Miss the colorfulness of the old Firefox 3 theme? For those of you who think the new Firefox 4 theme is a little too vanilla or washed out – there is an option. Go pick up the overly obvious named Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+. This theme will return your browser to a more colorful time, where your toolbar buttons had some color – but still allows you to keep the sleek new design and features that Firefox 4 delivers.
Want to experience the future of the Web, today? Taking it’s lead from the famous "World of Tomorrow" events you used to see boasted about at the old World’s Fairs – this new website from Mozilla acts as a showcase of demos for what Firefox 4 can do.
Are you a graphic designer looking for a new muse? Mozilla has a new contest going on for designing the new Firefox 4 launch t-shirt. All they need now is your submissions for some of the best and unique Firefox 4 logo designs. The winning design will be printed as the official Firefox 4 launch t-shirt, a limited edition item featured in the Mozilla store and distributed to the world wide audience of Firefox fans.
Need help distinguishing which tab is which in Firefox? OK, maybe telling where one tab ends and another begins really is not that hard. However, it would help if each tab was colored. ColorfulTabs, one of my favorite add-ons for the Firefox browser – does that with style.
Want to make Firefox look a little more like Facebook? I have a Firefox theme for you that takes its inspiration from the social networking juggernaut. The Facebook theme for Firefox actually does a pretty good job at giving you a Facebook looking browser – but still seems unique enough to not be called a carbon copy.
Tab Candy is the most exciting Firefox feature I have seen in a long time. The problem we all have is it becomes harder, as the day goes along, to keep our tabs organized. We all multi-task, and the regular horizontal tab toolbar with ten to twenty open tabs is not helping us. That is where Tab Candy comes into play.
Firefox 4 will be a big change when it comes to how we all interact with the browser. One slight change that people either cheer or boo is adding tabs on top of Firefox, rather than the current position most of you use today.
Want to know specific details about an image you are looking at? You can quickly find an image’s width and height with the Image Spider add-on for Firefox.
Now I can not see where this would be useful for your normal day to day Firefox users. I can see where it could serve as an important tool for web site designers. For any image on a website you can pull up details such as the width, height, natural width, natural height, and HTML elements such as the alt, title tag and border tags.
Coming to Firefox, you will soon start to see your add-ons manager inside the Firefox browsing window, rather than a popup window.
Personally, I really hope they plan to do this with all the extra popup windows Firefox has, because I want everything to be integrated within the browsing experience, and it has always seemed to me that a tab would be a much better place to take care of editing add-ons, options and more.
So, do you like the planned change? You can read more about it on Boriss’ Blog.
