OSNews, Generic OSes Hobbies. Where would the computer industry be without them? Arguably, there wouldn't be a computer industry had it not been for hobbyists in the first place. The ineffable need to scratch an itch does still percolate even in this closed down world of big mainstream technology from big companies opposed to the little guy innovating. OSNews asks, what are you working on? We want to hear from you about your hobby projects (technology related or otherwise) to get a sense of what the community is cooking up for love of it, rather than because you're paid to do so. Share and enjoy!

I’ve always wanted a browser with the URL bar on the bottom (like a combined statusbar / location). If you could do tabs in the title bar like Google Chrome then that would be even better.

I've always been wanting this too. I'm writing my own desktop environment (web browser, file manager, text editor, etc.) using Qt. The web browser kind of works. All of the applications have tabs on the bottom - this allows for both menus and tabs to accessed quickly, assuming you have no panels on the top or bottom of the screen (I just use a side panel). The web browser combines the status bar, location bar, and search bar at the bottom.
