Mozilla & Gecko clones

Firefox 29 has been released, and the most prominent new feature is an entirely new user interface. It's smoother and less angular, and has clearly been designed to somewhat resemble Google Chrome. Hence, I personally think it's a major step forward - except for Firefox' version of the Chrome menu, which uses a grid of icons instead of a list (?!) - but I'm nearly 100% convinced many Firefox users will not like it. It's change, after all.

Luckily, Firefox is customisable to the point of insanity, so I'm pretty sure you can revert to the old look with the right themes and extensions.

IMO new UI is much worse then the old one.


I took a quick glance at the comments and it looks like I'm pretty much the only one who doesn't hate the new UI. I think it looks just fine, the change to what I had before is pretty small and I don't think it's to the worse. Some of the icons changed place and the menu is now easier to grasp at a quick glance -- not really worth all the outcry, IMHO.

Oh well..
