Firefox 3.7 Screenshots. New UI Design

Firefox 3.5 was just released couple of weeks back and the Mozilla team has already introduced its initial Windows theme mockups for Firefox 3.7, featuring glossy, translucent buttons and a host of other potential new features.

3.7 release is primarily targetting UI enhancement, though there will be alot of bug fixes and performance improvements aswell.

In fact, Mozilla took the time to explain these three changes from the 3.5 browser, corresponding to the first screenshot below. Here’s their new feature list on the wiki:

1. Embracing Glass: Toolbar and Tabs using Glass. Buttons translucent and slightly glossy to meld with the toolbar. Raised 3D lookachieve tactile “feel”.

2. Page Button: Connect the Page button to the left side of the tab area. Directly connected to the Page.

3. Tools/Bookmark Bar: Connecting the Tools button to the side of the window to emphasize the fact that it is used for customizing and changing the UI. Adding a button next to that to toggle the Bookmarks bar which is turned off by default.

Though the MozillaWiki weblog stresses that these changes are “only for brainstorming/exploration,” the updated Firefox theme for Windows Vista may include the following tweaks:

  • If you can't wait for the new version of Firefox with the new UI you can get a collection of addons that will let you apply this theme now to you're existing version of Firefox. Search for Strata40 in the addons at Mozilla and make sure you download other required addons (for the glass effects) and disable any that might conflict.
