This is What Firefox 4.0 Could Look Like

Last week we got a sneak peek at some possible interface changes that we could see in Firefox 3.7, which showed definite influence from Google's Chrome browser.

Today designer Stephen Horlander showed of some more interface concepts that we might see when Firefox 4.0 rolls around.

"These are not final," Horlander declared once again on the webpage. "They are only for brainstorming [and] exploration."

Like with the Firefox 3.7 mockups, the minimalist but functional design of Chrome is crawling into the Mozilla camp.

    I like it. The lack of a title bar, and menu bar really sets it aside from that sterile "windows" look.

    The first one look more IE than Chrome, but the second one is SO Chrome.

    I think that the more web browsers that take after Chrome, the better. It's an excellent browser.

    The way they implemented the tabs on top in the 2nd picture doesn't look hot though. Reminds me of Safari 4 Beta's clunky UI rather than Chrome's sleek one.
