Mozilla ponders major Firefox UI refresh

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla is working on a revamp of Firefox to synchronize its various versions -- desktop, tablet, phone and Windows 8 Metro -- into a single visual style, according to documents posted by members of its user interface (UI) design team.

The project, which does not have a name, and the earlier blending of Mozilla's mobile and desktop design groups, is meant to bring more coherence to the various versions of the open-source browser.

"One of our major goals for the year [is] getting Firefox to feel more like one product -- more 'Firefoxy' -- across all our platforms, desktop to tablet to phone," Madhava Enro of the Mozilla UI design team, said in a post to his personal blog yesterday.

Mozilla ponders major Firefox UI refresh

Frustrated Please!!! I thought all this "Metro" nonsense had died out years ago. Now I will have to spend many hours undoing what they are trying to do! I guess if they want to fall off the same cliff as Windows and Chrome they can just jump on the same bandwagon. Pretty pathetic if you ask me!
