Winstripe Modernized

Want to take Firefox 3 back to a simpler time?  With the Winstripe Modernized theme for Firefox, you can make it look like Firefox 1.5.

Winstripe Modernized for Firefox

There are a lot of people out there that still enjoy the “good ol’ days” of Firefox, and with this theme, you can re-live your memories while still getting all the benefits of the Firefox 3 upgrade.  Personally, I like this theme icons at least, a lot more than I do the current Firefox default theme.  Maybe I too am one of those who has an emotional bond with this previous version of the browser.

Oh how many hours we spent together, and long long nights.  It seems like it was only yesterday I first glanced my eyes on your little house home icon.. thingy?

Here are some special features of the theme:

  • URL Dropmarker has been Removed (check here if you need it)
  • The Stop and Reload buttons have been merged to save space
  • URL bar is colored green if the SSL cert is safe, yellow if weak and red it broken.
  • All Menus have Icons
  • Increased Font Size for the Menu Bar
  • Active Tabs now Have an Orange Border Line

Take a trip back to Firefox’s past and pickup the Winstripe Modernized theme at the Firefox Add-ons site.

hmmXP Theme for Firefox 3

Based around the hmmXP visual style for Windows, the hmmXP theme for Firefox gives you something familiar (that sort of Windows 9x look) with just a touch of visual appeal.  The theme is compact, but doesn’t feel as if everything is squeezed in just for the sake of squeezing it in.

As said by the author of this awesome theme, a lot of love has been put into it, so that it looks great in any windows theme.  If you want to pick it up, you can grab it on the Firefox Add-ons site or visit the official hmmXP theme site to get the latest version.

Turn Firefox into Netscape Communicator

Here is a retro theme for you, make Firefox go back in time to the Netscape era:

foxscape.

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.

Pacman

Come on, you know you need something to do while killing time at the office. You know you want to play Pacman inside of your favorite orange and blue browser. Adding Firefox and Pacman together is like peanut butter and jelly. They are two great flavors that just seem to go together.
