Free Network Monitoring Software
Capsa Network Analyzer 7.4.1
Thx for the very good software Bob. Love it.

Stumbled upon this today : Stratiform (Addon for Mozilla Firefox 4), Cant stop playing with it. Worth a try.

You can customize toolbar buttons, icons, text fields, colors. It also allows you to change tabs style and color. You can also customize orange Firefox button's appearance. Even you can change its text.

That addon is clever...rather than change the theme, just a few minor tweaks. The orange button is not my favorite colour so that is solved :D

Probably just leave it as Firefox though ;D

Clever it might be but it doesn't work with many third party themes, the one I'm using being one (I also use ColourfulTabs add-on) and for what it brings I wouldn't use the default FF theme, so it has been uninstalled.

I don't get Firefox in the AppBar (as Stratiform calls it), just the FF icon, makes the whole thing smaller so no problem there.

Mine looks very similar to scott's app menu button, with silver bars as sir D's. Cool eh? :) Try the google chrome like toolbar. Looks cool and neat.

Can't try the Chrome Like toolbar as I have uninstalled the add-on (would also have to abandon my current theme, no thanks) and I was never a chrome fan anyway ;D

Here you go again, diving off at a tangent you really are a plonker. Where in what you quoted does it say anything about XP or any OS  ::)

I'm stuck with nothing, it is a choice my system could take win7 if I wanted to fork out £100 for win7. But why would I do that when XP Pro does everything that I need of it and there really is nothing in win7 that is a must have killer function.

You really are a bit of a hypocrite as you are also using XP, why have you not upgraded it to win7 or are you a closet Dinosaur. So I guess that the topic which browser do you use http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=74170.0, where Firefox has almost 47.3% of the vote means that they are stuck with firefox, it is a personal choice and nothing to do with OS you plonker.

I have win7 on my netbook and I wouldn't have chrome on that either. So far it is a pain in the ar** at times I have to wonder who owns my netbook me or win7; compared to my experience with XP Pro win7 has been a nightmare.
Roll on Microsoft's next attempt and see what that brings.

No one wants my XP sytem! :'(
Comparing Windows 7 on a capable system like mine is like comparing a Wright Brother's airplane to your Windows 7 system.  ;)

So why do keep up with the smartdumb a**ed remarks at every turn, it really is tiresome.

I and many others have the systems they have through choice, the fact that it doesn't  match your choice should be respected and not considered they are dinosaurs or you look like some kind of stalking troll.

By now hopefully you get the message I'm pi**ed off with your tiresome cr*p.

I'm happy being a dinosaur.  I like XP better than 7.

YoKenny,

Are you the real annoying orange?

Your orange colored avatar is suspicious.

You do have a habit of being annoying.
