Firefox 3 Brings Ugliness to the Mac

Firefox does not use Cocoa controls. However when they tried to copy the OS X buttons they must apparantly made a few mistakes, because the buttons does not look anything like the OS X buttons. And as soon as a few effects are added it just gets worse and worse.... It’s not Windows, it’s not OS X and it’s not Linux. It’s something else.
Today might be Firefox 3 Download Day, but I'm not sure how excited I am to install it now that I've read this summary of the UI irregularities in the version for Mac OS. I haven't used any of the betas, so I'm sure I'll go ahead and download today's release just to check it out. But still, what are they thinking?
