Firefox 4, no thanks

The Firefox 4 upgrade campaign is under way, but since I don’t like what they have done with the UI I’ll be sticking with 3.6 for as long as possible.

They removed the statusbar with it it’s handy download progress indicator and replaced it with another bar that looks exactly like the bar it replaces, only with less features. Why not just hide the statusbar by default?

Not only did they remove useful features, they now ignore the visual styles and don’t care about the native look on XP:

…and don’t get me started on the tabs-on-top fad.

    Agree 100%. Don’t understand why developers ruin a perfectly good UI just for sake of change.
