SECURE WEB BROWSER

April 2014 - July 2014

This app is a secure web browser used by employees to access internal websites without requiring a VPN connection. Users love this app because it gets them to their content faster. Considering the employees using this app, also use Safari, Chrome, Dolphin and other mobile browsers, my biggest objective was to bring the feature set on-par with existing browsers to match the consumer expectation. Bringing consumer quality to enterprise software is important, especially when designing something such as a mobile web browser, an app with which all employees have experience.

THE FACELIFT

The initial app update was a facelift to the open-source chrome provided by Google Chrome. V1 was a very basic iOS7 update targeted at making the app feel on-brand, and secure while we simultaneously designed for feature parity. The dark blue header background is aimed at making the app feel secure without throwing lock icons at the user.

THE REDESIGN

I designed various features and for the browser including rich tabs interactions on iphone, tiled view of bookmarks, loading and security screens, and improved search.

WHAT I LEARNED

A browser IS a productivity tool, and should fit the user's mental model and make his/her life easier.
