“Reinvents” web browser by borrowing ideas from the Internet Explorer 10.
Well, here is something different for your news flow. After releasing Firefox Mobile for the Android devices, Mozilla went ahead and skinned a new web browser for the iPad, which, as you might guess, does use WebKit to render everything.
After a small introduction, guys at Mozilla said that they “wanted to make something entirely new” and “look into how we could reinvent the browser for a new form factor.”
Now, depending on your raised expectations, you might be either, disappointed or excited. Basically, they did not reinvent anything but just copied main ideas from the Internet Explorer 10 Metro, which focuses on a full screen experience, has same back key overlay and edge swipe.
I guess innovation is stagnating right now as the main ideas currently come only from two companies: Google (Chrome) and Microsoft (Internet Explorer) while everyone else just copies.
As far as release date goes, no details yet,
