New User Interface for Firefox 3.7/4.0

Mozilla have unveiled some screenshots of the new Windows theme/UI updates for upcoming Firefox 3.7 and 4.0.

The designer and contributor to the Mozilla project - Stephen Horlander explains that the new App Button will appear in the top-left of the new UI. According to Horlander, the App Button solves a number of issues:

  • It is less complex
  • Takes up less space
  • Instead of two potentially conflicting locations for menu items, there is now only one unified location
  • Can be placed in the upper left analogous to the Menubar paradigm it is replacing
  • Similar to the far more ubiquitous Office 2008/2010 + Windows 7 application menu
  • Reduces clutter on the Navigation Toolbar
  • It also creates a more flexible and rich canvas for perhaps doing some decidedly non-menu-esque things

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of Firefox 4.0 and the current 3.5:

A public release of Firefox 4.0 is expected at mid 2010 and the final release at the end of 2010.

I like this. It took me sometime to realize all of the great add ons firefox has to offer but having the tab will really help me sort through them.
