The new Firefox 4 is out and I installed it now that most of my extensions work. There are a couple of things that I noticed:
- It looks very much like Chrome with the tabs on top and the context menu placing “Open in New Tab” in the pole position.
- The page loading icon is sometimes two different icons.
The latter is the one things that has been fascinating me for the entire day. So much so that I even recorded my screen to record the action. Normally, the page loading icon spins and spins and spins and you are happy when you finally get to the page, the flash movie etc. It usually spins clockwise. However, sometimes the page loading icon in Firefox spins counter clockwise. And on top of that, the graphics is a different one.
Now the big question is: Why? I’d love to hear a good explanation for these two different graphics. Is it essentially a different process, is it a bug that hasn’t been fixed, is it a feature to show a different loading process?
