Opera, the Web browser, is looking for feedback from users over how the User Interface (UI) appears on different on different platforms and how it should look in the future.
U.K. designer Jon Hicks has just started as Lead Designer at Opera and is looking for feedback.
"I'm currently working on a strategy on how to take the Opera User Interface forward, and I'm eager to get your opinions on a particular subject: Native look and feel."
"How much does Opera feel like native application on your operating system? How much does it matter to you? Those using Opera on just one platform may want it look utterly native, whereas those using it on multiple platforms might appreciate a consistent 'family' look. This is one of the things I'll be looking at, and striving to find the right balance and approach."
Although primarily a Mac user, Hicks is looking for constructive feedback from all Opera users regardless of platform. Opera runs on a variety of personal computer operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.
