Thanks for the tip! That is sooo much better.

FlashGot - Great downloading app. Works with third-party downloaders.

Fasterfox - Makes everything faster - and has a cool timer thing on the bottom right of the screen.

Tab X - Adds a close button to each of the browser tabs - this is a MUST HAVE extension. at least try it out, this is the way tabs should be.
Tab X sounds nice, but, you know you can close a tab by middle-clicking on it right? :hide:

The neat thing is that you can open links in new tabs by middle-clicking them (or ctrl+clicking them; you can also middle-click bookmarks or even the back and forward buttons to open things in new tabs).

So you can visit a forum and middle-click all the topics that interest you and have them all load in the background while you get to them one at a time. It also simplifies window management since you can resize, minimize, whatever a single window instead of all of them. It really grows on you once you get used to it.

About the textboxes: Firefox 1.5 has a new feature where you can create domain-specific style rules. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\<random string>.default\chrome\ and create a file called usercontent.css. Then you can add something like...
Code:
@-moz-document domain(forum.interference.com) {
	textarea
	{height: 20em; width: 50em;}
}
...which'll make your text boxes pretty big.

Oohhh, I'll have to try that when I get home. Thanks!

Same deal, except you create the file in ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/chrome.

I use Safari. It took me along time to let go of IE, but it was worth it. I'm sure in a few years I will be ready to make the Firefox switch.
