Another cool thing about chrome

leave a comment »

Chrome is a great example of how an user interface should be done. There’s so many small things about it which are so useful. My current favourite is the ability to resize text areas (aka multi-line textboxes).

They put a subtle gripper on the corner which you can grab and increase the size.

I can’t believe how many sites provide you with ridiculously small text areas. They ask for a detailed description then give you 3 lines with enough space for maybe 40 words. Of course a scroll bar appears but they’re annoying with only 3 lines.

I hope all other browsers copy this function, it is a brilliant idea.
