Howdy Indie Hackers!
I recently quit my job and have been working the last month on a concept browser extension using Figma. I'm a software engineer by trade, by no means am I a designer, but I thought it would be a great learning experience. I plan on being an indie hacker for years to come and having design skills will definitely help in the long run.
If I'm being honest, I started off coding before any validation but I'm fighting that engineer habit of mine. We've all heard that advice to validate your idea and although this is a project that will scratch my own itch I still want to make sure I'm listening to user feedback as early as possible.
So now onto my first project, TurboNav! https://turbonav.com/, it's a chrome extension tab manager. Recently I took up some part-time consultant work doing Technical Discovery and managing tabs for research I've done gets overwhelming rather quickly.
It's a pain point I know many people deal with. Current extensions in the market focus mainly on how to organize your tabs with very little context of the user's "Active Session". TurboNav will focus on making it easy to organize your "active tabs" by leveraging Tab Groups. But, that's just the beginning, the extension will be feature-packed with Commands in order to quickly create groups, save for later, schedule Routines, move tabs to a different group, the possibilities are endless. Think Superhuman for your tabs.
I think the three main differentiators against competitors are:
Hopefully the Landing Page makes that clear. I'm super excited for my first batch of feedback! Thanks for reading
