Mozilla is trying to come up with a next-generation browser, but according to company executives, seems uncertain whether to retain the current Firefox technology or switch to something else, perhaps the same that powers Google’s Chrome.
Last week, Mark Mayo, the head of Mozilla’s cloud services engineering team, revealed that a new project, dubbed Tofino, is exploring options for a radical revision of Firefox.
“We’re working on browser prototypes that look and feel almost nothing like the current Firefox,” Mayo wrote in a long piece on Medium. “The premise for these experiments couldn’t be simpler: what we need a browser to do for us — both on PCs and mobile devices – has changed a lot since Firefox 1.0.”
