Mozilla designer Stephen Horlander posted a set of screenshots, which he calls “really early mockups”, for what might be some new design possibilities. These new designs were part of an internal meeting and were up for discussion to talk about different designs. Some are out of date, but some could possibly be the future of Firefox. You can see the entire set here.
Although there’s no word when or if the design will change, according to TechCrunch, we could see these changes sometime in the near future.
Here’s a run down of some of the changes that are noticeable from the mockups:
- No more search bar
- Full screen mode
- More room for content
- Tabs have a rounder curve
- Only active tabs have the round curve, which identifies what is currently open easier
- New menu which includes tasks like copy, paste, new tab and more
So far, I like what I see and I think Firefox is due for a change. What kinds of features would you like to see in a new Firefox design?
