line l ).

Figure 6 depicts controlling layout area 204 in accordance with one embodiment of another embodiment. Similar to the symbols of Figure 3, specific components have been described using specific embodiments. In this example, control layout area 204 includes a label 600 within which a single address strip appears. Line l is broken for display for clarity of description. In this example, having an address bar contained within the tag can facilitate clarity and visual recognition of a current address. In particular, the information with this share appears in a control to provide a clear address of the address that the user has navigated. Switching and navigating positions take fewer steps and utilize less cognitive load.

Visual processing that emphasizes the control of website content

Moreover, in at least certain embodiments, a control set can be visually processed within the web browser user interface in a manner that places greater emphasis on website content rather than control.

As an example, consider Figure 7, in which symbols similar to the embodiment of Figure 2 are used to describe similar elements. Here, an example web browser 200 is shown in accordance with one or more specific embodiments. In this particular example, web browser 200 includes a web browser user interface 202 that in turn includes a control layout area 204 and a control presentation area 206.

In the above example, the control layout area 204 is provided under the influence of the linear control layout module 111 (Fig. 1). The control layout area 204 is designed to assist the user in focusing on the content of a website, such as content presented within the content presentation area 206, while removing certain distractions that can be generated by the control. For example, the web browser user interface can include a subset of the selected controls distributed along a single line at the top of the web browser user interface through the linear control layout module. Moreover, in this example, the web browser user interface presents a display for a client desktop 700, wherein the client desktop includes a theme rendered in the form of gray dots. Any suitable theme can be used.

In the particular embodiment described, in order to place a larger visual emphasis on the content being presented on the content display area 206, the control layout area 204 can be rendered to be effectively clear to reflect the basic theme. In particular, in this example, it should be appreciated that the controls appearing in the content presentation area reflect the basic subject matter indicated by the gray dot form. In at least some embodiments, when a user selects a particular control that appears within the control layout area 204, the control can assume a different color to facilitate the discovery of controls occurring in the control zone 204.

Alternatively or additionally, the controls occurring within the control layout area 204 can be presented in a monochromatic manner in which the controls and associated control layout areas in which the controls occur can be presented In a single color, the single color is selected to emphasize the content that appears in the content presentation area 206. For example, the controls and the control layout area 204 can be rendered in grayscale for placement emphasis on the control presentation area 206. Based on a control selected by a user, the control can assume a different color to place emphasis on.

Placement is emphasized on specific controls that appear in the control layout area

In a particular embodiment, visual emphasis can be placed on a particular control that appears in the control layout area. As an example, in accordance with an alternative embodiment, consider FIG. 8, which depicts the control layout area 204 of the example of FIG. Similar symbols used in the example of Fig. 3 are used to describe similar components.

In this example, as described in the example above, multiple controls are assigned along a single line assigned " 1 ". The example control includes (for example only non-limiting) backward and forward navigation buttons 300, provides an input field (eg, a bit bar or search bar) navigation control 302, and/or enables the user to be different The means for inputting the content for switching (for example, the tag 304).

In this example, you can see that the navigation button 800 is compared to the forward navigation. Button 802 appears with a larger display. In this example, button 800 is larger because it is used more often than forward navigation button 802. Other visually emphasized techniques can also be used without departing from the spirit and scope of the request.

Sizing the address strip relative to the label strip

As the display screen size level increases, there is a tendency to provide a wide screen user experience. It will be appreciated that at least some of the above-described embodiments are related to providing an improved user experience via the effective use of horizontally available screen real areas.

In at least a particular embodiment, the web browser is designed in one manner to effectively manage the controls in the control layout area when the web browser window is resized. For example, the web browser can understand the horizontal resolution of the display screen and respond to the resizing operation of a window to intelligently manage the layout of the label and the address strip.

For example, the web browser can select a ratio between the size of the label strip containing the label and the address strip. This ratio can be changed by changing the change in the horizontal resolution of the display screen. Again, once the ratio is selected between the label strip and the address strip, the web browser can attempt to maintain the ratio when the web browser window is resized (e.g., made smaller). However, at certain threshold levels as the size of the web browser window is reduced, the web browser can switch to a reduced address strip width and can begin to remove specific controls (eg, assist control). The dimension of the reduced width of the address bar can be selected to Hold a desired amount of internal text. As the size of the window continues to decrease, the web browser can begin to remove the tag to cause the address bar and the navigation controls to be viewable on a varying small screen size.

Having described various embodiments above, reference is now made to the exemplary method in accordance with one or more embodiments.
