Mozilla & Gecko clones I've seen superlative after superlative concerning the release of Firefox 3.0, and in all honesty, it is making my stomach ache. Yes, Firefox 3.0 is a great release. It has a slicker interface (the UI on Vista looks quite pretty) and the use of native widgets in Linux is a very, very welcome addition. On top of that, it actually delivers what I was craving for the most from my favourite Windows web browser: much improved performance. But does Firefox 3.0 change the web, or alter the way we use the intertubes?

OSX skin

The OSX skin looks *horrid*. The Windows skin looks good, but not as good as the old one IMO. Oh well.

The thing that stinks is, there's no skin that either 1) looks like FF2 or 2) looks like FF3 Windows, that works on OSX/FF3. Go figure.

I also thought the 'awesomebar' changes weren't so nice. At least provide an option to go back to the classic functionality!

I'm keeping FF2 until they discontinue support. Hopefully by then there'll be better skins and a good way to revert the new 'awesomebar' functionality.
