Mozilla has finally launched a fresh new Firefox designed to get you surfing faster, and one of the changes to look out for is a simplified toolbar and streamlined menu.
According to Mozilla, the new Firefox toolbar “is simplified so you get to the good stuff effortlessly,” as they have “removed visual clutter to focus on the most important navigation items”.
Mozilla says the “streamlined menu puts priority actions quickly at your fingertips”, as they have reduced “visual noise by removing unnecessary iconography and provided clearer labels.”
Mozilla says this new detached design was made to encourage people to move their tabs around. “We detached the tab from the browser to invite you to move, rearrange and pull out tabs into a new window to suit your flow, and organize them so they’re easier for you to find,” Mozilla said in a blog.
Here’s a screenshot of what the new tabs look like.
Addressing things they took into consideration to arrive at the design, the Firefore Design team said, “When it came time to redesign the Firefox browser, we sought to create unity across the visual language of the browser while setting a foundation for some really interesting things to come.”
“Tabs are a funny thing to fixate on, but when you talk about a browser, it’s hard not to talk about tabs.”
