Check 'em out here and here. Anyone else think there's a definite Chrome influence in the possible new design? Looks good, though.
I like it. Definitely a chrome, uh, influence. It is funny. If you open up chrome and safari 4, you will notice a strong resemblance as well. It will be interesting to see how opera and IE will look in a few years.
Oh God. I'm turning automatic updates off.
(No seriously, enough pointless visual interface changes; they don't make any difference to functionality, aren't any better, waste time developing, and annoy the crap out of my every time I have to get used to the next arbitrary change. The only thing saving the world at large my bastard overlord villain rage is the Full Fullscreen extension. It can't annoy me if I ONLY VIEW THE WEBPAGE. AHAHAHAHAHA. Now back to my remote controlled, mass stir fry eliminator. That's right, next website I personally view to redesign. We'll see how many fashion conscious websurfers you attract without your honey mustard chicken!)
I do like it, it looks much better than the current version (3.5) that I am using.
Also, I do not think it is a waste of time to just change the interface of the web browser. There are people like me who will not use a web browser unless it looks nice. The older versions of IE were absolutely ugly, which is really the only reason I switched to FireFox in the first place.
I hope they will come out with a design similar to what they are previewing, if not even better.
What is the deal with Chrome and now FF removing the "home" button? I hated the fact that Google Chrome didn't have a "home" button. I actually use that button quite a bit, and it was quite annoying not having one.
I hope FireFox doesn't also remove their home button.
To be honest, I still hate that the tabs are below the URL bar -- given that the URL bar is an essential, individual part of each tab. Chrome got it right the first time; this design seems to just copy that logic and do so unsuccessfully
These look like nice themes for firefox, however I wonder how they will affect me as a mac user. I really liked the latest firefox update (3.5) because of the speed improvements. I hope 3.7 can bring more great improvements.
The new UI is, so far, only being made for Windows to integrate better with Vista and 7. The Mac version already integrates decently IMO so it's about time they made things shiny and transparent (not that there aren't addons for that).
Edit: I started messing around with some extensions and found some that kind of resemble the new mockups
Go back too what FireFox was, it's getting slower with each release! l remember Firebird 0.6, loved the updates, been since 2, it's SLOW.
l love my current add-ons, and persona's is awesome, but l skipped 3.5 after beta testing it and left on 3.0.12 till current release. l don't want too leave firefox, but it seems they just care for "sleek" looks now.
I'll love anything FF thoughs at me.
But it should have plugins suport at the firt few weeks. I hate when My favourite (popular) plugins are not suported by new FF releses
This FF 3.5 is stillnot suported by Tab Mix Plus
So I revereted back to 3.12 just to use Tab mix. I cant live withought those plugins. The whole point of me using FF is the amazing cuztomisability provided through addons.
I'll just keep on using my classic compact theme... 0 wasted space, so there's more room for the web page I'm actually trying to look at.
Did they take out the toolbar in those mock-ups? That's about the biggest thing I hate about IE7+. Sure you can re-enable it, but it doesn't fit in nicely. And on most computers it's disabled, and you have to hit alt first to show it.
I kind of like the menu, but I guess it isn't too necessary and could be combined to the single item. I do think that they should keep the bookmark toolbar because I find it comes in handy for the several sites I frequently visit. Does look pretty cool though
I'm glad it's only for the windows version. Don't like it at all.
Looks cool so far...
I love the look that Firefox has and I really enjoy how it looks running Vista. I hope they continue make better versions of Firefox.
Some dedicated fan made a theme for current released based on the 3.7 mockups.
I think it looks good.
But not too much of a difference though
Yes, but one needs several other things in order to have an identical look:
go to downloadsquad.com
it works, I tried it myself
i like those tabs. Look clean and are not vulnerable to click-throughs. I guess they are trying to include tab crash recovery with it.
Mozilla has released Mockups of what version 4.0 might look like - they're even more chromelicious, have a look:
They show the different reload/stop button styles too.
Wow That is SOooooo Kool
Hope they solve this memory issue that FF have. A lot of people do not want their Browser sucking all the system memory
It's 2010, still no official 3.7
