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.

A key advantage to XUL is the ability to provide a standardized user interface across platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac) with minimal effort.

My lengthy userChrome.css file begs to differ. XUL's GTK+ emulation is atrocious: custom fonts aren't picked up properly, menubar and inactive tab text colours are wrong with most themes, toolbars have heavy padding and the less said about the Vista-esque Library and download manager UIs, the better.
