Google Chromium has released visual explorations of how a Chrome OS tablet UI might look in hardware. Some possibilites they explore include:

  • Keyboard interaction with the screen: anchored, split, attached to focus.
  • Launchers as an overlay, providing touch or search as means to access web sites.
  • Contextual actions triggered via dwell.
  • Zooming UI for multiple tabs
  • Tabs presented along the side of the screen (see Side tabs)
  • Creating multiple browsers on screen using a launcher
