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?

I have not read the article at eweek but I guess the "revolution" was not in appearance or browsing, but in design of web application.
The revolution is in offline mode, Canvas to design pretty web interfaces or games, SQLite to store data locally and so one.

But to see the revolution you have to wait developpers have built applications that make profit of that. They can not do it before the browser - the platform - was in final version.
