UI under development. Designs are subject to change.

The shelf is an on demand target for downloading and uploading. It acts as a temporary resting place for files that have been accessed, and for content being uploaded to websites. It uses the same display format as the content browser and has similar actions available.

  • Surfaces as a source in content browser
  • Appears when content is dragged into the panel bar
  • Allows simple actions to be initiated from each item
  • Replaces the standard download shelf in Chrome.
