It has been a while since a Firefox theme shot out at me with some originality. iPox is a Mozilla Firefox theme loosely based off an iPod and Apple GUI. Now I know what you are going to say, “Yeah, so is every other theme that comes out for Firefox!” but I promise, you should give this one a shot. This theme doesn’t slap you in the face with the common Apple look. Instead it really does something different, as far as Apple inspired themes go.
Sure you love using Firefox as your browser, but your not a true fan unless you have some wallpaper love for your Internet companion. I recently ran across a plethora of free Firefox wallpaper, and much of it I really like. The only problem I could see is that most (if not all) are set at the 1024 x 768 resolution.
For those of you who might not know, BOINC is free, open-source software for distributed computing. It was designed for volunteer computing, but also works well for desktop grid computing within organizations. Now you can keep track of some of the user stats via the Firefox Web browser.
Ever Needed to save an entire Web site as on image? Maybe you are a Web site designer working on a portfolio? Maybe you are just a random surfer with way too much time on his or her hands. No mater what the reason is, the ScreenGrab extension for Firefox should get the job done for you. You can save the entire page as an image, just the visible portion, or the browser window.
What is JAHJAH? JAJAH introduces global VoIP telephony between normal land line and mobile phones – without software download, installation process and headsets. It is yet another VoIP solution, and they have a Firefox extension to plug you into the service.
Feeling like you are missing a few seconds when it comes to Firefox’s startup time? If so, you might want to take a look at the Firefox Preloader. It does exactly as you would think. Firefox Preloader is a utility that is designed to load parts of Mozilla Firefox into memory before it is used to improve the its startup time. Thanks to Daniel for submitting this one in to me.
I really don’t blame Firefox for this one. Sometimes you just have to cut the cord. I found this little ‘bit of information this morning while reading through geek.com.
It seems that Microsoft’s controversial decision to stop supporting Windows 98 and Windows Me has done more than leave users without continued security updates. Mozilla, the company behind the popular Internet Explorer alternative Firefox, has announced that, starting with Firefox v3.0, there will not be any support in the browser for Windows 98/Me either.
Do you enjoy the theme of Flock, but don’t want to give up on your traditional Firefox browser just yet? If you find yourself in that camp, then you need Flofox Revisited. I do have to admit, that Flock’s default skin is pretty nice looking. Personally, I just didn’t ever get that into Flock as a dedicated browser though. So you know what? This theme is perfect for me.
Why is it that Firefox can let you know when there is a new version of the browser available, but will not tell you when your themes or extensions need an update? This is one flaw in the Firefox system that I hope will be worked out over time.
Till that day in time comes though, I have a Firefox extension that will solve your problems. The Update Notifier extension will let you know when it is time to update all those neat extra features you have plugged into your browser.
