Mozilla Shows How FF 4 Might Look [news.cnet.com]
Mozilla has released mockups that show how Firefox 4.0 conceivably might look, and two words spring to my mind: Google Chrome.

Last week, Mozilla showed some mockups for the nearer-term Firefox 3.7 that eliminated the browser's title bar, replacing it with two drop-down menu buttons on the right, just like Chrome has had since its September 2008 debut. The Firefox 4.0 mockups show two options, one similar to the 3.7 ideas, and the other taking another step in the Chrome direction.

Specifically, the second Firefox 4.0 mockup shows the browser tabs on top where once there was a window title bar.

I'm not a big fan of the Chrome interface and think it's overly simplified child-proof interface is too simplistic for the Firefox crowd.

Besides, if we have 2 browsers that look alike the level of desktop confusion could get out of control.

Not a fan of this transition, not at all.

Both Chrome and this new Fx look have an IE layout. I really didn't care for the IE7 look when it first came out but as long as we are allowed to customize, I'm fine.
