Mozilla gave users a glimpse of its new search interface for Firefox this week, revealing one-click searches.
The revamped Firefox will feature an improved, more organized search suggestion design with an array of buttons below to offer users alternative search suggestions. The buttons permit users to find the term they are searching for more easily on their site of choice.
“How often have you done a web search, already knowing that you would click the first result that looked like a Wikipedia page?” writes Mozilla’s Philipp Sackl. “Quite often? Then Firefox is about to make your life easier. With the new one click searches, you can instantly find what you are looking for across the Web.
“We are shipping Firefox with a set of pre-installed search engines that are tailored to your language. You can easily show and hide them in your search preferences.”
Mozilla has also made the new Firefox interface customizable to better fits its users’ needs.
Users can add additional search engines to their one-click searches be it a dictionary site, a parenting site or a site for Web developers.
There are, it seems, a lot of changes going on at Mozilla of late.
Just last week Mozilla announced Yahoo would become the default search engine on Firefox in the U.S. beginning next month, ending Google’s decade-long partnership with the firm.
The companies have struck a five-year partnership in which a new Yahoo Search experience will be introduced to Firefox users in the U.S. It will feature a modern new interface and will also support Do Not Track (DNT).
Although Yahoo will be the default search engine, Firefox will continue to offer built-in as alternate search options including Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Amazon, Twitter and Wikipedia.
