Missing the way Internet Explorer 5 looked on an old Mac? Well, this theme is a ‘bit of a throwback to another era. The Internet Explorer 5 Mac theme lets you relive the glory days of another browser through Firefox. This theme is for Firefox 20 and further so check it out and let me know what you think of it.
Here is a Internet Explorer 5 Mac edition theme for Firefox 20 and further. Really want to make Firefox look a little more like a Mac-powered Microsoft coded browser? Then this theme might be perfect for you. You can pick up this Firefox theme from the Mozilla Add-ons website.
Want to opt out of being targeted by advertising networks out there? The Beef Taco add-on for Firefox will help protect you. Once installed, this extension sets permanent opt-out cookies to stop behavioral advertising for over 100 different advertising networks. Some of the companies include:
Talk about Christmas coming early. I just found on Microsoft’s new plugin page for Windows Live Writer a plugin that gives me the ability to blog about anything I find in Firefox inside of the awesome Windows Live Writer publishing tool. The Blog This for Firefox add-on is the extension you need, if you wish to do the same, and here is how you get it.
Is it fair that other companies can install unrequested plugins to Firefox? It is happening right now, and there is not a lot we can do about it. Asa Dotzler brought this topic up in one of his most recent blog posts and I do think it is an interesting debate. The three big tech giants out there find it ok to add things to Firefox without asking me first. Google does it. Microsoft does it. Even Apple does it.
So we are to believe that Firefox and Chrome are both insecure, difficult to use, and unreliable? The Internet Explorer team might want to check their calendars, because last time I checked – it is June 26th, not April 1st.
If that isn’t enough – they also have a MythBusting page. What is your favorite “fact” they are claiming?
Ever wanted to add Microsoft’s Live Search to your Firefox browser?
No, me neither – but they have released and add-on to help you do just that.
The Live Search add-on is a little late to the dance, however I am not going to totally shoot them down. At least they are making the effort, right? What does it do? It gives you the “suggestion” feature for search terms when you search using Live search via the Firefox search box.
Definitely, if you are a fan of Live search, give this a shot. All three of you should be extremely happy.
Wow, a Firefox theme based on Microsoft Office? Your first thought might be this theme is about as exciting as a “watching paint dry” extension for the browser. Thankfully though, I can say it does deliver a pretty nice looking browsing interface.
Extra features: Add one or more of the following pairs of lines to your userChrome.css file to customize your Office theme:
/* change the tab close button to a different and larger close button */ @import url("chrome://global/skin/alt-close-button.css");
/* always use green back/forward buttons */
This theme based on Microsoft Office can be picked up on the Firefox Add-ons web site.
Joe Wilcox over at eWeek has put together a pretty interesting graph charting the adoption rate for the web browsers out there in 2007. The graph and story along with it are both pulling information from the recent Forrester Research report, “Enterprise Desktop and Web 2.0/SAAS Platform Trends, 2007.”
As you can see Internet Explorer is still pulling head as you would assume it would do, but Firefox still is holding a healthy share of the market. Internet Explorer 7 itself still can’t beat the ugly stepsister that is Internet Explorer 6 though.
