What did the guys at Mozilla smoke?
Just one day after I wrote about this stupid design idea Mozilla presented a future design for Firefox. Ugly rounded tabs against an unexpected terrific improvement: They finally increased the height of the tabs on Mac OS X.
What is wrong with Mozilla?
They buck the trend of flat design which is quite another overrated idea. They did not learn from the failures of the Thunderbird design and in fact they repeat one.
Naturally it can not fail this much like for Thunderbird – Firefox has only one third of necessary elements to design than Thunderbird.
