Firefox 3.7 and 4.0, with designs changed?

How could version 3.7 and version 4.0 of the Firefox web browser look like? That’s something that the Mozilla development team tried to answer by posting design mockups of Firefox 4 and Firefox 3.7 at the Mozilla Wiki website. Firefox 3.7 is obviously the next major release in the Firefox 3 branch while Firefox 4 will be the next big release at the end of the lifecycle of version 3. A new design can be source of all sorts of problems including usability issues which is probably one of the biggest concerns of Firefox users at this point in time.

The design mockups of Firefox 3.7 look like they are making use of Aero Glass in Windows Vista and Windows 7. The RSS and bookmark icons have been moved out of the Firefox address bar and the two new entries Page and Tools have been added to the header. Page apparently contains functions and options that are directly related to the active page while Tools will be used for changing the UI of the web browser. Tabs are now rounded as well.

They are supposed to fit the looks of 7 and Vista.

BULLSHIT.It'll make it worse, and what's more worse they are thinking about putting the tabs on the top of the window, just like Chrome.Bullshit.Leave it like it is, idiots, it's way better.

I think overall it looks a lot nicer. But like you I'm also against putting tabs right at the top of the window. I find that very annoying in Safari/Chrome. So I hope that's not changed, if it is I hope you have the option of choosing where tabs are placed.

I think the new skin is a lot better than the current one and keeping the tabs up is better for me since that is also why a lot of people have switched to chrome.

I think it looks nice, but like Steam, I don't like the tabs. Probably the thing that pissed me off most about Firefox 3.5. Meh, I'll probably get used to it.
