Mozilla working on Firefox 3 visual refresh for Linux

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla user interface design specialist Alex Faaborg wrote a lengthy blog entry last week about plans for the Firefox 3 visual refresh. Faaborg explained the importance of creating applications that visually integrate with the rest of the operating system and displays screenshots of the new default Firefox 3 themes for Mac OS X and Vista.

"I think a unified cross platform UI results in applications that at best feel foreign everywhere, and at worst don't even feel like real applications," wrote Faaborg. "Making XUL appear truly native means we have to do some extra work when new operating systems are released, like Vista and Leopard, but I think this work clearly results in a superior user experience."
