The scopes are an amazing utility within Ubuntu that has made many users have more functionality on their computer than through other operating systems. And that has reverberated as well on Ubuntu Phone and tablets with Ubuntu. And while it’s quite functional, many users are complaining about the mobile aspect, where the use of scopes is not as customizable and manageable as many would like.
That’s why major Ubuntu developers, most notably David Silence, have announced a remodel to the Ubuntu Phone Dash. A remodel that will include tabs and a browser for scopes.
Dash Browser Scopes will be the name of this new feature
From what has been presented through prototypes, the new design will be a browser similar to Chrome or Mozilla, In other words that is, a simple look with tabs and through these tabs the user will be able to modify and manage the scopes of the system. It is an interesting and useful thing that is already used in the Unity Dash for Desktop, an ideal system for mouse operation but not for touch operation, which has meant an almost mandatory change now that Ubuntu users Phone have grown in number.
Although the truth is that this system is very original and quite practical due to the features it will give to devices with Ubuntu Touch, the truth is that reminds me of the early versions of Chrome OS where tabs reigned throughout the operating system. Something that might well happen here, but the prototypes indicate something more solid. More different than Chrome OS.
these modifications we will see them in the last otes of the year or so the team has indicated in recent video conferences. Possibly before the end of the year we have a different Ubuntu Phone but not a renewed Unity on our computer.
