Mozilla To Make Junior Browser for iPad

Arguably, the most overlooked application in your computer or your mobile device (whether it be a tablet or a smartphone) is the browser. A browser has become so ubiquitous and such an integral part of surfing the internet that it is usually overlooked. It’s that app that is there, but is not there. I bet you just mindlessly open the browser of your choice, use it, then then close it without thinking about the browser itself and how it is the vehicle towards accessing the world wide web.

If you’ve been paying attention to browsers then you may have noticed that browsers on mobile devices need some tweaking to become more efficient and seamless with these new devices. Fortunately, app developers have been thinking about browsers, after all. The Mozilla Product Design Strategy team recently announced that one of its new projects is the development of a webkit browser for the iPad. This new browser will be called Junior.

The Junior browser pays attention to the environment for which it is being developed. First, it won’t have any tabs or search bars (presumably to more efficiently utilize the small screen real estate). What it will be built with is the recognition of gestures and a simple UI that, it is hoped, will change the way people browse the web on these devices. Junior will only have three buttons, the forward button, the back button and a plus button that, when pressed, will show the list of sites recently visited, the bookmarks and a search bar.

Aside from this information no specific date has been given for the release of the Junior browser at the App Store.
