New Super Mario Theme for Firefox 3

Want to take Firefox to the Mushroom Kingdom?  This new Mario Bros theme looks fantastic from head to Toad.  Can you tell I am a little excited?

Another nice feature is that if your are using small icons on your navigation bar, your icons get turned into 16-bit versions of the larger ones:

This is not the first Mario-based theme for Firefox.  Do you remember that Super Mario 3 inspired theme?  It did not last long on Mozilla’s site.

With Mozilla’s history with copyrighted material based themes, I have to say it is probably only a matter of time before this one gets taken down – so grab it while you can.  Pickup and the Mario Bros theme at the Firefox Add-ons site.

Extra Life: Just in case it does get taken down, here is an alternative download link.  Just unzip and then drop it into your themes browser.

Replace Ads with Art

Any Firefox user worth his weight in add-ons can block advertisements, using tools like AdBlock Plus but few can block the ads can replace them with something to give your Web browsing experience a little more class.  How about replacing all those punch the monkey ads with art?

It this entices your cultural taste buds, then you might want to add the Add-Art extension to your own Firefox install.  Add-Art replaces advertising images on web pages with contemporary art from a curated database.  It is also worth making note of  that the install is bundled with the AdBlockPlus extension.

Worried about seeing the same art too many time?  The galleries are updated every two weeks and feature contemporary artists and curators.  You can pickup the addon on Mozilla’s site or their official site, Add-Art.org.
