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?

sit down all together and think how to make a browser more usable, less relying on extensions and more powerfull for one thing - browsing!


Contradiction in ideas there.

Mozilla has made the core browser better and faster.

The way that you make the browser more usable for the vast variety of users is ... to rely on extensions for the fancy UI bits. That way one user who might like it this way ... and another user who likes it some other (contradictory) way can both be satisfied.
