Mozilla Labs Design Challenge Summer 09 Best in Class

A couple of months ago, I blogged about the Mozilla Labs Design Challenge Summer 09. This was Mozilla Labs’ sponsored competition that aimed to reinvent and reimagine the tabs in browsers.

The competition raised the question : Reinventing Tabs in the Browser – How can we create, navigate and manage multiple web sites within the same browser instance?” And several groups heeded the call and proposed solutions. Here are the very interesting design submissions that got the Best in Class:

There was also a People’s Choice award and it was given to CubeZilla.

Among the Best in Class awardees, I personally like the Wave Concept. Here’s the video of the presentation of the Wave Concept:

Looks very interesting and I like the preview aspect of it. It’s like a remix version of tabs and the “Speed Dial” feature in Chrome and Opera. 😀
