Almost, how can I be sure?
I notice that the menus are native, I see no X11 running. However 
Panels, controls, buttons, etc have exactly that look.

Fine.. maybe somebody want to work with me on TenFourFox-Intel and/or 
projects like FlexiSheet, GNUMail and other apps, I will present them.

And of course.. someone will sometimes report how things are on 10.5/ 
intel 32bit
