A lot of people have been asking what our plans are for introducing an iconic form, which was discussed in my previous post The Shape of Things to Come?
Before the code freeze for Beta 3 next week, we are going to land one of the shapes we are considering, which we are calling Keyhole, in the Proto theme for OS X and the new version of our Windows theme. Here is a wireframe of the form:
Firefox 3 Beta 3 will also include revised versions of many of the icons being designed for our new Windows theme by the Iconfactory. The OS X theme Proto will land on land on trunk (we probably need to rename it since it isn’t a prototype theme anymore). Linux has been featuring a native look and feel for awhile now, but the Linux theme will be getting some improvements as well for Beta 3.
