Firefox OS' new interface looks both very modern and very familiar

Mozilla promised that Firefox OS was getting a gigantic interface redesign later this year, and it's now clear just how ambitious that remake will be. Ahmed Nefzaoui and Soren Hentzchel have provided a detailed look at Firefox OS 2.0 that shows off its thoroughly modern style. There are flat surfaces everywhere, and even more transparency than in current versions; both the lock screen notifications and task switcher have taken on a decidedly iOS 7-like (not to mention more useful) layout. The preview also gives a better glimpse at EverythingMe's contextual search, which produces both app and web results. You'll still have to wait a few months to see 2.0 reach shipping hardware, but this close-up suggests that your patience will pay off.
