Cycle is building a better user interface for the web by creating a fundamentally new experience that challenges the traditional notion of a tabbed browser. The need for this is highlighted by two major technology shifts: The rise of cloud-based software and mobile devices.
The conventional web browser, which was designed with a tabbed document interface (TDI), was made with the consideration that users would be browsing the web on a desktop machine, and that the web was made up of pieces of static content. GUI tabs were actually modeled after traditional card tabs inserted in paper files.
This design has caused our modern cloud workspace to be a cluttered mess of tabs that is fragmented across a multi-device world.
Cycle is solving this problem by building a new user interface and data layer for the web that spans across all of your devices.
