Dynamic web layouts
Microsoft Research has an article here about a new templated document system that can dynamically alter the layout of a webpage depending on user preference and viewing condition.
For example on a hi-res workstation you may see multiple columns but over on a laptop or tablet the columns would be reduced to give a better reading experience.
A nice idea but would this be widely used in a world where web-developers take great pride and time in coming up the perfect design/layout? Anyway I’m sure this is a heads up for a new feature in the “Longhorn” wave somewhere…. maybe….. J
