Personally, the UI is not that bad, I tested since the betas and I liked that zoom options now are very handy... but is just matter of tastes.
What it really stands out is that firefox is way faster than v28, I really like its speed.

If you want minimal, try pressing F11.

Current Opera and Chrome are using the same engine I'm still on 12.17. A Guy

I like FF29 so far, working good.
I had to change a few buttons around to get it how I like, also had to get an add-on to get the Bookmark Sidebar back to "Just clicking" one button.

Only issue so far is sometimes after I close FF the Process stays on, so when I go to open it again it says "Already Running" and I have to kill it in Task Manger before it will start again.

Those of you who dislike australis may want to try Pale Moon or Cyberfox. I use Pale Moon, but Cyberfox seems like a good alternative too, but I've never used it. Or you can use the ESR version of firefox or classic theme restorer add-on on the new FF29. I should mention that ESR is not quite up-to date compared to Pale Moon because the dev. of Pale Moon has implemented security features not found on the regular version 24, so PM is actually more secure than maybe even FF29 and ESR 24.

As you can see, there are a couple paths you can take to avoid australis, but staying on v.28 is not.. advised.

The bug where the browser switches back to another window if you open a video in a new window is still present. Nice to see they don't care to fix this.

If only I could rearrange the main nav buttons to be Back - Forward - Stop/Reload - Home, give them some contrasting color, and get rid of that stupid "hamburger" button on the far right, I'd be satisfied.
