How to make Firefox look and behave like Google Chrome

Want to get Chrome’s look and functionality in Firefox? Here is what you will require –1) Chromifox theme and 2)Total NoChrome addon for Firefox.

Chromifox, called “coat of Chrome for Firefox”, is a bright and soft blue theme for Firefox 3 on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, inspired by the appearance of the Google Chrome web browser. Chromifox gives Firefox the almost Chrome like appearance except the tab bar and title bar which is fused into one in Chrome. This is fixed by another addon called Total NoChrome.

Total NoChrome is a modification of the Total ReChrome addon which places the tab bar at the top and changes the appearance of the title bar  bringing it closer to the Chrome look.

That will take care of the looks. Now for the functionality. To get Chrome’s features in Firefox, get the following extensions.

1. Stealther or Distrust for incognito mode or private browsing. Private browsing is available in Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 though. (Original post)

2. Download Statusbar to put the download manager on the status bar. (Original post)

3. Speed Dial to fill up the empty tab page with thumbnail to your favorite bookmarks. You can also try Auto Dial that displays the most frequently visited pages. (Original post)

4. Locationbar2 to highlight domain in address bar.

5. New Tab Button on Tab Right to put newly opened tabs next to the parent tab.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
