At first glance, the changes it brings to the Australis make look like Chrome a bit more, to simplify a bit the and make it simpler.

The menu offers cut / paste, resize web view, view the history, start private browsing, go to settings and others.

Unlike Chrome, when you open many windows tabs do not shrink until you can not see the icons of each, but set a minimum width for the tab, and then added a scroll to see you reached the maximum than fit on the screen.

Also added a possibility to customize the browser, trying to ease the current options. By clicking on the “customize” menu, opens an interface drag-and-drop to change the order of buttons, inserting or removing icons, etc..

Australis integrated changes will appear in the rapid update cycle built for Firefox, so it will not all at once, but in stages.
