His recent efforts have been on redefining the app button, the toolbar, the location bar, the search bar, and the bookmarks widget. For some Horlander’s discussion on possibilities may come off as rambling, but many others will appreciate the thought process that goes into deciding even the most mundane details of an application’s appearance.
For example, Horlander walks us through simple permutations on the location of tabs: Above the address field or below the address field? And if below the address field, above or below the bookmarks bar? Such simple things can make a world of difference in how you react to and use the new version of Firefox. (Ask those who despise the Office ribbon just how much an impact a simple visual interface decision can have.)
None of Horlander’s examples are a sure thing for Firefox 4. But the overall discussion does offer some ideas of the Firefox will be taking.
