I’m not pleased with the changes introduced with Firefox 2.0
- Instead of getting better, Firefox just got fatter and slower (more and more reminding of a fat, dumb Mozilla than an agile and smart fox)
- The new default theme mimics the silly Windows Vista look with all the glares, the blurry “Web 2.0” (sic!) edges, borders and icons.
- Although a good thing from a didactic point of view, having “close” buttons on each tab is very unhandy: It takes too much valuable horizontal space, it’s more likely that one accidentally closes a tab instead of selecting it, it doesn’t improve usability as one could always close a tab by clicking on it with the middle mouse button, the very handy button on the right of the tab bar is now missing.
I’ve downgraded to Firefox 1.5 again.
