On iOS, there are many third party options available via Apple’s App Store. Apple’s Safari which comes with iOS, Atomic, Dolphin, Opera Mini, etc. However, one name that was surprisingly missing was Mozilla. So far the company has only offered an iPhone app that allows users to sync tabs from a PC or Mac to your device.
Last week, Mozilla Product Design Strategy announced that the team is working on a few projects including something called Junior. Junior is a Webkit browser for the iPad with no tabs or search. This browser is operated via simple gestures and a simplified UI, which changes the way we use the web.
Browsing the web is pretty simple. You press one of the three buttons – forward, back, and a plus that displays a list of recent sites, bookmarks, and a search bar. Everything else on the page is the web.
In addition, the team is also working on adding two new features called Search Tabs and Presence. Search Tabs is a feature that will display search results from multiple sites. Presence allows users to communicate with friends and family on the web.
