open source browser?
Do you think Opera have studied that code?
An open source code browser will never get a link on this http://www.redcarpetrank.com/ site.

Myopia seems to be an affliction experienced by all-too-many in the software field. But if they are not totally removing features and letting the end-user decide, that's a bit less myopic that removing them altogether.Given the forced march toward ever more powerful client platforms, to now believe that a minimalist approach to browser design, with users left to decide which optional features should be activated and how to do so, seems to be more than a little myopic.
I mean you can always choose to stay on 3.6. Yea I know that's not the best idea. We'll really just have to wait and see how thing are with FF 4
"Beltzner admitted that that means taking away user interface controls, and some users are going to scream about it, but it’s necessary to simplify and speed up Firefox."
Note he said "taking away", and not something like "hiding" or "disabling by default with the option to enable", etc.
Thanks for the link and the heads-up deepsand...
Well, if it's "clean" that you want, how about nothing but an Address Bar; can't get much cleaner than that!
It's time to once more repeat : Form follows Function.
Precisely what about FF's UI is "unclean?"
Take note of the fact that the stated goal of Mozilla is not "clean," but "lean," so as to reduce FF's footprint. And, as I've above noted, that involves trade-offs. You cannot have "lean" without a commensurate loss of functionality.
But if you can reimplement the features then what's the problem.
