Is this the end for tabbed browsing?
Mozilla, the developer of tabbed browsing through Firefox browser, is looking for new ideas which can eliminate the practice of tabbed browsing.
Mozilla is looking for suggestions and ideas from the members of the development community which can remove the tab system in future versions of Firefox.
The company said: “Tabs worked well on slow machines on a thin internet, where ten browser sessions were many browser sessions. Today, 20-plus parallel sessions are quite common; the browser is more of an operating system than a data display application; we use it to manage the web as a shared hard drive.
When the multi tab browsing started it looked to be major improvement for many users instead of using a new window for each open page. But the change in web has begun to push the limits of the tab structure.
Through the Summer Design Challenge programme launched by the company, it is asking developers to examine the problems pertaining with the multi tab browsing system.
The company said that developers interested to participate in the programme need to submit their video and mock-up design before June 21.
