Apple’s decision to offer the iPad with the Webkit on iOS as the sole browser option has not deterred browser giants Mozilla from trying to shoe in with a simple product for the famous tablet. According to sources, Mozilla is hard at work trying to develop a Webkit-based browser called Junior that features a new user interface by shunning the regulatory URL bar. In the name of simplicity, a secondary level of the browser’s functions has been pushed into one and users will be allowed to have multiple windows at one go. The iPad browser thus would be a whole new kind of browser in terms of design.
Rumors circulating on the blogosphere reveal that the new browser will offer a far simpler design with the right and left edge of the screen's lower section featuring two button overlays when the user is interacting with the browser’s main window. To enter a new URL, launch a new search, open bookmarks and view recently opened pages, the right button would need to be pressed. For functions, reload, forward and other added functions, a long press on the left button is needed. This layout, according to Mozilla, would make navigating a browser far simpler for the average iPad user. For now there is no word on when the new browser would be available for download and what other functions this new browser is expected to offer.
