Mozilla is hard at work on a mobile version of Firefox. If they manage to stay on track, it should be out by the end of the year.
Aza Raskin, Mozilla’s Head of User Experience, has posted a video showing one the concepts that they are exploring at this time.
A number of concepts have already been showed off but Mozilla is still aiming for the same goals it had laid out earlier in the design cycle: Maximizing real estate available for browsing and keeping interaction with the browser as simple as possible. The video shows how multiple windows would work and how single touch gestures would be used to perform all the actions you normally associate with a browser (back, forward, search, type in a URL, etc). It’s definitely interesting stuff.
The video focuses on the version for touchscreen devices but Mozilla is also working on a version for non-touchscreen devices.
With this post, I officially declare today as Browser Day at Gadgetorama headquarters.
