What is going on here? The most commonly used button on a browsers toolbar was made a little easier to see and given a bigger hit area. Probably good for the general population who uses it often (alt/apple-left arrow people!). For those that don’t like it luckily you can easily make it the same size as the rest of the buttons. (/me waits for John to come throw something at him)
What is going on here? I thought that the UI in FireFox 3 was broken, but I guess this is what they wanted it to look like. However bad it looks, it is a great example of misplaced dissonance.
Be sure to go get Firefox 3!

Heard tonight: a refreshing cover of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” (isn’t that their best song?) by up and comer Mozella. Her album stuff is way too sugary and poppy for me, but this cover, which is slow and soulful, is really quite good,
and can be found and purchased on iTunes..
I may have just died and gone to heaven.
