A presentation by Mozilla’s Madhava Enros has surfaced online, giving us a look at the future of their popular browser, better known as Firefox. In the slides, you can quickly figure out what the goal is here – to create a browser that looks and feels the same across all platforms, hence the “distinctive and unified” mention at the top of the first slide. Over the last few months, they merged their mobile and desktop teams to hopefully make this dream come true.

The motto for this new project seems to be “soft, friendly, and human,” and that makes sense. After cruising through the slides, I sort of see what they are getting at with the curves, soft colors, and simple approach (wait, is that human?). In the presentation, you will find a number of pictures that represent the Firefox team’s ideas for the future of the browser. Be sure to check it out at the source link below.

I hate to be that guy, but it looks a bit Chrome-ish. And not that that’s a bad thing, since Google is trying to do something similar with their browser, by making the experience seamless between platforms. Some of the look or features has been taken from previous mobile versions though, but the overall look is quite a bit different. What are your thoughts on Firefox? I know that Chrome has become the #1 browser for many of you – are you willing to give Firefox another shot, though?
