We have got a star at XWiki

Three months ago, Mozilla Lab's Concept Series launched their first Mozilla Labs Design Challenge. They invited design-focused students from around the world to participate and develop solutions to the question "What would a browser look like if the Web was all there was? No windows, no unnecessary trappings. Just the Web."

Different categories were proposed:

  • Best in Class: Innovation - For the solution that has the newest / most original interaction model
  • Best in Class: Execution - For the solution that has the most expressive prototype (polish as well as functional availability)
  • Best in Class: Interaction - For the solution that provides the best human-computer-interaction model
  • Best in Class: Producible - For the solution that would be the easiest to ship to users immediately

    Ecaterina Valica, our User Interface Designer and Web Developer, participated in this open call with the following proposal: "Collaborative research on a virtual desk". And she won in Innovation category. CONGRATULATIONS!!! We are very very proud.
