Firefox 3 Visual Refresh

Apparently the Mozilla developers working on the next major Firefox release, version 3, are planning big integration changes. Operating system-wise, that is. Firefox will have Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OS X themes, each carefully matched to the existing native applications and interface style. Alex Faaborg, part of Mozilla’s user experience design team, has more details on his blog.

I won’t get into too many details. However, I do hope the new ‘Fox will support switching between OS themes if the user wants. I might like to try out a Mac or Linux theme on my XP computer.


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
