Mozilla team offers sneak peak at Firefox for tabletsBy Ryan Noik 31 August 2011 | Categories: news
The Mozilla Mobile team today offered a sneak peak into what tablet users can expect from its forthcoming iteration of the mobileFirefox browser, which is currently being customised for use on Android Honeycomb tablets. Ian Barlow, a visual designer for Firefox Mobile's User Experience team, explained on his blog that ‘Firefox for tablets is an evolution of its phone based predecessor, with some added enhancements that take advantage of a tablet’s larger screen size.’ He elaborated that, while the browser draws its overall theme from Honeycomb’s minimalist design, the development team has ensured that the browser has retained familiar visual elements, such as its signature large back button.
There’s no word as yet when we can expect the new release of the mobile browser, but more apps specifically built for the Honeycomb platform can’t come fast enough for our liking, and we will definitely be checking out these changes when they do become available in the Android market.
