All modern chromium browsers have animations when opening tab view and gestures like closing a tab with a swipe (instead a small close button on ff). I'd love to see some animations and use of gestures on Firefox android.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
I use Chromium browsers on mobile and the gestures to open/manage tabs are much more intuitive than Firefox. I hope we get more gestures.
