"Mozilla has plans to release the mobile version of their browser, known as Fennec, for Honeycomb-based Android tablet devices later this year. So, the UI for the tablet devices will be similar to the mobile UI but will include many enhancements that will make it more tablet-friendly. Firefox plans to bring a rich, touch-friendly, magazine-like feel to web browsing on these fast-blooming devices.

The focus however, will be to make use of the screen space as much as possible so as to provide a magazine-like feel for which tablets are known for. On the features front, the tablet version will just be the mobile version tweaked to run on the bigger devices. Here are some early mockups of how the final version might look like."
