Firefox for Android tablets gets side tabs, more

Mozilla's Ian Barlow gave a preview of a long sought after tablet-native version of Firefox for Android. The new version is native to Android 3 and takes advantage of the widescreen OS to change the interface depending on the layout. In portrait, it turns the browser tabs into a menu; in landscape, they unfold in a side strip with visual thumbnails of each page.

The revamp also has an upgraded "awesomebar" that provides an easier view of addresses and searches along with side tabs for browsing its results. Mozilla is promising a theme more consistent with the holographic look of Android 3 without breaking from Firefox tradition.

Development is still young for the new version, which doesn't have a go-live date.
