Ux overview fxworkweek_april2012


Published on

It's been a few months now since we merged the mobile and desktop Firefox user-experience teams into one supercharged all-platform Firefox design juggernaut (in the good sense). In that time, we've been hard at work digging into the next set of features and improvements, as well as pursuing one of our major goals for the year: getting Firefox to feel more like one product — more Firefoxy — across all our platforms, desktop to tablet to phone.

I presented an overview of what we're working on at the Firefox Toronto Workweek last week. Here are the slides (and a direct link, just in case). I had a fair bit to say about them, so I'll be posting a video of the talk soon, but the mockups and wireframes in the slides are too awesome to wait. The team will be posting about each of these projects, individually, in more depth.

This presentation makes reference to the Kilimanjaro project, a set of short-term priorities around integrating the browser and ecosystem projects (identity, apps, marketplace) that Mozilla is working on right now. You can learn about it on the Kilimanjaro wiki page.

Many thanks to the team (see slide 2!) for all their hard work.

  • Scrap the whole idea. I don't want to be using a Google Chrome knock off. (Has Google bought out Mozilla?) Unlike what most developers at Mozilla think I actually have a Brain and know how to operate a Computer. I don't need a V-Tech 3 year old's display to operate my computer.

  • Great, but in Windows please get rid of the space between the tabs and the top of the window (in other words, leave that as it is in the current version of FF).

  • The only one thing bother me about firefox and my monitor are the fricking title bar, I just hate it. Thats the reason I am using chrome right now, because it doesnt show it, it doesnt know it exists. btw i love FF, just cant stand that bar.
