Apparently, Mozilla already plan to add transparency to Firefox, similar to the Glasser add-on.

That looks awesome, but I can't help but think you get a lot less room for viewing the actual web page - the content - than Google Chrome, or Safari. As long as they keep the "Use Small Icons" checkbox, though, it should help a lot.

If you need more room in Firefox, simply unchecked Bookmarks Toolbar
Well, In chrome and safari, the file menu doesn't show up and I use it very often.

Oh, I was referring to this mockup. There is no bookmark bar showing in this mockup, and it still takes up more room than any of the other browsers these days do, with the exception of IE8.

You are right, I hope they fix it before it is release. I totally agree with you and I know that a lot of people out there agree with us. It will most likely get fix before an actual release.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm really psyched for this. Firefox is leaps and bounds ahead of most other browsers.

Well, except it's not. Horses for courses though. As for the mockup, well it looks like IE8, which looks like a turd, why would you want to make FF look like a turd? Not that it looks all that great anyway, but you get the point. Safari, Chrome, Opera all look better IMO.

..Looks great, but I don't think that it is really imporatant. The main objective of developers must be a creating of the fastest browser, not the prettiest.

Looks like the lovechild of Chrome and IE, and like Derf pointed out, not exactly slimline, worrying for smaller monitors...

And no, Firefox does not leap and bound, Firefox with Adblock Plus and several other addons essential for day to day use come out on top, but add a good addblocker and download manager to any other browser and Firefox is no better, worse even, takes longer to start up and uses alot more Ram.
