Mozilla has been very keen on entering the tablet market with their browser and just like Firefox for mobile, the browser will provide a unique experience for tablets.
Today, one of the design team members at Firefox; Ian Barlow, revealed some new designs for Firefox that will run on Android Honeycomb based tablets. Most of the design has evolved from the mobile version of Firefox, however, it has been modified to take advantage of the larger screen sizes of tablets.
The Awesomebar on Firefox for Tablets will continue to use tabbed menu to allow for quick access to bookmarks, history and synced desktop activity on the tablet.
Additionally, Firefox for tablets will display more UI elements on the screen rather than hiding it like they did it on the mobile version of the browser. This will allow you to quickly perform tasks like opening new tabs or scrolling through them.
Overall the design for the tablet version of Firefox looks pretty good and I would definitely like to try it out. However, there is no date on when the tablet version will be released and it might only be compatible with Honeycomb and higher versions of the tablet. Ian has also posted some more mockups of the design of Firefox for tablets on his Flickr account, which can be viewed by visiting this link.
So what do you think of the design mockups of Firefox for tablets? Do you like it? Do you think you would prefer it over the Android browser? do drop in your thoughts through your comments.
