The Mozilla Foundation has just presented the concept of its new browser, The Firefox Junior, which is a browser designed specifically for the iPad set to be far superior than the built-in Safari browser that comes with all iOS devices.
The Firefox Junior is a full screen browser which has no toolbar, search bar or omnibox. Navigations happens with the help of two transparent buttons located on either side of the screen which let you go back to a page or opens a new page for you to visit a new website.
Alex Limi, product designer of Firefox, says the Junior is the best experience an iPad user can have navigating, and slaps Apple's Safari: "If you look at Safari on the iPad it's a pretty miserable experience, it's still the best browsing experience on a tablet out there, but it's still not very good."
The Mozilla Foundation did not specify when Firefox Junior will be available for consumers, but as the presented browser was just a concept and they said it was, it could take a little while before the Firefox Junior reaches the app store for iPad users.
A video of the presentation is available at air.mozilla.org.
