Firefox, the second most used browser in the world, has been there for mobile devices since the Maemo times, it’s prominently used in Android too, but gets lost due to too many choices in the market. But they are not giving up, they have just demoed the concept of how the Honeycomb Firefox browser will look like.
The UI looks much in line with Honeycomb’s minimalistic styling with Landscape tabs reminding us of the Honeycomb’s task switcher. The buttons are styled as per the Firefox specifications, for example the big back button and the address bar which incorporates a refresh button, but they look minimal with flattened lines and 2D looks.
The above image shows you the tabbed browsing interface that mozilla hid with a left swipe in mobile. Clearly taking advantage of the real estate offered in tablets, the interface offers easy management of tabs. The below image shows you how the tabs work in portrait orientation.
Oh and they chose to keep their awesome bar that was an impressive feature in Mobile.
For more update on when this will arrive for real, follow the Firefox blog ! 🙂
Oh, how many times i have searched for my USB cable to connect the Digital camera to my PC to initiate the process of sharing my pics to the world. As always, i store my stuff locally on the hard disk and then share it on the web through various methods and also if people want a local copy they can always plug in their thumb drive and then just drag and drop. I always used to distribute my stuff locally thru thumb drives and external disks. Somehow Samsung has a likening to this concept and made a concept camera out of it. Have a look :
UCIM concept camera from Samsung
This concept, designed by Jung Eun Park from Samsung ,has three thumb drives in-built(see those three blue strips?) so take a photo, 3 copies are made and stored on the thumb drives. Give it to your friends to copy and wait for them to return it back. There is also a USB port to connect the camera directly to a USB host like a PC or even the Nokia N8.This allows an easier, cheaper and instant sharing of your photos with friends. But it is no match to the mature wireless mobile phone sharing capabilities, still, something is better than nothing, agree ?
