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?

The OSX skin looks *horrid*. The Windows skin looks good, but not as good as the old one IMO. Oh well.

The thing that stinks is, there's no skin that either 1) looks like FF2 or 2) looks like FF3 Windows, that works on OSX/FF3. Go figure.

I also thought the 'awesomebar' changes weren't so nice. At least provide an option to go back to the classic functionality!

I'm keeping FF2 until they discontinue support. Hopefully by then there'll be better skins and a good way to revert the new 'awesomebar' functionality.


What the heck is wrong with the 'awesome bar' - this pathetic whining is becoming as bad as people who senselessly bash Windows Vista. I've used the 'awesomebar' and its nice to be able to quickly find the last topic I replied to in a given forum - some of us actually do like to have conversations rather than just firing off a random post to a given story then ignore all the follow up replies.

Is it actually possible for you to write a post without being insulting? Just because someone doesn't like a certain new feature because it doesn't work right, it doesn't mean they're pathetic.

The Awesome Bar simply doesn't work right yet. It's gotten a lot better during the test releases, but still, many times it simply gives the wrong search returns where the previous, old fashioned url-only thing would've done just fine. That's a legitimate complaint I'm reading all over the web.
