New design highlights the tab button better
So far, the currently open tab was linked to the navigation bar. With the Proton design, the corresponding surface is better emphasized. In addition, the corners were slightly rounded and thus designed more modern.

Users have to activate a flag option
The experimental versions can be downloaded and installed from this page. After the installation the browser should be started and “about: config” should be entered in the address bar of the browser. Here “browser.proton.tabs.enabled” should be set to “true”.
The browser then only has to be restarted to see the new design elements.
Of course, the revised tab bar is not the only new feature that will be found in the Proton design. Mozilla plans to adapt the address bar, the main menu, the info bars, the context menus and other elements of the browser.
The changes should then be integrated into the final version with the update to Firefox 89.
