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".

Most of the browsers out there took many design cues from Opera. Most notable is multi-modal interface. Tabs if you will. Nowadays everybody seem to want to emulate Chrome. Oh well to each his own. I'm an Opera guy...

I tried that mdi interface and really didn't like it. When Phoenix introduced tabs I loved it and never looked back.
If you 'invent' a feature that doesn't get used by a lot of people can you still demand credit for it? If you take an existing feature and improve it to the point where it becomes extremely popular should you share your credit with the previous 'inventor'?

I actually don't understand your point but that's ok. Truthfully speaking I don't care who does what first or credits where credits' due. I've been using Opera for a very long time and I'm happy with the progress that they've made so far. Chrome is the new shiny toy but I love my trusty old toy more and Firefox seem to be lumbering nowadays, while IE starting to look sexy again. I don't care much about Safari.
