IconYou may have thought Mozilla could not open up beyond its current state, but you may be wrong: Aza Raskin, Mozilla Labs' UX Lead and Sebastiaan de With, a freelance icon designer, have completely opened up the process of designing a new logo for Mozilla Ubiquity. The second round of conceptual exploration has just started, and the popular vote is very welcome on the blog or in the comments. What's your favorite concept, and why?

Mozilla Ubiquity can only explained by a video. Here we go:


Ubiquity for Firefox from Aza Raskin on Vimeo.

I must say that this is one of those projects that falls under the umbrella of a true "aha erlebnis". If Mozilla can pull this one off, this will be a massive, massive selling point for Firefox. Extend this to native applications as well, and I'm sold, where can I place my orders, I'm going to kiss the people who made this.

As for the logo contest, I'm not seeing any clear winners, but this is a project that doesn't deserve to have the attention focused on something as insignificant as the logo.
