In connection with the upcoming launch of new Windows version, practically all large-scale software developers have started to customize their projects pursuant to the future product. Windows 8 producers promise to give their customers a lot of unexpected surprises. Experts assume that new OS version will be equipped with voice and face recognition system, improved error correction and security system, improved virtualization system, and some changes in design. Absence of the habitual ‘Startup’ button and integration of ‘Start’ screen in Metro style can be attributed to those changes.
Mozilla Corporation does not lag behind and took measures on customization of its Mozilla Firefox browser. Mozilla representatives have already given certain details concerning the innovations and provided a few screenshots for proofs. As seen from those screenshots, the very browser version will correspond to the requirements of new Windows 8 and will work in Metro style as well. Besides, this style will be totally integrated in desktop versions of Mozilla Firefox.
It should be stated that Firefox developers got down to the browser’s functional characteristics in real earnest. First of all, in order to simplify the work with the browser, the company’s team has changed the appearance and functional of top and sidebar panels. The top panel will contain all basic control components; the control components will be enlarged exclusively for devices with sensor screens. Sidebar panel will provide the direct access towards the browser settings; the access to the settings will be enabled due to the additional button on a panel.
The innovations introduced by the developers should not confuse Mozilla Firefox users at all, according to the experts’ estimates. Along with new design and new functional possibilities, the users will fulfill habitual operations while working simultaneously with several tabs.
