Well, it doesn't spy on me by default so yes I believe it can.

You idiots, I don't want every browser to look the same.


I really wish Avant would open source so people could update the engine without changing the interface, since Avant did the chrome look alike as well.


So any browsers left that still believe in buttons large enough to click, button text full enough to read and understand, and icons clear enough to understand?

Hopefully it'll give the option to use the old UI, because I don't want to use that thing.

Eh, I don't care. I don't want the focus of my browser to be the UI , I want it to be the content I'm viewing. Chrome and Firefox are already so incredibly close as far as usability goes that a UI change in either one doesn't really make a difference to me.

Do you really need your browsers to look unique?

I dunno. Firefox already looks like that on Macs

Don't know about you, but I figure out what I'm clicking by the text of the button, not the stupid icon. If I could turn the pictures off and just leave text I would.

Why have several browsers if they all look the same, even worse, many are now just using the same engine.

Also firefox mobile, in addition to having the worst browser interface, just dumped flash support :( so now it's totally useless.
I wish Opera classic used Chromes engine, new opera has a difficult to use interface. But opera classic is so slow...

-Edit-
Oh. That's a Mac browser in that screenshot. So what's different again?
