Why is it that when software companies try to improve an already established product, the first thing they want to do is change everything around? What I am talking about are the buttons, tool-bars, and menu features that we finally have become familiar with. This was my first impression of the new and improved Firefox browser from the folks at Mozilla. Is it just me or does Firefox now look like a combination of Opera and Chrome?

I realize that many of the improvements are hidden in the background to adhere to the latest technology changes on the Web. For this I say, ‘yippee!’ But it has taken me almost five years to adjust myself in using Firefox and these changes, IMHO, are not necessary. Improvements to the engine, yes. Changing the GUI, no.

Just my two cents.

Comments welcome.
