We are pleased to announce a major update of the Outklip Chrome extension dialog.
We had two goals in mind when we designed the first version of the Outklip Chrome extension dialog. One was to create a nice looking, modern interface. Two, we did not want to complicate the interface for beginner users, even as users’ needs evolved.
This extension dialog worked well for over two years but it was showing strains. The look of the dialog was different from popular Chrome extensions, which made it seem unfamiliar to beginner users. We also received many requests for new features. To support new features we added extra options on a separate webpage. But users found it hard to reach this webpage.
Over time, it became clear to us that we had to redesign the extension dialog.
The new dialog has a familiar look as it follows the design patterns of top Chrome extensions. The dialog opens under the Chrome extension icon on the right of the screen.
The new dialog retains the old dialog’s recording mode selection. Also, the recording options are now within reach unlike the old dialog. Options such as select audio and video devices, hide the control panel, the countdown clock value, etc. are now configurable on the dialog.
The new dialog is available in extension version 2.7.70 and higher. We believe this new dialog retains the simplicity while bringing new configurability to the Outklip Chrome extension.
