I’m retiring from Firefox theming.

It’s been a fun journey over the past 5 years creating Firefox themes. I created nearly a dozen themes, stating with iPox, and I’ve got over 5 million downloads! However, I just can’t keep up.

iAqua Has a New Home & Firefox 3 Compatibility

A big thanks to Jivko Evgeniev who heard the call for help and has taken iAqua and ran with it. It’s alive and well and running nicely in Firefox 3.5! I’m really happy at how iAqua has grown in the hands of another developer. One of the downsides to letting go is worrying about what...

My Themes and Firefox 3.5

Good news, I’ve gone though and updated all my themes and extensions to work with Firefox 3.5! There are no major issues, but there are some minor ones. Like the bottom part of the scrollbar is missing and secure pages don’t render the secure part of the URL bar.  I consider these to be pretty...
