Last week, Mozilla’s Product Design Strategy team quietly announced a few new projects including something called Junior, a Webkit browser for the iPad with no tabs or search bars. Instead, it uses simple gestures and a simplified UI to change the way we work with the web.
To browse the web you press one of three buttons – forward, back, and a plus that displays a list of recent sites, bookmarks, and a search bar. The rest of the page is pure web.
You can watch the whole video presentation here and Junior appears at about 30 minutes in.
The group is also working on Search Tabs, a feature that displays search results from multiple sites, and Presence that allows you to communicate with friends and family on the web.
