Mozilla & Gecko clones I've seen superlative after superlative concerning the release of Firefox 3.0, and in all honesty, it is making my stomach ache. Yes, Firefox 3.0 is a great release. It has a slicker interface (the UI on Vista looks quite pretty) and the use of native widgets in Linux is a very, very welcome addition. On top of that, it actually delivers what I was craving for the most from my favourite Windows web browser: much improved performance. But does Firefox 3.0 change the web, or alter the way we use the intertubes?

saying firefox3 looks native on linux is almost an insult to kde users ..

Time to lay off the coffee my friend. You seem stressed. I hear your pain though, since I used KDE way back when. I think the move by Fedora and Ubuntu to a more Gnome-centric focus gives Gnome a lot of weight.

A KDE user? It's the tea surely.

In what way? I don't see anything new happening or anything major that's going to make current Windows or OS X users look at it and think "Wow, I'll have to try that". Cut it any way you like but there just isn't much happening, and it matters little that Fedora and Ubuntu have decided to use it.
