Firefox 4.0 Mockups has Hints of Google Chrome

It has barely been over a week since we wrote about the Firefox 3.7 mockups and there are already mockups of Firefox 4.0 mockups put on the Mozilla wiki.

Looking at these 4.0 mockups, we are quite surprised that Mozilla is almost trying to emulate the look and feel of .

Almost Chrome like look with tabs and top, and buttons for page options and tools, along with Omnibar like search options.

Tabs at bottom, just like current Firefox but with a additional bookmarks button.

Combining of the Stop/Refresh and Go buttons into a single one. The buttons will;

  • Turn green when you start typing.
  • Blend with the location bar when at rest.
  • Turn blue on hover.
  • Turn red when a page is loading.


Please note that these are only mockups and not the final version of Firefox 4.0, there may be several changes and additional features in the finished version, however we definitely like the look they are thinking to implement.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Firefox 4.0 mockups look good enough to you?
