Mozilla’s Firefox browser is no doubt a popular choice among all the browsers currently available, and even better news for those running on Android Honeycomb tablets as Mozilla revealed today in a blog post that they are working on a version of their browser that has been optimized for tablets.
Based on the screenshots it appears that Mozilla has stuck with the somewhat minimalist Honeycomb theme while keeping certain features, such as retaining the trademark Firefox UI like the back button for example. It also features a tabs interface on the left side of the tablet, allowing you to switch between tabs with your left hand while scrolling and interacting with content with your right hand.
We have to admit that the optimized version looks pretty neat, but unfortunately no word from the Firefox team as to when we will be able to expect the tablet optimized version of Firefox to be made available.
