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?

My argument would be that it looks like crap in KDE with the same settings that FF2 looked OK with. I don't really care much since I use firefox as a backup for when konqueror doesn't render a page correctly, but the FF3 UI definitely looks bad on both linux boxen I have it installed on. Looks fine on windows XP where FF is my browser of choice, though.

Then install a GTK theme that looks good on KDE? There are plenty of them.

It isn't the theme, it's how tabs and menus render. I use qtcurve and everything else looks good if not great. Again, FF2 looked fine, FF3 looks ungood.
