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.

Now that you mention it, Mozilla always had kinda communist leanings ;P ...especially in their imagery / promotional images, often almost socialist realist in style. ;)


According to messages on Mozilla Input, the Australis redesign was indeed a communist plot:

It is also a conspiracy of Nazis and German gays:

...who, apparently, were working together with the Jews:

Who'd have guessed the awful truth that lay concealed behind that seemingly friendly and cuddly dragon...?
