first_imgThanks in part to a much more rapid release schedule and the introduction of browser channels (a la Google Chrome), Firefox development is moving ahead faster than ever before. The Web has become an extremely competitive place in recent years, and Mozilla is determined to make sure it remains a dominant player for years to come.Sometimes it’s helpful to look at what your competitors are doing to see what might make a good addition to your own product, and you could certainly argue that’s what the Mozilla Labs team has done with LessChrome HD (pun intended?). Like Google Chrome’s recently-added compact navigation interface, LessChrome HD is all about thinning down the browser UI to its minimal best without sacrificing too much functionality. The new add-on was born from another Mozilla Labs project, Home Dash, which also spawned the discovery-focused AwesomeBar HD.Unlike Google’s take, Mozilla has implemented a nice touch which addresses the security concerns many have with the removal of a browser’s address bar. Chrome currently doesn’t show the Omnibar unless a user specifically invokes it. With LessChrome HD in Firefox, the address bar is shown whenever a tab is activated. After a few seconds, the bar autohides and gives users a few additional pixels of reading room. It’s a subtle tweak, but one which ensures a user can still see the big, green button acknowledging an SSL-encrypted connection — and that no domain tomfoolery is being perpetrated.If you’d like to try out LessChrome HD, head over to the Firefox add-ons site and install it. It’s compatible with Firefox 4-6 (Aurora and Nightly users are free to play), and the install is even restart-free.More at Mozilla Labslast_img read more
