Future Firefox browsers may look more like iTunes

Posted on Friday, April 17 2009 @ 04:31:07 CEST by

Mozilla designers are thinking about the future of Firefox and are proposing some radical changes to the browser's user interface. One of the ideas is to remove the tabs, and turn the interface into something that looks more like iTunes:
Reichenstein argues that tabs were a good solution for an earlier age of the Internet, when users hardly ever had more than ten tabs open at any given time. Now, however, as browsers are slowly turning into operating systems, a new paradigm for organizing this information has become necessary.

The current generation of browsers does a decent job when it comes to keeping a current browser session organized, but Reichenstein wants to create a system that structures the browser more like a mutimedia file system. He proposes a new interface that looks more like iTunes than today's Firefox, with folders, libraries, and bookmarks in a sidebar.
