Microsoft edge browser will introduce a new feature called “window controls Overlay” to enable developers to customize the title bar area of their PWA, so as to make the PWA application visually consistent with the native application.Recently, a technical document revealed the next step of Microsoft’s edge browser – canceling the edge title bar so that web developers can freely control this area.Amanda Baker of Microsoft edge team said in the technical document: “This feature enables developers to build web applications that make better use of screen space and allows them to design web applications more like native applications. As the device becomes smaller and more portable, the title bar occupies a very large part of the screen space, and the space left for users to interact with web applications becomes smaller accordingly. “

The kernel of ordinary revolution has two basic characteristics: space invariance and channel specificity; On the contrary, revolution has channel invariance and spatial specificity.In this paper, a new neural network operator called revolution is proposed. It is lighter and more efficient than revolution, and more concise in form than self attention. It can be used to improve the accuracy and efficiency of various visual task models. Through the structural design of revolution, we can understand the classical convolution operation and the recently popular self attention operation from a unified perspective.
