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?

"Frankly I'm sick of the "it has extensions, it can do anything attidute". I only want mouse gestures, and Firefox doesn't have an extension that actually works all the time (which is the whole purpose of mouse gestures)."

That's what's keeping you from using FF? Have you ever heard of throwing the baby out with the bathwater? Of course, you could always go back to using IE and it's extensions.
