Mozilla has unveiled some forthcoming changes to Firefox designed to make the browser's user interface run better on Android tablets.
Ian Barlow, a designer on the Mozilla Mobile Team, outlined three key updates in a blog post involving theming, the 'Awesomebar' and tabs.
He explained that the team had designed the updates to match Android Honeycomb's "minimalist design language", but with the inclusion of important Firefox elements such as the large back button and "distinctive tab shape".
Second up is the Awesomebar, which has been providing an easy-to-view way of accessing bookmarks, history and synchronised desktop activity since Firefox 3.
Barlow revealed that the tabs have been moved to the left, making them easier to reach and increasing the number that can be displayed above the keyboard.
Finally, Barlow explained that the larger screen size for tablets has given the design team more room to bring in additional elements such as tabs.
"In landscape mode, tabs exist in a persistent left bar, allowing for quicker browsing. You can switch through tabs with your left thumb, and scroll through web content with your right," he said.
"In portrait mode, this tab bar gets rolled up into a menu item at the top of the screen to free up browsing space below. So, whether you like keeping lots of tabs open and quickly switching back and forth between them, or if you prefer to just open a page and see nothing else on the screen, Firefox has you covered."
