Care to elaborate on what you dislike about it?
A bunch of small stuff:
- right clicking on a tab doesn't have "New Tab" anymore.
True. See the blue cross on the right-hand side of the tab? Clicking on

Tabs and the search bar were the big UI advances in the history of
Netscape & Mozilla. The original (derived from Mosaic?) UI was darned

The Win98/2K (originally from Win95???) Start button is still a good
motif. Panels (originally from OSX?) and applets when *combined* with
the Start menu make it even more useful.
