Mozilla Showcases Potential New Features for Firefox 3.7 for Windows

It hasn’t been a month since Firefox 3.5 with all its great features was released to the awaiting masses, and barely a few days since the Firefox 3.5.1 security update was rolled out of Mozilla’s headquarters, but the development team of behind the web browser is already thinking of what next iterations of the software will bring to the table. Over the weekend, while all of us were at the beach or just trying to keep cool, the team behind Firefox posted an interesting image on the Mozilla wiki webpage.

The interesting thing about this image (see below) is that it presents 3 new features that will potentially be implemented in Firefox 3.7 – the Windows version of Firefox 3.7.

These potential new features are:
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.


The thing to keep in mind is that these are potential new features, with the emphasis on POTENTIAL. There’s even a big warning sign on the Mozilla wiki web page which says “These are NOT FINAL! THEY ARE ONLY FOR BRAINSTORMING/EXPLORATION!” What this means is that when Firefox 3.7 is finally rolled out, these features may or may not be available.

The one thing that is sure is that with the next iteration of the Firefox browser (presumably it will be Firefox 3.6, codename Namoroka, but this may change) the Mozilla Foundation will focus on providing a consistent level of integration with the Microsoft developed operating systems Windows Vista and Windows 7.
