I have been suffering from a bit of bloat from firefox 2.x of late, so I figured, “hey, it’s been a little while, let’s try firefox 3, they should have ironed out any kinks by now”.
OMG! Thank god for the oldbar addon! It restored the “Awesome Bar” of firefox 3 to the neat, compact and still useful bar of firefox 2.
And also, thank goodness there are people out there that make compact themes and non sucky themes for firefox 3. Have you seen how GINORMOUS that default theme’s back button is? You’d think that they want people to always hit the back button. I’m running iFox Smooth. I’d have chosen the macfox II but it doesn’t work on firefox 3. :(
Enough with the pandering to the lame n00bs who don’t know what a back button is, or can’t find the delete key. That, or at least give power users the ability to restore things to a non pandering setting.
