Not the point I am trying to make. I have understood from past posts
that a lot of you would like to keep TB like it is and we shouldn't be
making random changes. But there must be something positive about the
mockups? Please try to find those 2% you may like. If the result of this
thread is that everyone posting agrees that there is not one thing to
like about it and that we should stay with our current UI, then we might
as well close the thread.

As you mention, there are users that want things to look good. So, what
do you think looks good about it and still works? Technical reasons like
gecko version aside please. Lets try to turn this from "Yes, but", into
"Yes, and" :)
