Firefox for iPad is in the making and was named Firefox Junior
Apple iPad enthusiasts and would-be iPad users have more reason to rejoice for choosing this electronic wonder device after Mozilla announced it is developing a new browser for iPad – the Junior Firefox for iPad app. Mozilla tech-minds are promising this browser to create a better type work and entertainment environment for its users mostly complaining about not so excellent interface for web search with their iPads.
The developers of the Junior Firefox for iPad held a presentation earlier this month where it was said what is so great about Junior Firefox for iPad in comparison with other mobile browsers will be its click friendly full screen browser feature which means there is no toolbar or search bar. This application can be navigated using two buttons placed on both lower sides of the screen and just located near a person’s thumb. Pressing these transparent buttons enables the user to open a new page or go back to the previous page.
The button with a plus sign on it, at the right side of the screen is specifically used to search for a new page and also stores the thumbnails of recently visited or favorite sites. The left side button, on the other hand, creates a new page which looks the same with the Junior Firefox home page. It also has thumbnails for user accounts as well as the main Firefox logo.
Mozilla’s product design and strategy team also said the decision to remove the tabs as a feature for the Junior Firefox for iPad is a way of creating a unique tablet browsing experience. Of course, the current default Mozilla Firefox browsers for desktop computer and laptops that come out of the box have the tabs on the upper portion of the screen. The team added ridding the page of the tabs saves up so much space allowing more room for the sites that the user wants to look at.
Firefox Junior is the fun version of browsing on your iPad tablet
The team was quoted at the presentation that Junior Firefox for iPad app will definitely “make browsing more fun, more ergonomic and re-thinks browser used experience from the ground up.” The team of developers said it’s more than just another browsing experience it’s the Junior Firefox for iPad ultimate browsing, that can totally be disassociated with desktop computer and or even other mobile platforms.
Junior Firefox for iPad is simply easy to use, with only two buttons to click or tap with and voila, browsing is never going to be the same again. The browser deletes the problem of filling up the iPad screen with multiple tabs and search bars which makes it a lot of hassle for a small screen.
The information about iPad launch timelines for the Junior Firefox for iPad Mozilla is developing for Apple iPad has not been officially announced but iPad developers are surely excited with this innovation and the planned release. The Apple Safari browser now has a competition which, when time comes would be tested whether it’s iPad suitable or not.
Other than Mozilla, Google will soon create a similar mobile operating system (iOs) version of Chrome which could be a potential competitor to Junior Firefox for iPad in the future.
