Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has already done a lot to clean up the user interface of its successful web browser, but it would seem they're not yet done. As someone who finds the current interface a little... Chaotic and distracting, I'm quite happy with the changes they're currently proposing. They basically pointed at Chrome and said "pretty much that".

Firefox 5.0.1 looked so uncannily like Opera of the current iteration. And of course Opera does get its design cue from Chrome. But I'm sticking with Opera. I've used it from 1996 or so. So far I do like that all browsers are moving towards a more simplified interface. I like clean uncluttered interface.

I feel like Opera's current iteration looks like an alpha version of Firefox 5. You have tabs on top but you can't throw your mouse to the top and click. You have a single button instead of menubar but they have just thrown all menus in it instead of redesigning it for the button.
