Mozilla dishes up teasers for concept browser

New dawn please

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Mozilla Labs is inviting industry wonks, higher education types and ordinary bods to contribute ideas on its new concept browser, Aurora.

The outfit behind popular open source browser Firefox wants people to get involved in its “Concept Series” project, looking at shaping the future design of web technologies.

Mozilla Labs has buddied up with San Francisco-based Adaptive Path, the firm behind the recent redesign of the MySpace website, to create the Aurora browser.

Anyone can put forward ideas, mockups or prototypes to the project, said Mozilla, which earlier this week released design and interface teasers for people to play with and adapt.

There is one caveat for individuals hoping to make a fast buck from their contribution: it wants all concepts and related source materials to be freely redistributed under either a Creative Commons licence (ideas and mockups) or the Mozilla Public Licence (prototypes).

“We're hoping to lower the barrier to participation by providing a forum for surfacing, sharing, and collaborating on new ideas and concepts,” said Mozilla.

“Our goal is to bring even more people to the table and provoke thought, facilitate discussion, and inspire future design directions for Firefox, the Mozilla project, and the Web as a whole.”
