The video above is a “concept” called Aurora, created by Jesse James Garrett of Adaptive Path. Give it a play and you will see his vision for a very visual immersive, space-age-like environment that is very social.
This isn’t about these concepts though. The Mozila Labs folks have a call for participation:
Today we’re calling on industry, higher education and people from around the world to get involved and share their ideas and expertise as we collectively explore and design future directions for the Web.
You don’t have to be a software engineer to get involved, and you don’t have to program. Everyone is welcome to participate. We’re particularly interested in engaging with designers who have not typically been involved with open source projects. And we’re biasing towards broad participation, not finished implementations.
We’re hoping to lower the barrier to participation by providing a forum for surfacing, sharing, and collaborating on new ideas and concepts. Our goal is to bring even more people to the table and provoke thought, facilitate discussion, and inspire future design directions for Firefox, the Mozilla project, and the Web as a whole.
Time to get creative and put on your inventor hat. Maybe your idea can get into Firefox?
