An internal post has identified increased traffic of the site, adding this reply:

Since this hit digg it looks like we will be getting a lot of traffic.  A
couple of notes for people who are curious:

-This is currently a mockup, not the final design
-We are taking visual integration seriously on every platform, but we are also
working on ways to create a design that is still uniquely Firefox, and
recognizable across all of the platforms
-Calling it an identity crisis is going a little far since most apps try to
match the OS they are running on
-While we are not going to exactly match Safari, a massive number of mac users
have written in to request that we put greater effort into visual integration
with OS X for Firefox 3
