Mozilla has shown off ideas for future versions of Firefox as it becomes less of a traditional browser and more of a “soft, friendly, human” ecosystem. Slides released on the web hint at a new desktop environ with a simplified menu, cleaner download interface, and a more functional startpage — all the while maintaining the same curved-edge look as the mobile variant.

There's no word when Mozilla's so-called Kilimanjaro project will come to fruition, but you can check out the slideshow after the break for an early glimpse.
