Well, guys at Fraunhofer Inc. decided to download Internet Explorer 10, Google Chrome 26 and Mozilla Firefox 21 and do a study of their own.
Here are the results:
Another Chrome clone in the making.
Back in 2012, Mozilla promised to overhaul the overall UI in the upcoming Firefox 19 release (see screenshot below). Well, that did not happen.
