[Camino] My Biting Review of Firefox

The reason FF doesn't have native widgets is because Carbon doesn't 
easily allow for the <select> widget to be done. It's easier from 
Cocoa, which is why camino does it. Instead of having some widgets look 
native and others not, they decided to forego all. Wise choice? Not 
sure. Just wanted to set the record straight
