Mozilla & Gecko clones

Firefox 29 has been released, and the most prominent new feature is an entirely new user interface. It's smoother and less angular, and has clearly been designed to somewhat resemble Google Chrome. Hence, I personally think it's a major step forward - except for Firefox' version of the Chrome menu, which uses a grid of icons instead of a list (?!) - but I'm nearly 100% convinced many Firefox users will not like it. It's change, after all.

Luckily, Firefox is customisable to the point of insanity, so I'm pretty sure you can revert to the old look with the right themes and extensions.

That was in text mode, in graphics mode you had 4. It don't change the fact that so many UI designers seem to be huffing the same can of paint and trying to turn UI 2014 into AOL 96...ugh AOL 86 was ugly in 96, why so many hipster designers want to go back to that flat shaded fugly?
