The potential of giving Google Drive an Evernote-esque UI overlay of cards and in-window editing could freshen up Skeomorphism’s longest lasting joke - The File Browser.
I’ve been putting some hours in lately on researching the old habits inherited with paper, from embedding Word docs into emails to the “Desktop” GUI. That means I’ve been taking a bunch of notes and I started to want the Evernote note window as my main file explorer, but the one thing I felt was missing was any other file that aren’t compatible. I’d love to see the Evernote-esque expereince take over the current File Browser. I think the closest to do it would be with Google Drive (Web) and Chromium. - If you own the viewer and the editor (doc, presentation, spreadsheet, graphic), why can’t the file browser allow you to edit?
