The design continues the keep the elements of the smaller-screen smartphone version, with tab switching that is accessed bu pulling out from the left side and other options that can be accessed by pulling from the right side. The bigger screen adds forward and backward navigation buttons, an address bar, and buttons for reloading and bookmarking. Firefox on smartphones is well underway, so Mozilla are now beginning to focus on Android-based tablets, in particular, Honeycomb.

Mozilla is banking on Android as a way to keep its browser relevant in the fast-growing mobile world.
