Mozilla Firefox 3.7 or 4.0 Copy Google Chrome Browser

I am still doing the testing to compare the Internet browsers to update my post ‘Internet Browser Comparison Results – UAT by Jasswin’, and just now once I visit to the Mozilla Wiki Firefox 3.7 Windows Theme Mockups and Mozilla Wiki Firefox 4.0 Windows Theme Mockups sites, then the message popup immediately in my mind is ‘Mozilla Firefox 3.7 / 4.0 copy Google Chrome browser’ User Interface looks and feel.

May be I should not use the ‘Copy’ word to describe the next Firefox 3.7 or Firefox 4.0 user interface design, as I understand why, because the Firefox try to make it simplify and make the screen look neat. Actually, I like Google Chrome browser too, but just the existing Google Chrome browser 2.0 has a lot of issue (especially compatible issue) with Microsoft .Net and Java base developed office used application. So far I have no problem to use the Firefox 3.5.1 and Internet Explorer 8 in the office, but not Google Chrome 2.0.

There is no any copyright issue on the user interface design for the Internet browser, and the main purpose for the Internet browser is meet the Internet users need and design to suit for the next computer laptop trend called ‘Netbooks Computer’ with smaller size or SMARTS phone. You can refer to my post ‘Choose the right Netbook or Mini Computer Laptops’ to know more on Netbooks computer, then you will understand the design of Internet browser have to make it less buttons and get ready to match the Microsoft Windows 7 color and theme. As I am sure that once Google Chrome OS release by next year 2010 with their own Google Chrome browser, then not much people will install the Firefox in Google Chrome OS system.

So, why Mozilla care about other people said the Firefox 3.7 or Firefox 4.0 looks like Google Chrome or copy from Google Chrome? Since no copyright issue, and people like it, then just make it then. We are always support you to make it happen asap, if not Google Chrome browser 3.0 will be our next default Internet browser!


Next Firefox Version! Be More Creative!
