Firefox 4 gets custom alertboxes

Look, Firefox 4 is getting custom UI for JavaScript alert boxes:

ff4_alerts

My first impression is that while that’s pretty, it seems to be pretty for the sake of pretty. My gut feeling is, however, that with the XUL-based interface Firefox has, they need to make custom UI if they want to make JavaScript alerts tab-modal — and why wouldn’t they? So they might as well run with it. Tab-modal, if that is in fact what they’re doing: thumbs up. Pretty for the sake of pretty: mullet.

  1. It’s pretty, it’s more convenient, but it definitely needs to be faster!
