    It's been completely eaten by Leopard. I would get confused whether I was in Safari or Firefox!

    indeed, I hope they will preserve the 2.0 theme as an alternative in final release.

    ...So it can look like the non-Cocoa monstrosity that it is? :eek:

    I'll stick to browsers that AREN'T XUL-based, thanks.

    Firefox 3 is written in cocoa.

    I seriously doubt that. Use it for ten minutes and you can tell that it's not a Cocoa app.

    It might have a Cocoa wrapper for the window or something, but if it didn't have XUL in it anywhere, all those plugins Firefox fans drool over wouldn't work. It's definitely still not a Mac app.

    huh, I think you guys might have misunderstood what "cocoa" is, the widgets you guys are talking about, is aqua, is part of GUI, not "cocoa".

    cocoa is the core, and that makes firefox native.

    aqua widget, as you can see, has been implemented in most situations (not all tho)

    I don't see any problem with XUL, extensions and themes are all strength of firefox.

    Not a mac app? what is a mac app?
