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.

Surely it means precisely the opposite? People are free to agree or disagree with your point of view, and can show this by voting a post up or down respectively. It just seems in this case that the majority disagree. Just because your opinion is in the minority doesn't automatically mean the majority are against free speech. It just means the majority have the same freedom of speech as you.

You're not trying to suggest that those who disagree with your opinion are not entitled to express this?
