    Mozilla has released teaser screenshots of Firefox for tablets, providing a look at the user interface in the upcoming web browser.

    "Firefox for tablets is an evolution of its phone-based predecessor, with some added enhancements that take advantage of a tablet's larger screen size," Ian Barlow, visual designer for the Firefox mobile team, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday. "The Mozilla Mobile Team is working tirelessly to make Firefox awesome on tablets."

    Few details of the overall browser were revealed, but Barlow did post some shots of the UI in its current stage of development.

  • Firefox for tablets design theme

    Barlow said that the work-in-progress Firefox for tablets browser "looks right at home on Honeycomb 3.0" and that it draws its overall theme from Honeycomb's "minimalist design language".

    However, it retains notable Firefox design features, such as the oversized 'back' button.

  • Awesome bar in Firefox for tablets

    Firefox for tablets will also retain the 'awesome bar'. This provides a single place to enter a search of the internet, bookmarks, history, data synced from other computers, or web addresses.

    In addition, it will still allow people to access bookmarks, history and synced activity. However, the tabs for each category have been moved from the top to the left-hand side of the browser. This provides more screen room to display search results if there is an on-screen keyboard.
