    New Firefox 4.0 GUI Facelift Elements Revealed


    Mozilla is pushing on with the redesign process of Firefox’s graphical user interface. Early adopters that have followed closely the evolution of Firefox 4.0’s facelift will be able to tell that the New Theme project page now features extended timeline after a recent update. At the same time, Firefox 4.0 developer Stephen Horlander has revealed additional elements that are an integral part of the Firefox 4.0 facelift. Users will be able to access screenshots depicting Mozilla’s plans for the evolution of the UI of the next major version of Firefox via the images included at the bottom of this article.

    “The new theme for Firefox will modernize the web browser interface, reflecting the power, simplicity and customizability of the world's most popular browser. Ensuring that the application feels like a natural part of the user's desktop, web life, and task flow are key goals,” Mozilla reveals on the New Theme page for Firefox 4.0.

    Looks good. I remember there was talk of a major facelift for 3.6 I think it was, but I don't remember.

    Is that glass effect going to be native? I had to work to get the glass effect on mine, I really like it.
