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?

God, I hate the fad to hide menubars, that Microsoft started.

It's like the slowest, least liked, most uncool kid is doing self mutilation and everybody wants to mimic him.

Menubar may not be a perfect gui widget, but ribbon and the like are far worse.

I agree absolutely. Menus make things easier because it's an outline for everything you can do with the app.
