Cylence Theme – Emerald Variation

Well, ask and somebody will be nice enough to make it for you. Isn’t that how the old saying goes?

Well, that might not be the words exactly but I am just so excited that there is finally an emerald variation of the Cylence theme series for Firefox. The author of the theme Julien Saurin was nice enough to send it my way before it got listed on Mozilla’s Web site as well.

I have been using it for a while, and I think it is the best one yet. Of course, I love green – so that might have something to do with it as well.

Locationbar 2

I have never seen much editing or tweaking done with the address bar inside of Firefox. Maybe people are afraid of messing with what works? Maybe folks just like it the way it is? No matter what the reason might be – it has not been done before till now. I have been playing with Locationbar 2 today and I have to say it is pretty neat. Some of the features include:

  • Decodes URLs for better readability
  • Hides featureless parts of URLs
  • Reduces the spoofing risks of URLs

myFirefox – IE7 Theme for Firefox

Now if the Looks Familiar theme makes Firefox look more like Internet Explorer 6, then what does my Firefox do? It makes your Firefox experience a little more like Internet Explorer 7.

There is no reason you shouldn’t like the IE7 theme, even if you are the biggest Firefox fan in the world. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. Now you can have the slick interface of Internet Explorer 7 with your favorite Mozilla browser under the hood. Some might say it is the best of both worlds.

President Countdown Clock

Countdown

The President Bush Countdown Firefox extension counts down the number of days left till we get a new president.

Now I know you are going to say this sounds like an anti-republican Firefox extension, and the last thing I want to do is alienate anybody who checks out the Firefox Facts on a daily basis. So instead of leaning to one side or the other, I am going to give both sides of the political fence a reason they could and should use this Firefox extension.

For those who like the current president, this gives you an idea of how much more time you have to spend with this commander and chief. For those who might not like him so much, well – you only have so many days left. You see – everybody wins and nobody has to get mad.

Clean and Familiar Firefox Theme

Kemplton is definately a clean and familiar Firefox theme.

I have been using it on my notebook PC for a while now, and I can not say I have any real complaints. A lot of the icons and navigation of it look much like the standard themes you see out there. It might not re-invent the wheel, but it is easy on the eyes.

Give it a shot and let me know your own thoughts on it.

Firefox Facts on MyBlogLog

Want to help me out with a social experiment?

Go add yourself as a reader (or in their terms, “member”) of Firefox Facts via MyBlogLog. I have been seeing this pop up on all my favorite Web sites, so I thought I would jump in on the fun and see who comes up as a reader here.

If nobody interacts, it will probably be gone soon – but if I see a lot of members coming up then I might have to keep it around. I’d like to see who reads Firefox Facts and see what other Web sites you find interesting.

Also feel free to add me as a friend as well.

Fighting Spam With Firefox

These days it looks like the war on spam is getting to become a harder and harder battle to fight. Thankfully though, there are a few select applications and services that help us fight on the side of good.

One of those would be the SpamReport extension for Firefox. This extension allows you to easily report Web sites using spamdexing methods to artificially improve their ranking through simplified access to Google’s SpamReport service. It might not be a cure to the problem, but it is a start.
