Mozilla & Gecko clones Today, Mozilla released the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0. After a period of what I would call stagnation, the Mozilla team are back on track with delivering interesting UI concepts. They were sensible enough to copy Chrome's excellent tabs-on-top UI, but have now also added something called Panorama, a new and very interesting way of managing your open tabs.

The fact that you can tweak the interface more easily, hence the huge number of addons. Yes, there are lots of addons that change the default way Firefox looks and behaves.

Yes, I know there are many. Are any of them popular? Do any of the really improve the interface significantly?

If say pandronic was a XUL using firefox add on that the community had built, and everyone always added because it made everything so much better, then I'd say yes XUL is awesome! See how some one with an idea for an improvement did it, without having to be a C, c++ expert!

Most people I know only have a default interface for firefox with maybe a toolbar or two.


Is XUL really required for a tool bar? Does it make writing a tool bar easier?
