A new look for a new Firefox.
The default Firefox look is shall we say... not very colorful. sure you can install some themes to fix this but what if the only thing you want is to change the color of Firefox itself? this is where AnyColor comes in. you can select from several presets or make your own look using custom colors, headers and footers. Unfortunately after installing this extension i had a noticeable drop in performance while using Firefox, it was not much but it was noticeable. since AnyColor is still in development i hope that the performance will get better on in the future but right now i think i am gonna pass on this extension. tough this could be related to my system since my computer is not very fast by today' s standards.
In conclusion if you want to change the color of Firefox AnyColor will do the trick but be ready for some slight drop in performance while browsing. Available for Firefox 3.0 and above.

(To install the extension you will need a Firefox addon account)
