The Next Release of Firefox Will Look Similar to Chrome

By Jamie Condliffe on at

A Mozilla developer working on the next release of Firefox has created a test build of the next-generation browser that anyone can download—and the new styling, known as Australis, features curved tabs which make it look just like Chrome.

In fact, in Mozilla's new browser it's only the active tab which is rendered as a curved tab—the rest disappear into the background. But there's no denying that Mozilla has taken Chrome's most distinctive graphic element and run with it.

It's not clear when the official release will be available, but it's possible to download the preliminary build—just for use on Windows—now. [Ars Technica]
