Rein Theme for Firefox Does Monochrome Right!

Rein, which in German means “pure”, is one of the best looking simple themes I have seen in a while.  Usually the more colorful themes catch my eye the most but this one is well worth checking into.

Here is a screenshot of this awesome monochrome flavored theme:

You could definitely say this theme was offbeat and a ‘bit different for sure.  You can pick up the Rein theme for Firefox 3 and up over at the Firefox Add-ons web site.  Also, when your there scroll down to the “advanced details” section for a few more tweaks of your own you can add to this elegant skin for Firefox.

Simple RSS Reader

simple-rss-firefox Maybe your not a RSS feed junkie like I am, but you do like to do some occasional headline tracking from time to time.  Simple RSS Reader might be the extension for you, as it does exactly what you would think.  It is a simple little RSS reader (minus the geeky complications).

The hardest part about Simple RSS Reader is adding the RSS feeds.  Just click on the blue RSS icon and give a name and URL to each.  That is it.  The thing I like most about this add-on is the fast forward, rewind,  pause, stop and play options for the ticker you get at the top.

You have your headline or link at the left, your source in the middle and then your controls on the far right.  An entire feed reader all in one toolbar.  It also has a very small memory footprint, so if you are staying away from add-ons that eat up too much of your RAM you have no need to worry about the Simple RSS Reader.  It might be the best of the RSS news ticker extensions.

You can pick it up at the official web site or the Firefox Add-ons siteOh and if you need an RSS feed to start your collection with, I have a great one for you: http://feeds.feedburner.com/firefoxfacts (shameless plug I know…)

Really Simple Notepad for Firefox

Need to jot something down real quick before you forget, and don’t want to be bothered launching another web site or program to do it?  The Really Simple Notepad bookmarklet is just what the forgetful web user needs.

Just drag and drop this link to your bookmarks toolbar:

Now when you need it, hit the bookmarklet link and up will come a popup window where you can type. The fun doesn’t stop there though. If you want to save what you have put in, just hit Ctrl+S to bring up the “Save As” menu. Make sure you set it to save as a text file and you have a simple backup of what you just wrote.

Thanks goes out to 7 is 7 for providing this hidden browser treasure.

Finger Licking Good – hmmXP

Simple, yet different the hmmXP theme makes a perfect companion for Firefox.

hmmmXP Theme

No huge distractions here. It is simple, lightweight but still gives you that visual refresh you might be looking for when changing your Firefox theme around. The light blueish-purple is a welcome too as it is all very pleasing to the eye. Mix that with the hint of green and the theme – it is delicious. I would lick it if I could, but I have a feeling my monitor wouldn’t like that too much.

Extero – Clean, Yet Different Theme

Extero Theme for Firefox

The Extero theme for Firefox is something mixed between a stylish vibe and a familiar face.

TwisterMC is at it again with another off the wall – yet creatively inspiriting Firefox theme that I am sure more than a few of you will enjoy.

Here is how he describes the theme:

I tried to take a different avenue with extero and break away from the norm just a little bit. It’s not crazy different, but there are some oddities that make extero unique.

Overall yet another that deserves to be in anybody’s collection.

14ZKidz Theme for Firefox

It seems like there are less and less Firefox themes being released these days. Has every good design been done? Well right about when you start to think that another one comes along to take over your browser’s look and feel.

14ZKidz

The oddly named 14ZKidz theme has a colorful (but not kick you in the face with glee) look to it. As you know by now, I like the simple ones – and this one delivers it as good as any of the other boys on the block do.
