Get the New Firefox 4 Look in Your Current Firefox

So you have installed Firefox 3.6 – the latest version of Firefox. One of the rich features of Firefox 3.6 is that you don’t require to restart the browser after installing an add-on or theme.

Upcoming Design of Firefox 4

Below is an image from the Mozilla Wiki which shows how the new interface of Firefox 4 might look.

Now if you are impressed with the upcoming Firefox design and want to try it now, the Fx4 add-on for Firefox is worth a try. This add on, merged with the Fx4 theme will give your current Firefox the new Firefox 4 look.

Install fx4 Firefox add-on.

Install Fx4 Firefox theme.

I tried both the theme and the extension and here is how my Firefox 3.6 looks:

Now that’s cool. The tab effects are impressive and the combo buttons (stop, refresh) reduce clutter. On this page, you can tell the developers about changes you’d like to see.
