Looking more like Chrome in 4.0

I noticed a design for the Oxygen theme. I wonder if this means they're going to make it follow Qt themes? That'd be great.

I definitely prefer the second, chrome-like one. I wish they'd get rid of the gray though.

Those mockups look really, really good. I have my doubts that the 4.0 one there would be possible with the current toolkit though.

The Firefox 4 one looks nice. Except for "Bruce" in the corner? What the hell is that there for?

Can't say I like the 4,0, I have to say I am a fan of the traditional toolbars.

Ah, I like 4.0 and 3.7 looks nice, slicker :)

I'd imagine "Bruce" is the current user! :)

Other than tabs on top* my 3.5 already looks like 4.0, it looks better than chrome because it has a bookmarks button.

*I'm not convinces either way by tabs at the top and definitely don't want anything messing with my window decorations

mmmmm 4.0 is purrrdy.


hey. if Bruce is indeed the user. that could be really cool. Because. I use firefox for different roles. ie. school, work, fun. and it would be nice to be able to have different profiles for each so that for example when I'm typing in a web address it only suggests other websites that are associated with that role.

if my laptop is attached to a projector for a school presentation and have to go on the web and break.com shows up.. that isn't great.

and yes I can create another user account, clear private data etc. but. those aren't as ideal as they could be and that is just one example.

you have to admit though it does make Chrome look VERY minimal and keeps clutter to a minimum :)

You are down to 2 or 3 bars tops including the window decoration :)

It will interfering with kwin's shiny new tabbing feature in 4.4 though

you the master of kde threads did not know this? Kwin is going to be tabbing/tileable in 4.4

moving the tabs to the top isn't what makes it looks minimal, its the rest of the interface being minimal.

Messing with the Window decorations seams very wrong because not only does it mean a crashed program can do more damage, but it also limits the customisation you can get in window decorations.

p.s I'm already down to 3 bars (and that's including the window decorations that is effectively free in my setup, due to my window decoration :D).

Edit: thinking about it i do see that for others window decoration merging would work better so I just hope that if its implemented its optional.

Edit2: userchrome.css attached if anybody wants to copy anything (the minimalism is just that + an extension to hide the menubar

I don't really care as long as they improve the stability and the responsiveness of the browser, right now I'm using Chromium just because I'm tired of the collapses and slow motion.

that's quite cool, but it's just like I had in Fluxbox... I wonder if they will implement it well because KDE looks gorgeous and I don't want it to spoil the look of it ._.

It's an OK idea, but I hope you can turn it on and off and I hope they make it look as nice and polished and fluid as the rest of the interface :)

Yeah but... in Chrome you have tabs, window buttons, navigation, search, address bar, dropdown menus and bookmark toolbar all in just 3 bars, by default. Isn't that quite good? :)
