Mozilla Firefox 25 Will Refresh Open Source Browser User Interface

Code-named Australis, the new UI is likely to debut as part of Firefox 25, due out in October of his year.

The Australis overhaul will be the biggest UI change since Firefox 4, which became generally available in March of 2011. After Firefox 4, Mozilla changed its release approach, from having only one or two releases in a year, to a rapid release cycle with new browsers released every six to eight weeks.

“Australis is our internal code name for a set of UI changes that is about answering the question of how do we build a browser that fits today’s web user,” Johnathan Nightingale, VP of Firefox Engineering at Mozilla, told Datamation.
