Looks Familiar

Looks FamiliarNow I know I have seen these icons somewhere before – where was it? Oh yeah, it was that ugly monster that Microsoft called Internet Explorer 6. Now maybe you have a friend that was really in love with the IE6 interface. What are you to do when you want them to use Firefox instead? Give them the Looks Familiar theme because, well… it looks familiar to them!

GButts

I am not going to lie to you, I like this extension just because of its name. GButts adds the functionality of having your Google services on the same toolbar section as your home, bookmarks, forward and refresh buttons are. All you need to remember to do is drag and drop them onto your toolbars. If you find yourself using Google’s services a lot, then this extension is right for you.

Get the Older Firefox Theme

So you don’t like the new Firefox theme? Personally, I think it is alright – but I really don’t care that much as long as it still works. There are some out there that enjoy the old theme more, so this is perfect for them.

This theme is made for everyone who doesn’t like the new default theme of Firefox 2.0. It is not meant to revert all GUI changes in FF2.0, but rather to change the icons back and to remove skinned stuff so that the default OS look is used whenever possible.

Sidebar Icons

Navigating through our browser should be a customizable and enjoyable process. The last time I tried to use the Opera browser, I got lost in less than five minutes. Thankfully for Mozilla fans, Firefox gives you more room to customize than anybody else out there. One example of this at work is the Sidebar Icons extension.

How To Make Firefox Look Like IE

Now I don’t know why you would want to do it, but it is possible.

We all know someone that is just a little too comfortable with that blue “e” but maybe there is something we can do about it. People love to use themes for Firefox and you will be able to use them to make it look like an entirely different browser. You can tell from the screenshots just how realistic it looks in both the Luna theme and the Classic Windows theme. I know plenty of people that would not be able to tell a difference.

Maybe this is the way you trick those family members that are scared of Firefox into using the better browser?

Link Alert

Wouldn’t you like to know what type of file you are about to visit just by hovering over the link? That is what the folks who wrote this next extension must have had in mind. The Link Alert Firefox extension changes the cursor when you hover over a link to show you what type of file it is. If it is a .txt file, you get a little notepad icon. If it is an image, then you get a little picture icon. Such a simple idea, but it works and works well.
