"Starting with Vista, and continuing with Windows 7, the menu bar is going away," notes Mozilla in its plans for revamping the Firefox user interface. "[It will] be replaced with things like the Windows Explorer contextual strip, or the Office Ribbon, [which is] now in Paint and WordPad, too." The change will also bring Windows' Aero Glass effects to the browser."

Firefox to replace menus with Office Ribbon

Comments Filter:
  • I didn't like this change in Office, i doubt i will like it with Firefox.
    Hope the linux version won't have this shit mandatory.

  • IE 8 has OK implementation of ribbons - i.e. it still menus if you press ALT. As long as they use less space than now I'll be happy as I want the page not the browser while I'm browsing.
