"Firefox 3.7a5pre now has an option to place the browser's tabs on top of the controls, similar to Google Chrome. This is likely part of Mozilla's plans to redesign Firefox for version 4.

The Add-ons Manager has also been redesigned and has animations such as "Search" sliding in the left column when you search. The new Add-ons Manager is written in XML.

The search box remains, and to update Add-ons we now click the text link "Update add-ons"."
