iPox Aqua Shines in Firefox 3

I realized over the past weekend that iPox Aqua was 90% the same as iPox.  And since iPox has been updated for Firefox 3, iPox Aqua shouldn’t take to much time.  So I’ve updated it. iPox Aqua has the same style and feel as iPox, with a bit more colorful buttons and brighter blues. Now...

Why I would quit theming today.

I love to create Firefox themes, make addons and lots of freebees that others often enjoy.  I do this on my free time and love to see people enjoy them.  But some days, I’m ready to throw in the towel. I’ve recently got a few comments from a visitor saying “hurry up and release the...
