Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Some of my reason for using firefox: I want the search bar there.I wish I could rate this neutral as I don't have anything against it except that it is copying chrome, i havent used it so i dont know if it improves on chromes idea. So ill give it 4 stars, at least you guys are working hard and doing some awesome stuff! :)
OH so sorry Mardak I hadn't seen your reply to my comment (maybe AMO can have email notification somewhere)
I think the idea of combining of the search bar and url bar is google inspired. Although it's not too much of a deviation from removing the search bar. I think at the time I left that comment I was disheartened to see FF4 becoming chrome-like especailly with the resizeable textarea rather then the form autofill memory feature.

Very disappointed in the FF team. FF is becoming an ugly version of Chrome. I would like to see some unique/non-google-inspired ideas by the team. I like the speak words as that is someone different from google (ie: tab switch), speak words has bugs and needs to be fixed.I uninstalled this addon as I love my search box in FF. I think firefox came out with instantPreview before google, but FF version has some bugs. Please fix speak words and instant preview before going to copy other google ideas.
If you would like to copy a google idea, please please please copy the form memory ideas (that is beutiful, although google did steal that from formfox, an ff addon)
Curious, what parts of the add-on do you feel are google-inspired? The categories? Quick switching of providers? The Speak Words compatibility issue is tracked here: https://github.com/mozilla/prospector/issues/295
