A developer behind Mozilla's Firefox platform has offered an early look at the new interface for the browser.
In a post to his personal blog, Mozilla interface designer Madhava Enros outlined the company's plan to deliver a unified look for both the mobile and desktop versions of Firefox.
Enros said that the planned interface will be offered on the Linux, Windows and OS X versions of the browser as well as Android and Windows Metro.
"It's been a few months now since we merged the mobile and desktop Firefox user-experience teams into one supercharged all-platform Firefox design juggernaut (in the good sense)" Enros explained in the post.
"In that time, we've been hard at work digging into the next set of features and improvements, as well as pursuing one of our major goals for the year: getting Firefox to feel more like one product — more 'Firefoxy' — across all our platforms, desktop to tablet to phone."
The planned interface will offer what Enros described as a "soft texture" with rounded corners for the window and tab designs. The proposed interface would use the same address bar and status look for the handset version of the browser as well as the tablet and desktop builds.
Mozilla's interface overhaul comes as Firefox continues to fight for market share with Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Google's Chrome browsers.
A recent report from Net Applications placed Microsoft atop the market with a 54.1 per cent share. Firefox was a distant second in the rankings with a 20.2 per cent share.
