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?

It already works in Vista with any application...Or are we talking about something different?

Regarding Firefox's new interface, I don't understand the author complaints...If you look closely at the screen shot, both Firefox and Chrome have the same GUI elements, they're just laid out differently. What does Firefox GUI has that Chrome doesn't? What widgets is the author talking about? Seriously...

As for me, I'm very pleased with the new interface, even if I would have preferred the location bar underneath the tab bar, like in Opera. The "Page" and "Tools" drop-down menus would be better if they were icons-only.

No it doesn't. Here's how you can tell:

Open firefox and a bunch of tabs
Open Internet Explorer 8 with a bunch of tabs

Hover your mouse over the firefox icon in your taskbar, only the active tab shows up

Hover your mouse over the ie icon in your taskbar, all tabs appear and you're allowed to choose your tab from there.

If IE doesn't show this, to to Internet Options -> General->Tabs Settings and check "Show previews for individual tabs in the taskbar"
