Some people are just...
lol yeah they act like it's a ton of physical labor or something. Yes, mental labor can sometimes seem just as bad as physical labor, but still...
I mean damn, this is what Firefox is all about: if you don't like something, then change it. I remember a time when most people would laugh at you if you were still using the default theme. Yes, I'm using UX Nightly and I'm loving the default theme, but I'll tell you what: if I didn't like it, then I wouldn't be using it, and fortunately it's extremely easy to change it. "Oh no, I might have to spend a few minutes looking for a new theme and oh no I might have to spend a few seconds installing it and restarting Firefox! I can't handle it!" Sigh. Give me a break.
What is with people these days? "I want everything to be exactly the way I want it upon delivery." Me, me, me. It's all about me these days. What, has everyone become Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses or something and I missed the memo? The last time I checked, we still have to do physical or mental labor (or both) to get something to be exactly the way we want it to be, and Firefox is no different. Why does it have to be absolutely perfect for you upon delivery? Are they making it just for you, or are they making it for everyone
? Think about it. That's why Firefox is as customizable as it is.
Do these people complain that they have to install an Extension in order to get a feature that Firefox doesn't come with? I mean, seriously, what's the difference? So you might end up installing a theme. Cry me a river.
Besides, this is UX Nightly. What we're looking at here might be totally different when it's finally released as a final version. The path is this: UX Nightly > Nightly > Aurora > Beta > Final. So seriously, I wish people would stop acting like this is definitely the way it's going to be when it finally becomes Firefox 25. It's giving me a headache. Change the channel already, people.
Also, no one is forcing you to use it. Even you were being forced to use it, it's still 100% customizable. So, I don't know what the big deal is.

And so far it is not sure if these customization features can be brought back by Add-on Developers or IF they are brought back by Add-On Developers.
This "New Theme" is more or less the kind of stuff Opera pulled out with "opera next" - without switching to Webkit, but functionwise, Firefox gets cut down quite much, and so far, Mozilla's new plan of available right from the start in-Browser customization without add-ons is only moving some stuff from left to right and adding/removing Add-On Buttons.
Oh btw. everyone who has used the add-on bar, get ready that all add-on Buttons are hitting the Navigation Bar elements, and what does not fit that tiny space is landing in a so called Overflow Panel.
So.. while Australis will be a dream for all amateur Users, Australis is a true Nightmare for Advanced, More advanced and so called Power Users.
Well, this is still in an extremely early stage of development. I mean, the path is UX Nightly > Nightly > Aurora > Beta > Final. So, what we're seeing here could be nothing like the final version.Edited by TwoCables - 6/15/13 at 12:22pm
