Mozilla & Gecko clones Today, Mozilla released the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0. After a period of what I would call stagnation, the Mozilla team are back on track with delivering interesting UI concepts. They were sensible enough to copy Chrome's excellent tabs-on-top UI, but have now also added something called Panorama, a new and very interesting way of managing your open tabs.

I like this feature a lot in fact I had the same idea already. Except in my version it would replace Tabs. This is why Mozilla needs to make a new skunkworks browser, so they can just drop needless interface elements without existing users getting upset.

Right now the only real problem with Firefox is the use of XUL and Javascript for the interface. I think any interface built using a scripting language is going to have the kinds of freezing/stalling Firefox has.
