Shiira OS X Web Browser
Published by marco on
Shiira is a KHTML-based web browser. If you visit this web site, you don’t waste a lot of time looking around for a Windows version, as it’s relatively clear that this is a Mac OS X product. Why is that? What is it about Mac products that demands a different level of graphical design quality and attention to detail? It can’t just be because everything’s shiny, can it?
No, it’s also the good use of the oversized header graphic that’s becoming quite vogue, both flaunting and reinforcing the browser graphical identity (it’s a fish) with greens and blues that evoke “water”. The page below it is nicely done, but fairly standard, but the menu bar and header graphic really draw in the eye and impress.
