Does Webkit have a bug or are Mac programmers missing a step?

Apple’s Webkit is being built into all sort of Mac applications, however they all seem to share data and I don’t feel they should. As an example, if you log into your Google account in Safari, Shiira is also logged in. And it doesn’t stop there. GCal, CSSEdit and Journler all use webkit too so […]

Review my latest Firefox Extensions

If you’ve tried out GA? or Google Personalized Search Switch, please take a moment to either add a comment over at the extension’s page on the Mozilla Addon site (they are in the sandbox) or on the individual blog posts.

Simpsons Firefox Theme

It’s not exactly in English, but it doesn’t really matter. There is an official Simpsons Firefox theme promoting the movie. // Image lost. Sorry.

iAqua Firefox Theme Beta1

iAqua is my latest Firefox theme based off of Apple Mail’s interface and a mockup created by Mozilla. [image lost] This all started when I ran across a forum post over at MacThemes. Ed posted about an idea that Mozilla had for Firefox 2’s Mac interface. It never came to be, so I started working […]

Changing Fonts & Colors in Firefox Themes

Today’s question comes off the iPox Remix request line: How do I make the font on the bookmark toolbar change color when I hover over it? Since Firefox runs mainly on CSS, this is a pretty easy edit. Just go into /browser/browser.css and look for the following chunk of code: toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:hover, toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:hover:active, toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[open=”true”] { background: […]
