The Mozilla/Firefox crowd seems to have developed Google envy and gotten infected by Metro madness:
Firefox debuts new UI that looks like Chrome, but does that mean it can compete with Chrome?
At long last, Mozilla has rolled out a massive UI update to Firefox that makes it look almost exactly like Chrome. Dubbed Australis, this is the biggest ever change to Firefox’s user interface, with much improved streamlining and customization, and the unification of Mozilla’s design language across the desktop, smartphone, and Firefox’s myriad other form factors. Australis will debut in Firefox 28, which just hit the Nightly (alpha testing) channel; if everything goes to plan, the new-look Firefox should be ready for mass consumption at the start of 2014.

I'm surprised the writer didn't say FF was looking "dated and cheesy."
