    Qt != KDE. But even if that were the case, your response isn't really any less childlike than the one you're criticising. Besides, there are plenty of KDE-specific tools that are better than GTK, and vise versa. Both DEs have their own set of dedicated apps that outperform the others'. For me personally, most GNOME apps are too simplified and restricting.

    Does GTK3 mean that Firefox will finally have CSD (tabs in titlebar) by default? That's awesome!!! I've been waiting this for so long!!!
    It had that in Windows version for years but Firefox for Linux was second class citizen. Better later than never!
    I'm still using Firefox even though it is lagging behind other browsers but news like this makes me happy! It proves that Firefox is not dead, it just takes more time to embrace cool new underlying technologies!

    gnome people already said that GTK3 is for gnome usage and it will change for gnome... they don't care about other projects using GTK... so leave GTK3 alone or you will be sorry later. This is why several tools switched to QT, FLTK or keep GKT2

    Firefox/Iceweasel 42 is a bug POS throughout. Randomly crashing with or without flash and no plugins or extensions enabled. 46 Alpha Nightly is more stable. It rarely crashes. For a company who flag ship product is still the browser it is a giant mess and memory hog.

    I'm disappointed. I have GTK3 installed, but not GTK2. Why doesn't Mozilla care about users like me? I have a hi-dpi screen so GTK2 apps look terrible, whereas GTK3 has hi-dpi support so those apps look great. I use nightly builds of Firefox (Aurora) for the GTK3 support. Even GDM and LightDM require GTK3 these days.

    But the Firefox an enterprise would use is ESR.

    That's irrelevant - enterprise hardware won't have a reason to run firefox, and if they did, firefox would be outdated along with everything else.

    i've just update, and on my notebook firefox 43 use gtk3.
    furthermore, now use ffmpeg, and now html5 support on youtube is finally complete (we can select every resolution)

    Still, distros shipping GTK3 will most likely compile FF w/ GTK3 support enabled anyway.
