Mozilla is at work on a sweeping Firefox redesign. 

According to TechCrunch, which spoke at length with Mozilla engineer Jonathan Nightingale, the new browser design is being developed under the name Australis (a theme that first surfaced last summer). Australis, as others have noted, bears a passing resemblance to Google's popular Chrome browser – there are the same rounded tabs, the same clean and spare layout, the same hyper-customizable interface. 


The Firefox development team, writes Frederic Lardinois of TechCrunch, is working on a set-up that will allow users to "rearrange and remove virtually all the parts of the Firefox interface to suit their needs."
