    Okay, so nice to know its not a joke. But that looks shockingly similar to Chrome! I can't imagine why Mozilla should do this!

    As long as they don't cut the features that make Firefox better than Chrome, I don't care. In particular, the ability to have Bookmarks as a sidebar is essential for me.

    I have used it on one of my Ubuntu machines and in my experience it is much faster then Chrome, however Chrome for linux sucks so bad and for that reason I cannot speak on the Windows side as I only use FF.

    Many people feel it looks like chrome cause of the tabs even though Mozilla has been using those style tabs in Thunderbird for probably close to two years. The one thing it still has over chrome is more customizable menus and bars, prefer the menu layout and renders my college website far better then chrome.

    Only thing lacking is the ability to use small icons and buttons.
