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
that will open a new tab. One click instead of two! :-)

Muscle memory and habit.

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

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.
