The Friend Workspace

The Friend Workspace is the client side framework and desktop environment that runs in any modern standards compliant web browser. It uses plain JavaScript, CSS and HTML. The Friend Workspace is in constant development but can already be used on a smartphone, tablet, in VR or on a desktop PC. It uses responsive CSS and user agent recognition to gracefully modify its user interface to fit each device.

We aim to take the usability and design of the Workspace to a new level. We intend to create beautiful and user friendly interfaces that suits a broad spectrum of users coming from different platforms. Apple users are used to one way of working in a desktop environment. Windows users work in a slightly different way. The ability of Friend to switch UI paradigms is powerful for attracting users from different backgrounds. It is a promise of customizability that is the essence of Friend’s vision of freedom.
