While it’s not a lot to look at, the video showcases the process of setting up and organizing a collection of content folders. In its current form, Stars’ web setup is somewhat reminiscent of an earlier version of Drive.
We originally thought Stars would be ready for next month’s I/O conference, but the software’s current state tells a different tale.
“Actually, I was a bit surprised that the current state of Stars is behind my expectations (especially regarding I/O), Kiersch told 9to5Google. “I’m very curious how fast the developers will progress in the next two weeks.”
While Stars might not make it to I/O, the developer openly admitted that he was unsure of Google’s workflow for this type of project. He also pointed out that there’s a missing Chrome extension for Stars that could have dedicated functionality tied to it. Although we may not be sure when Stars will be ready for mass consumption, we now have a better idea of what to expect when Google reveals Chrome’s new way to bookmark internet content.
