Looking for an alternative browser on your iPad?
Mozilla, the name behind the successful desktop web browser Firefox has been working on a web browser for iPad. Dubbed as Junior, this novel web browser that will be designed specifically for iPad will make web browsing more pleasurable and more ergonomic.
“We wanted to make something entirely new. We wanted to look into how we could reinvent the browser for a new form factor,” Firefox product designer Alex Limi said, calling Safari on iPad “a miserable experience”.
Junior will be very simple as compared to the other browsers and will incorporate just two buttons, including the ‘Back’ button and ‘Plus’ button. Amongst the two, the ‘Back’ button will do the standard back function, while the ‘Plus’ button will open a new window. Also, it will show recently closed/viewed websites, bookmarked sites and unified search bar.
Junior will offer a full-screen experience to the users who forgo tabs and will greatly depend on a few navigation buttons to access browser’s features. In addition, this browser for iPad is also expected to allow its users to make multiple accounts.
However, Junior by Mozilla is an early-experimental project and yet it is not confirmed for development.
