Avast responds to Symantec's jaded criticisms of free antivirus (Download Squad)

Aug 6th 2009 8:07AM As with most software, you can disable the skins/themes when you install, or later in the 'preferences' tab.

I'm an AVG guy, but Avast is an excellent product.

Firefox 3.5 is out, adds private browsing, tab tearing and more (Download Squad)

Jun 30th 2009 10:51AM It broke about 50% of my add ons including Tab Mix Plus. But overall it works well, I can go a while at work without TM+, but not at home.

Mozilla retires Firefox 2 (Download Squad)

Dec 19th 2008 8:09AM I was an early adopter of FF3 and HATED it. After letting some updates come down, I tried again a couple of months ago and I love it now.

All of your add-ons from FF2 should work now with FF3. If not then you should consider switching to something new and different. There isn't an old Add On that I've seen that hasn't been 'replaced' by a new version/copy.

Let me suggest a few add-ons, if you REALLY can't live without FF2:

First off, there is a theme called "winstripe" (I think) that simulates the look and feel of FF2.

Then try these add-ons:

Tab Mix Plus
Foxmarks
Toolbar Buttons

And I know that there is an Add On that turns off the "Smartbar" or whatever that thing is called. I tried it but went back to the FF3 default.

Try websites like http://lifehacker.com/ for hints and tips (as well as places to rant and rave)

Peace

Dec 19th 2008 7:59AM You guys have it right on. If people want to vent their spleen let them do it elsewhere. Trolls are so 2003.
