Another Chrome clone in the making.
Back in 2012, Mozilla promised to overhaul the overall UI in the upcoming Firefox 19 release (see screenshot below). Well, that did not happen.
Now, it looks like someone from Mozilla has finally decided to deliver these promised changes with Firefox 25, which is set to be released in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Available in the UX Nightly channel, Firefox 25 includes Google Chrome like tabs and currently looks like this (which is a huge problem if you are using a dark Windows 8 skin):
According to TNW, Firefox 25 is set to also include the following UI changes:
- Remove tab affordance from background tabs.
- Separate Bookmark Star from locationBar and merge with Bookmarks Menu item.
- Updated Panel Based Application Menu and Customization Mode.
- Windows (All): Draw entire window frame including Caption Buttons.
- Windows XP: Custom window frame style for all default themes.
