Although the theme supports Aero Glass effects, it is completely optional. The theme looks good even on systems without Aero. I personally prefer to use the theme with the menu bar hidden. If you feel that you can’t do without the menu bar, you can use the Hide Menubar extension for Firefox to temporarily hide the menu bar.

TwentyTen is one of the best Firefox themes we have come across. Its biggest strength is its minimalism. Give it a try and let us know if you loved it as much as we did.

Mozilla Developer Sheds Some More Light on the New Firefox 4.0 Theme

Mozilla has been working hard on giving Firefox 4.0 a facelift. Stephen Horlander, who has been a long time Mozilla contributor, has shared some more information about the upcoming user interface (UI) changes.

The new skin will eliminate the Menu Bar and instead tuck away all the options within a single application menu. This is similar to what you may have seen in Windows 7 applications like Paint and WordPad as well as the recently released Opera 10.5 pre-alpha.

The other big change in Firefox 4.0 will be the placement of the tab bar. According to current plans, the tab bar will be now positioned above the address bar. However, the tab bar will not be merged with the title bar. The title bar will be retained in order to house the application button. There will be numerous other changes all around including new icons and refined toolbar appearance.

The Firefox 4.0 UI is still a work in progress. However, it is definitely shaping up to be an impressive update to the existing skin. What do you think about the changes? Do you prefer having a simple single menu instead of a menu bar? Don’t forget to let us know.
