Mozilla & Gecko clones After a very long development phase, Mozilla has finally officially relased Firefox 4.0. The binaries were already up on the FTP sites yesterday, but today the release became official. Firefox 4.0 packs a heck of a lot of new features, including an entirely new user interface.

"Completely new user interface" is a straight-forward LIE. The only new things are the ability to move tab bar above the location bar and the new Firefox button which actually sucks big time and doesn't work like one could wish.

Another "feature" is disintegration of the UI on Linux...

I wish to add that I really like the tab bar being above location bar, because it makes the browser look more sophisticated.

Things that stayed the same from 3.6: search box, back/forward button. So not completely new but pretty close.
