It makes me sad that my soon to be step son will live without ever knowing what Netscape was. If you are feeling nostalgic for the classic browser, you can pick up the N2Scape theme for Firefox.

Here is a retro theme for you, make Firefox go back in time to the Netscape era:
Foxscape is a full featured retro theme for Firefox based on Netscape Communicator 4.8 on Windows. To be honest, I never did use the old Netscape very much. Never did like the look of it. You know what? Now I can not like the look of it again!
I am sure this theme will tug on the classic heart strings of somebody out there. If your missing the first generation of the browser wars, and you want to relive being the loser – give Foxscape a shot.
Now I know this must sound like some match made in Web 2.0 hell, but stick with me because it really is a pretty nice tool if you enjoy the popular social news Web site, digg.com.
Netscape’s Digg Tracker extension helps you keep tabs on what stories your Digg friends are digging, submitting, and commenting on. A new toolbar button (shown in the preview image) features the Digg digger.
When there is new activity by your friends (i.e., a new comment or a new story submission), the button will be activated and the digger will be shown with his trusty shovel. Clicking on the activated button will open a list of your friends’ activity in the sidebar, allowing you to easily browse the stories they’ve submitted, commented on, and dugg.
Now the whole Aluminium Kai theme was never one that I really liked much. Personally I would take a simple and clean layout over one like this any day. There has to be people out there that like it though, because I keep seeing it mentioned all over the place.
Now I guess it is not all that bad. If you are going to force me to say something nice about it, I like the color green? Yeah, that is all I got.
It is a question I am sure you have asked yourself at least once.
Recently, I have been pondering why is Firefox so darn popular? This is a question that I honestly ask myself sometimes, often while browsing the web from within the browser itself. The real trick is that there are so many different ways to answer this.
