Mozilla is working on a major redesign for its desktop Firefox browser, code-named “Proton”.
“Proton,” the Firefox redesign was first teased by Mozilla earlier this month. Now, the company has shared a few mockups that reveal the subtle visual changes Firefox will undergo when version 90 is released.
According to the meta bug, the following Firefox UI elements are getting design changes.
- Address Bar
- Tabs Bar
- Hamburger Menu
- Door Hangers
Mozilla will make it easier than ever to customize the look of the New Tab Page. Users will be able to choose their theme of choice, a background, and toggles for Top Sites and Pocket recommendations.
The company will also allegedly change the hamburger menu in Firefox. Finally, it appears the new Firefox update will also introduce rounded tabs, which refines the overall look of the browser.
Users can actually try some of these new features out if you’re curious about the changes. Firefox makes it easy to tweak developer settings by typing “about:config” in the address bar.
Mozilla warns that tweaking these features could have a negative impact on performance.
