What’s new and what to expect?
As people are getting used to the faster Mozilla Firefox release cycles, we have some news about the Firefox 11 and potentially Firefox 12 web browsers.
Firefox 11 Features
- Web Apps Integration to Desktop
- Improve display of location bar results
As you can see from the screenshot above, Firefox 11 will feature 32x32px icons and include few other UI changes, such as: ability to remove entry on hover, removed scrollbar, improved URL recognition, additional spacing and no separator line.
Anything else for Firefox 11? Yes.
- Redesigned HTML5 media controls
- In-content UI, meaning improved consistency of visual experience.
- New Tab Page
Originally planned for Firefox 9, it’s set to bring speed dial and few other goodies.
As far as release date goes, Firefox Alpha is set for December 20th.
Firefox 12 Features (?)
Now this is a tricky one. Although Firefox 12 changes are unknown, Firefox 11 has some of the features marked as “at risk”, meaning that it could be migrated to the next Firefox release, which is version 12.
The only guaranteed feature is a panel based Download Manager.
What else could you see?
- Firefox Home Tab
Locally hosted version of Home Tab, which will allow users to customize it in any shape in any way they want.
- Google Chrome settings migration
Originally planned for Firefox 10, it will allow users to import Google Chrome settings and data to Firefox web browser.
Firefox 12 release date remains unknown.
