Here’s where you’ll find the list of projects and prototypes Blake has been working on.
A staging area for upcoming changes to the Design System. (Take a look at the code.)
A live mockup of some webcam/mic/screen sharing ideas. (Take a look at the code.)
Some experiments in making Firefox a little more fun.
(Take a look at the code.)
(Pssst, Angelina, it mostly replaces the thumbnails in the new-tab screen with animated gifs from an etherpad…)
We think we can do something interesting with saving for later, and the Mozilla Foundation agrees with us! This is a first stab at something we’re looking into. (Take a look at the first and second videos, and if they seem interesting, view the code.)
We have a lot of ideas about what to do with the space that’s displayed when you open a new tab, before you go anywhere. This is where we’ll explore some of them. (Grab the add-on now!)
There is a lot of information we could use on mobile devices in order to give people better search suggestions. By installing this custom build, and this add-on, you can see an experimental version of what we’re aiming for.
Wouldn’t it be really cool if we could easily create mockups that linked to bugzilla, like the ones at Are We Pretty Yet? Well, I’ve started on a tool to enable that. You can find the code in this Github repo, and any assistance would be quite welcome!
At the 2012 Firefox UX Concept Week, one of the ideas we had was to change the chrome when the user was on a site that we believe to be insecure, even though they had allowed the exception. This add-on will make that change, but in the interests of development speed, it assumes that any site not on the Alexa Top 1000 Sites list is untrustworthy. 😉
