Work on Australis for Linux (Ubuntu) continues with improved visuals
Firefox provides a powerful, solid and reliable web-browsing experience, Ubuntu's default web-browser that presently is undergoing a serious process of visual enrichment.
At the moment, the Firefox developers are working on implementing Australis as the default theme for Firefox, fancy, modern and polished theme introducing classy tabs, rounded corners, pleasant-to-the-eye color contrasts, etc, essentially, a completely new theme for Firefox.
Weeks ago, Mozilla's Mike Conley published an interesting image (via Twitter), presenting the exciting work on Australis for Linux, furthermore, the image clearly showed Australis on Ubuntu's Ambiance.
The mentioned developer has posted another tweet,--described as "Curvy tabs are starting to shape up on Ubuntu"--, where an enhanced version of Australis is exposed.
A definitely interesting aspect of the above-mentioned development effort is the work on detail, meaning, the new image displays properly created corners, thus removing the initial jagged-corners attitude.
