Firefox 5 First Look

By | February 17, 2011 | 8 Comments

Even though the Final version of Firefox 4 has not yet been released, Mozilla team is already working on a new UI functionality for the upcoming Firefox 5 (targeted this year) browser.

One of the few new features is tab coloring by favicon (which for some users might be a headache (if can’t be disabled)).

    I think, the tab coloring by favicon is inspired from IE9 – which does when you pin the site on task bar.

    Firefox taking those to next step, Good!!
    I like the browser war!!

    Mozilla you have given up.

    (Oh but Mozilla had this feature in testing for 200 years and finnally decided to release it)

    Its not that really impressive I mean dont get me wrong it looks pretty cool but why do I need this when I can just speed dial them? I honestly think Firefox should be focusing on different things than this.

    the tab colors will proly correspond the web’s natural color; twitter(light blue), cnn(red), etc.
    i think it’ll only be for popular sites or those sites thate are recognized

    I think this is a fascinating new idea, but I disagree on the ordering: The parent application (Firefox) should *always* be first, on the left. Each application should follow. It seems a more logical ordering, to me.
