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?

Actually it feels like Mozilla guys are lost their programmers in favor of PR guys. They make great overhyped commercials and forget about browser itself. FF3 does not fill consistent, it is more like a bunch of features ripped from extensions and implemented as native code without thinking of how to make them live together in a nice way. And they don't go forward, just repeat steps of other browsers. When did you see some feature in FF that would blow your mind? I don't remember anything.

I think they should stop promoting browser and start working on it, start listening to users. And not only to FF users, but to users of other browsers. They should rethink what they do and how, sit down all together and think how to make a browser more usable, less relying on extensions and more powerfull for one thing - browsing!
