Gpanion is a sexy dashboard for accessing your Google apps

Google has a lot of services, and let's face it, many of us use several of them throughout our daily lives. Most people probably don't even know half of them, and people who can name 20 of them probably don't bother devoting bookmark space to more than a handful (I know I don't). If you like the idea of having all of them on hand at a moment's notice but don't feel like making an entire bookmark...

Mozilla finally ships new theme elements in Firefox 3.7 nightly build

It's been known for quite some time that Mozilla was planning to re-skin Firefox 3.7. At long last, the old default toolbar icons have finally been replaced in recent nightly Minefield builds. The new icons are nearly identical to the ones we first saw last year in the mockups. Support for Aero transparency hasn't been integrated yet, though it remains part of the 3.7/4.0 Windows Theme...

You can also install the icon set by opening a terminal and...

Opacity lets you create great screen graphics

We've covered a bucketload of image editors here at Download Squad recently: from Photoshop Elements, to stylish OS X apps to great Windows image manipulators. But if you're someone who works with icons and screen graphics, you're probably using something other than Photoshop Elements to create your stunning vector icons and glyphs. Sure, there's the brawn of Illustrator if you want to spend big...

Give Ubuntu a facelift with new community themes and icon sets

A lot of new Ubuntu users are put off by the default color scheme. "Brown and orange? Those are colors a non-winning football franchise would pick." (you know I love you, Browns!) Well, it's really not all that hard to tweak your interface to something more "you" in Ubuntu -- and soon there will be some more default options available. Four new community-developed themes are now available, and...

Ask DLS: why is every damn web browser logo round?

Maybe you noticed this ages ago, but the thought just occurred to me (and most of the rest of our crew after I pinged the list) this afternoon. Why is it that every web browser has a round icon/logo? Don't get me wrong - we kicked it around on the list and there's the obvious roundness in the phrase World Wide Web. But is there any other sector where the iconography is this uniform? Netscape...

iConvert: web-based icon converter

Ever see an icon you like, but when you go to download it, you find out it's in the wrong format? You could copy and paste it into an image editor, and save it in the correct format, but some editors don't save .icns, .ico, or other popular icon types. iConvert does, though, and it's web-based. It also works with Windows, Mac and Linux-compatible formats. Just upload a file in any one of the...

Dress up your Tweets with Twitterkeys

Are you leaving work early to fly off somewhere with your sweetie? You could Tweet that to your followers on Twitter, or you could tell them, "I'm going to ??? out of work early today and hop a ??? to Montego Bay with my true ♥." Adding symbols to Tweets used to involve remembering a whole bunch of keystroke combinations but thanks to TwitterKeys, created by the folks at The Next Web Blog,...

While Windows lets you add a "desktop" toolbar to the taskbar that will let you launch items saved on your desktop, DeskTopOnTop goes one step further and actually shows you a visual representation of your desktop.

ICONlook: icon search engine

When it comes to tracking down some icons for a project -- nothing real fancy, and preferably under some kind of open license -- image searching on Google doesn't always do the trick. ICONLook is a search site that you can try instead: it's specifically for icons, and it has some useful features that make it worth a peek if you're in a pinch. These are generally OS-type icons, for stuff like...
