Firefox needs more Metro like themes. Not ugly rounded corners.

That is hideous.

And the similarities would be what exactly? Australis is clean and simple, just because the tabs are curved doesn't make much difference to me.

neoplanet could be "clean" in the same way this is "clean"

Am I seeing something different when I see Australis pics compared to other people? It looks like a modern browser with curved tabs. That's it.

I don't think you understand, curved tabs will be the death of firefox.

any browser can look like a modern browser, neoplanet had a customizeable interface and you could strip it down like this.

 

For me curved tabs is annoying because it reduces the amount of tabs I can have up, especially with firefox stupid scrolling tabs. Already dislike how the new Opera loses the favicons when you get to many tabs, while on the old opera I could have as many tabs as I wanted and not lose the favicon.

What Neoplanet could have looked like wasn't really the point, as it looks nothing like Australis. And since it's customizable as you say, then it could be stripped down to look like Chrome and IE as well, right? So your comparison makes no sense.

 

As for the way Firefox handles tabs, that just goes on to show how different people like different things. Personally, Firefox scrolling tabs > the way Chrome handles it, for instance.

 

Either way, people have been saying the same things about Firefox ever since version 4 came out, so it has died 20 times since then, oh and guess what -- lots of people still like it and use it.

It's also ridiculously flexible in how it's done too, say Tab Mix Plus for example. Scrolling, multiple rows, groups, whatever, it's got your preferences covered.

Question for Firefox users who have been following Australis development: Why does 'Add-ons' have a faded tab in this screenshot?

Thats the mouse-highlight effect (when you mouse over a tab)

I actually really love the look of the new opera, IMO its the best looking desktop browser in windows 8, fits in really well. Too bad its still missing so many important features :(

Personally not surprised, there's an addon in the works that, among other things, re-enables the addon bar in Australis. All of my other minor complaints are already tweakable to my liking. Says it'll be released once Australis is officially part of Nightly. Can get rid of the curved tabs too if that's your thing. This is why I stay with Firefox.

I won't miss the addon bar, there's nothing in it that I interact with constantly, but you can't currently easily hide it so I just leave it enabled, Australis lets me hide them away but still access them easily.

Opera. Definitely switch to Opera.

Me and all the other Opera users could carpool then!
