Okay, I've changed my mind about the #firefox redesign and I quite like it. It feels cleaner. The "tabs" don't feel as ridiculous as I thought they would, and the improved menu navigation makes up for the loss of icons
My new tab browser extension, Renewed Tab, can now be translated. I've set up weblate to allow users to translate into their languages: https://weblate.rubenwardy.com/engage/renewed-tab/
None of the existing new tab extensions did what I wanted, so I made one that did. It has an intuitive user interface to create, move, and resize widgets on a grid.
There are already quite a few types of widgets, including: RSS and Atom feeds, the Weather, Quick Links, Top Sites, Daily Goals, Greetings, Notes, your current Age, Search, Web Comics, and upcoming Space Flights.
