Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has already done a lot to clean up the user interface of its successful web browser, but it would seem they're not yet done. As someone who finds the current interface a little... Chaotic and distracting, I'm quite happy with the changes they're currently proposing. They basically pointed at Chrome and said "pretty much that".

The mockups are stunning whether or not they become reality. Practically why go through the trouble of doing new UX testing when Google has already done theirs (as long as they don't copy the ever shrinking tabs of chrome ;)

After looking at about:config and doing some rough math, my Firefox has ~2000 settings; this interface hides that complexity nicely.

about:config show only half of them. The rest have defaults and are enabled only when the value is not the default.
