This is painful. First they screwed up the working and sensible Mozilla prefs UI, or Mozilla UI in general. Now they're redesigning their already brain-dead prefs UI to be an even more brain-dead UI.
What in the hell is that horizontal "outlook bar" widget at the top supposed to be?
Seriously, I really don't care how much "tonka toy" appeal my browser's prefs dialog has, I would prefer if the developers stuck to "'95-alike grey" and actually worked on important new features, instead of going around in circles in pointless developments like this.
Do the Mozilla Foundation actually pay developers to do this sort of monkey work? If so, hire real developers damnit!
I could rant on for a quite while, but I'm so incensed by that bloody screenshot that I don't think I'd make much sense. :(
