Mozilla & Gecko clones We've already talked about the proposed interface changes for Firefox 3.7 (and 4.0) which are coming to the Windows platform. However, those were anything-goes sketches, and now it seems as if the team has more or less settled on what Firefox 3.7 will look like on Windows. I'll reserve final judgement until I have used it, but my first thought was: who littered all these different widgets all over the place?

Well Considered.

I find the new UI to be modern and well-considered. I'd rather have polished new UI elements 'everywhere' than text or ugly old icons.

Further, I'm not thrilled that the article is so opinionated against the UI – it'd be a shame if sites like OSNews pressured Firefox into adopting something not as good.

Articles should be less slanted when it comes to issues like this.

So it would be a shame that *users* pressioned(?) Mozilla to make Firefox look how they actually want instead of how UI designers want it to be? Where's feedback?
