    Phoronix: The CSD Initiative Is Pushing For Apps To Abandon Title Bars In Favor Of Header Bars

    GNOME developer Tobias Bernard has announced "The CSD Initiative" in a push for more applications to support client-side decorations and as part of that to abandon boring title bars in favor of modern header bars...

    I wish I could say I don't like CSD at all because I feel it may bring more inconsistency... (I may be wrong)

      What do you gain by re-messing everything every 3 or 5 years? Is it because folks only have the horrible 16:9 vision-slits and not enough room between the borders for the actual content?
      And why do so many programs features such tiny tiny scollbars? Just because it's modern? Or because people are only capable of swiping gestures these days? Or ribbon design in MS products, anyone? Crippled desktop search? Fat, fancy, colourful buttons with icons nobody can guess the meaning of?

      I want to work. I want to be productive with my programs but I really doubt most "innovations" of the last 5 years in interface design brought really positive results. :/
      Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

        Great, so people with window managers that can hide the title bars completely to regain that screen space (and that includes Gnome 3 with the Pixel Saver extension for example) can't do that anymore because of those three buttons put there to make it "useful"...

          Gnome people commenting/suggesting design/UI/UX solutions. Sadly there is only one way to this. Please fuck off.

            Not really, because with CSD, the idea is to also put the "Cancel" and "OK" buttons in the top bar, so it will use the same space than without the title bar.

              I like CSD, but I don't like Gnome3. The Gnome people tend to make shitty decisions from good ideas.

                I would love if the entire industry would adopt the SUGD Initiative (Stop Using Gnome Desktop) because honestly they will not stop until absolutely no one likes them.

                  CSD are the greatest evil to beset civilization in our time.

                  Or, at least, they're a regressive step in the personal computer human-machine interface.

                    If they want devs to jump into their bandwagon, then they should start by making a CSD switch in their applications so that they are optional and can be turned off by other desktop environments and the people who hate them. First show some good faith to people if you want them to play along with you.
