Firefox 3 News & Concepts Screenshots

 

FirefoxLogo

The guys at Mozilla have released the very first Firefox 3 mockup screen shots.

Looks

In these screenies Firefox has a complete UI overhaul and it looks fantastic! surprisingly it looks a lot like a vista application and more like IE than Firefox. Many are hoeing that this concept will stick around and become the default Firefox 3 theme for vista. Even still I am sure someone out there will create this theme for Firefox 2.

New Features


Private Browsing
Browse the web without cookies, temporary files or history being stored on your computer.

Places
A great new feature that stores bookmarks, history, and other information about Web pages. You will be able to add tags and index your content.

Bookmark Manager
Speaks for itself, basically sort and manage all your bookmarks.

Malware Detection
Firefox will now block sites that have been known to contain Malware, it will show a dialog asking if you want to proceed (see screens)

Mozilla is working alongside Google to develop this feature.

Content Handling
After downloading a file, you can now select the associated program to run that file from within the downloaded files box. 

Microformat Detection
You can now interact with microformat content.

 The Malware detection engine in action:

Content Handling in action:

The important thing to remember is this is very early stages and this stuff is not final and it also explains why the UI may look a little rough round the edges but if Mozilla go with this, the cool new features and that great UI Firefox 3 should be fantastic in my opinion!

Remember Ultimate Extras?

Ok so i got Windows Vista Ultimate because i thought i would get lots of cool stuff that other versions simply won’t have, how wrong was i? 😦

So far we have a Dreamscene Beta application that hasn’t been update since release, a simple poker style card game and bit locker that i will never use.

This is really disappointing and to make matters worse Microsoft said that by the end of Summer they would bring out the full Dreamscene video wallpaper app along with the dream packs and 20 more language packs too. When i first saw this news i let a little slack and thought to myself “at least there trying”.

Now if im not mistaken the leaves on the trees are looking quite orange and Autumn’s is begging to settle in and still we have nothing!

I mean seriously did they think we would just forget about that extra cash we forked out? As far as im concerned the only thing we have gained so far is the nice black box it comes in.

So i speak for all the ultimate users out there when i say MICROSOFT GET OF YOUR BEHINDS AND GIVE US OUR MONEYS WORTH!
