Just tried UX just for the heck of it and noticed the Options page? Is that what they really intend to do? Instead of tabs, we have to press back every time we need to go to a different section?


That's just a port of old interface to in-content UI and they ensured that the backed works. I remember seeing some mockups of preference page designed like the addon page (with tabs on the left).

Ion Monkey landed on Mozilla-central.....


Any news on Gecko? Because it doesn't matter how fast IonMonkey can crunch when Gecko can't keep up to render it.

I shared several updates in past that Gecko got support for this and that.
Actually Firefox now ditched the numbering thing of Gecko, After Gecko 2 for Firefox 4, Gecko 5 directly comes with FF5, Gecko 10 with FF10. So now you can say that each version updates brings several Gecko enhancements.
For example, if you are using latest Nightly, it has several patches for Display list based Invalidation mechansim, which significantly makes it faster on "IE Maze Solver", it now behind IE and Chrome from few seconds, next set of patches and we are all set. Like this many other stuff also landed, like DHTML reflow fix etc.

It was landed just few hours before the last merge from FF17 in Aurora to FF18 as Nightly.

well yeah, that just makes since that if it's in the Aurora builds logically it'd be in the nightly builds as well

cool, and they got the tab animations working in a way that you can still interact with the taskbar when dragging a tab :)

Might be late but I am kinda liking where this thing is going , will kill IM in a way i guess...

Okay people might call me crazy but I am seeing that Mozilla is implementing things much more efficiently than any other browser vendor at present , like see how they are developing a metro app so well , and this Social API thingy ,and the PDF viewer is just too amazing, and the IonMonkey landing was so smooth, didn't break anything vigorously ! It's just that Mozilla doesn't complete everything in time (or ever) ...
