Mozilla announced that a new User Interface for the Firefox browser (code-named Australis) is now officially available for testing. According to the Mozilla wiki, Firefox 25 is still the targeted stable release to contain this new User Interface. The proclamation was made at the ongoing Mozilla Summit which is taking place at three different locations worldwide. The event is being attended by approx 2500 Mozilla volunteers and employees.
The redesign of the User Interface promises to offer a cross-platform consistency – this essentially implies that the surfing experience shall be more or less the same irrespective of device being used to access the web via the Firefox browser. The new interface also promises to provide better customization which would give users a chance to choose how they access the web via the Firefox browser.
Australis is currently available for testing here.
