    It looks nice, I always thought that tabs that are too squared-off look a bit old fashioned. It looks a bit more like Chrome now. ROTFLMAO

    It's a good job that have quite different desktop icons, otherwise, pretty soon you won't know which one you've opened. :D

    I don't know why they don't just combine the two (Maxthon-style) & have Firechrome or Chromefox.

    I can't run it. firefox.exe process loads, but there's no GUI. But, if I run it inside of Sandboxie, then it opens. o_O

    Is anyone able to run it, normally? I installed it, with no other configuration, but it doesn't open.

    -edit-

    It's running now. It's a conflict with WSA.

    Link not found at addons.mozilla.org. Funny thing though I put Australis in the search box and it came up with this. FXChrome :: Add-ons for Firefox :D

    I installed it, sure hope it not what they will be coming up with. :(

    Those screenshots posted by guest look at lot nicer.

    Back to default theme now.

    Why in the world can't FF be original anymore? :( (FWIW, square tabs, curved tabs... who cares??)

    Actually, Firefox Australis has a cleaner design than Chrome's. I like it a lot. The Australis design actually made me try Firefox after a few years of absence. :D

    By the way, does anyone know whether or not Australis made it to the regular nightly builds? I'm on low speed connection, so it would be quite problematic to download it now. :ouch:

    Well...if they're looking into redesigning tabs, I wonder if they might look into allowing tabs to be placed on the side of the browser. I've been using add-ons for a long time to get that feature. Really wish it was just built-in.

    Wow, that's weird. It is no longer up for me either, but I swear it was up when I posted!

    I searched for it in Themes, and it said that it won't work in FF V13. o_O
