Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox is receiving yet another interface overhaul. Dubbed Australis, the new UI (and UX) will span, embrace, and unify the desktop, tablet, and smartphone versions of Firefox." I like the Metro one - very curious to see what Chrome has up its sleeve for Metro.

I haven't found these thumbnail top site view that useful. It was cool in safari for about a day and then the charm went away.

There is nothing wrong with a lists. Just because the tile seems the be the new pharaoh in town, does not mean you need to chisel off every list from every UI in an attempt to remove hierarchical lists from living memory. Sometimes they are more efficient to parse. These tiled interfaces get tedious when they insist on showing large lists as a half dozen tiles per view. I don't enjoy having to page endlessly through screen after screen. I know... all the trendy UI designers find lists to be boring. Well, that is because they are... compact, information free of extraneous crap often is. But it is also efficient.
