Firebird has flown the coop, Firefox has landed

Most of you that are interested in this sort of thing probably know this already, but the latest version of Mozilla’s standalone browser has now been released.

My current theme of choice is iCandy Jr, with corresponding CuteMenu icons

And then of course there are the obligatory mods to the user files.

And in just a couple hours you’ll have set-up your perfect browser, easy as cake 😉
