Australis is a project to provide Firefox users an updated visual design, streamlined tab strip, new menu and improved customization capabilities. Mozilla is landing the new 'Australis' UI to the Nightly builds of Firefox today.

From Mozilla.org:

 

"Nightly 28 will have Australis, but after uplift (on December 9th) Aurora 28 will not. Nightly 29 will continue to have Australis. It's possible Australis will ride the 29 train through to release with Firefox 29 (April 15th). But we'll be evaluating at each uplift if Australis is ready to ship -- and hold it back again if not."

I've seen some screenshots of Australis UI months ago.

the new UI has been in the pipeline for a really long time, but as usual, Mozilla being Mozilla, they missed their own targets and deadlines to deliver the new UI. Now they're talking about delivering it in version 28, but hopefully this time they actually deliver

It's been out with the special ux built of nightly, and was having some functionality issues for months but it's gotten stable over time and I'm using this built with australis as my default  browser on my mac it's never been set outside of that build though, so this will be the first more public release.

I like the new theme. May be because I like Chrome. :P
