  1. Wow! These are the best vista AVIs in XP to vista customization ever!
  2. OK, I think we all use firefox, and newer IE7, because firefox is faster,safer, more reliable and more expendable then any browser present these days. But we are customizing everything right? This is a tutorial on how to perfectly make firefox look like vista. Why? Because we want a vista look in our XP, and because the skin to be used - is one of the most popular and most efficient of all. Also i wanted to share with you guys the best addons and settings I use... You can see in the preview typical screenshot of Internet Explorer in Vista, and pimped firefox! Some similarities there huh? Step 1: :download: Download FireFox(5.7 MB) Every computer must have firefox installed - is it a mac, or linux or PC! Step 2: Once you installed firefox, you will see the default theme, but no tabs - go to Tools>Options>Tabs and check the "Always show the tab bar" Step 3: The most important thing - download and install Vista Aero skin , once you installed it - go to Tools>Add-ons>Themes and select to use Vista-Aero - restart firefox. Step 4: You will see the new look, once you restarted firefox, but this is not enough for a vista feeling, follow next steps to make firefox even more closer to IE7 Step 5: Right-click menubar and select "customize" - then just drag and drop the elements that you don't need from firefox to the window, or those that you need - from the window to firefox. I recommend just leaving navigation bar, search bar, and bookmarks. Step 6: Download and install Personal Menu and myFireFox & Vista-aero Modifier. With personal menu - you can right-click the menubar and select to hide it! You can always unhide the menubar by right-clicking areas near navigation panel and deselecting hide menubar. myFireFox & Vista-aero Modifier is the perfect addon for this theme - You can simply click on tools on the right top side, and select theme settings - from there you can customize the theme. Step 7: Optional addons: Firefox Showcase - allows you to see all open pages thumbnails when pressing the showcase (4 squares) button integrated in Vista-Aero theme. Firesomething - a great addon for firefox - it allows to change the window title - for eg Windows Internet Explorer instead of Mozilla firefox, there are other funny integrated names - like "Mozilla Firebadger" and "Mozilla Poweroyster" And that's it! With the add-ons mentioned above you'll have perfect IE7 Firefox! You can download alot more useful addons - here are few that I recommend: Dictionaries These addons allow to have a spell-checking sequences in firefox when typing - very useful, and supports almost every language! Fasterfox - just amazing addon - it speeds up firefox very much - pages load in seconds: Internet Explorer loading it's own home page: ~6 secs Firefox with FasterFox addon loading Internet Explorer homepage: ~2 secs I chose IE7 homepage - because I think it's very overcrowded with useless eyecandy (m$ fails again) - and perfect for testing (other pages like DA load instantly on firefox) AdBlock plus - this adblocker can block any annoying add (especially flash ads, that are heavy to load for some connections)! And it saves settings for websites - when you come back - the ads are gone. FoxyTunes - very nice music player - the controls are integrated in the statusbar - so no extra space is needed. The addons do not slow down firefox, I personally have about 12 add-ons - and no affect on the browsing experience! But if you install too much add-ons - firefox may slow down...

Note: real Internet Explorer from Vista Ultimate was used during the development of this tutorial, but i assure you that I used it for no more then 4 minutes (security and reasons) I always use firefox!

The screenshot feature will be enabled in Release Candidate 1. 2 Versions: The final release will have 2 versions - lite (simmilar to this one) and full - with some files in it like wallpapers, screensavers etc - ~30-50 MB Release Candidate 1 is coming near Christmas! Final - new year. PS This is probably my best Deviation ever! Comments are most welcome! Please tell me what you think! Report bugs, suggestions! © Copyright 2007-2008
  5. WMP11 Aurora Glass DOWNLOAD This is not just a skin, this is a resource! Windows XP only! This is not just a skin, this is a resource! Windows XP only!!! Updated! Enhanced toolbar - to look like vista. Fixed close button position. Fixed "white pixels" issue. Fixed mini player. WMP11 Aurora Glass for windows media player 11 (latest 11.0.5721.5145) + Change version manually tutorial inside! I made this one - so it would feel like aero on aurora wallpaper - why aurora? - because i's very popular and nice. Before you ask - it's impossible to have real glass in XP, and I can't make this for vista. Instructions on how to install you'll find inside. If the instruction on how to change version does not work, please tell me immediately. -- This project is probably the most challenging, creating perfect fitting colors and sides of bitmaps is really hard. Especially the top frame - it was ment to be 1 colored bitmap, without aero stripes, but I found a way to put the longer frame. The mini player was some trouble - and it is not very beautiful too... But maybe I'll fix it.
