Correct. (Y) I wonder if the average user would be able to tell the difference.

Likely, I didn't recognise the first image, and assumed it was edge.

Firefox was easier because of the 'in private browsing'

Oh crap! I'm not very good at paying attention to my own screens. It does however show that Mozilla was very inspired by Edge.

Except the In Private Browsing is Edge, not Firefox.

Does it matter? Are we moving on from Firefox looks like Chrome to it looks like Edge now?

That's what I meant, I didn't bother changing it as Lime had quoted me, so the mistake would still be there

I am normally not a fan of flat design but the new Photon UI didn't go as far as Edge and it just looks better to boot.

The blueness of the tabs & Private Browsing label would honestly suit Edge more. Orange is usually associated with Firefox.

It's doesn't. I was just surprised they copied design elements from Edge. I always thought they were going the Chrome route. I was wrong.

 

I'm glad Mozilla decided to keep at least some of the customizable elements of the browser. I was kinda scared they would remove all of them with this update.

Cars all look the same. Android phones all look the same now. There are design trends that are copied everywhere including browsers.

 

Saying that, understand things look even more the same if not familiar with them. I have used the Photon UI with 57.0beta for one day and could tell that was Firefox right away. At work, I also use Firefox but regular staff only have IE and Chrome as options. I sometimes can't tell right away which one is open at first glance on the user's desktop.

Point taken. It just surprised me is all.

 

At the end of the day, it's a good change, and it will be even better once most of the existing extensions are updated to support it. :)

The average user can't even tell what version of Windows they are using by looking at the bottom bar.

Yeah that's true. If only the boot screens still made it obvious which version they had.

      This year I'm giving No so shave "No shave November" a try. At the moment I'm only 6 days in. I just shaved my neck today, because I do have some standards.
       
      Lets see Neowin Members shave November beards.
