Helm: A Browser Concept

Sebastiaan de With:

Last year I thought of an idea for a browser that would be minimalist. Not necessarily in an aesthetic sense; I’d just like a browser that gets out of the way. Like the new (and unloved) design for Quicktime X introduced in Snow Leopard, I’d love to see a browser focusing solely on content, and generally offer a more visual approach to browsing the internet.

These mockups will only stay as mockups, but they’re a sublime vision of the evolving function of the browser. The file saving tray is a particularly slick addition.
