Pimp my Firefox

Moz/FF

Firefox straight 'out of the zip' is ok, but there's a lot you can change, modify and improve. From performance to looks to usability, Firefox tuning gives you the power to make a browser specific to your needs and taste.

Yes, Firefox allows you to easily theme (or skin, as the kids say) your Firefox browser. Some classics? The Woody Firefox for surfer dudes, the Whitehart Firefox for the minimalists, and Littefox for those wanting to see more pixels of the content at the same time. Lastly, if you want your brow-brow to have more bling-bling, checknizz the PimpZilla themenizzle.

Fast is good. Fast and stable is even better. If there's one thing users of Opera and IE can usually win in an argument, it's the idea that Firefox renders ... s-l-o-w. If it was just IE, you could pass it off as IE is built into the underlaying OS for the most part. Opera, though, is an independent and has zippy fast rendering capabilities. In any case, there are Firefox configuration files you can tweak for a smoother browsing experience.
