The utter user-interface butchery taking place to Safari on the Mac is as soon as once more the work of people that put iOS first. Individuals who by now suppose in iOS phrases. Individuals who view the venerable Mac OS person interface as an older individual whose traits should be experimented upon, cosmetic surgery after cosmetic surgery, till this individual seems to be youthful. Sadly the impact is extra like this individual finally ends up wanting… bizarre.
These individuals take a look at the Mac’s UI and (that’s the impression, at the least) don’t actually perceive it. Its foundations come from a previous that just about appears inscrutable to them. Usability cues and options are all wrinkles to them. iOS and iPadOS don’t have these unusual wrinkles, they muse. We should disguise them. We’ll make this spectacular facelift and we’ll disguise them, one after the other. Mac OS will look as younger (and silly, cough) as iOS!
I haven’t encountered a single one that likes the brand new Safari tab design on macOS.
