It is being reinvented to fit the iPad form factor

Coming soon to the iPad is the newest creation from Mozilla: Junior. Still in it’s prototype stage, it is set to join other third-party alternatives like Atomic, Dolphin, Mercury, Opera Mini, and Skyfire reports The Verge.

The focus behind Junior is to reduce the clutter, & make the browsing experience fill up the entire screen of the iPad. There are no tabs. It has only two buttons: a plus symbol, & a back button. These buttons expand to reveal other functions, for instance, refresh or print. The rest of the functions can be discovered using finger gestures.

The browser is not going to be available anytime soon, for many of the functions are missing. It is very much in its early stages of the development process.

It is understood that Mozilla wants to make an on impact the iOS platform. And it may happen sooner than one may think – it is rumored that Google is already working on making a Chrome version for the iOS too. Let the fun times begin!
