Tabs in Firefox for tablets
In landscape mode, Firefox for tablets uses the additional screen space on the left to display the tabs marking open web pages, rather than tucking the tabs away.
When used in portrait mode, the tabs are incorporated into a single drop-down menu at the top, to provide maximum browsing space below, Barlow said.
Firefox is not the only tablet project being developed by Mozilla at the moment. In July, the foundation outlined preliminary plans to use the Gecko browser engine as the basis for a lightweight open-source operating system that can eventually be used on phones and tablets.
