Anyone else noticed this? I am just installed new Firefox 4.0 beta 7 and was very surprised by what i see. from first moments i thought someone changed theme for my Google chrome and i opened it by mistake. Only after few mouse moves and scrolling i realized i ma in new Firefox beta. But still i am confused again. Firefox must do some new unique improvements not copy-paste things from Google Chrome browser!

Even I am using the latest version of Firefox but I do not see much affinity between the two. Each has its own features and I must say this version of Firefox is too good.

Do you use latest beta 7 or stable 3.6 version of Firefox? Firefox 3.6 is the same as it was, but firefox 4 beta 7 is a lot like chrome by its design, tabs switch etc...

I think firefox has used its own unique style and methodology but appearance and platform like chrome to attract people who want superfast browsers with fast features and less hinderence with toolbars.

I went back to Firefox 3.6 because I like the format of it, I didn't like the new format so I downloaded the old one.

Great for you. I like chrome better, but hey if Firefox is ll what you need then don't listen to nobody and try it out on your own.

firefox is doing some simplification to their UI even it looks a little same but they are different

yeah, they are different, but still its obvious that they are not so much different from each other because they are fighting for user votes in the same segments - extensions, apps and addons, browser speed, browser design etc.

In these days its hard to create something unique and super new i think, so everyone look at others and try to do not stand back if they see their product is weaker compared to competitors.

I dont think it looks like Chrome. I am using 4.0.8b and yes it sucks for now as its a beta version. Many sites do not work correctly. HTML5 support is not implemented completely + there are performance issues too.

what is bad for ff4beta8 is browser synchronization! While in Chrome it is built in with email, in FF i need to make accounts, then remember keys.. its not hard to do it, but still it take time.

I like them both, but i must say that for me chrome works better. Firefox is great too and must continue to work to make challenge for chrome browser developers.
