I'm Blown Away!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
After I updated to Firefox 3, I was hating life. So many changes were not to my liking, including my old theme was no longer compatible. I didn't really like the themes that are available but I had to pick one, begrudgingly.
Then just today, I stumbled across Classic Compact and installed it. Wow!!!!! It is hands down the best theme out there (I know everyone says that about their favorite theme).
Add the options package and you can customize to your hearts content. What other theme allows you to customize it? None I've ever used.
As if the author read my mind, he included options that I was begging for with other themes. Some of my favorites include: My tabs don't have huge spaces in between rows. I can add a separator bar in between toolbar icons. I can round the edges on tabs and bars. I can select the style and size of buttons. The colored background on the address bar for https sites that FF3 discarded. (I changed mine to a bright green using the Stylish add-on. Sorry, I don't like yellow).
I only have one wish list item: Can you include the option to alter tab height? I would like them just a wee bit bigger for easier and faster scanning. I usually have about 3 rows of tabs open. The small tab titles are not easy to pick out of a crowd.
The author has put in a lot of work creating this fantastic theme. I wish I had found it a long time ago.
Tab height option will be added
Being able to customize the height of tabs is the option that I'm getting the most requests for, so I will be working on adding this option to Classic Compact Options. As the extension is also being translated into other languages and I want to make sure I have a full appreciation of what would be the most popular options to add before pushing out my next release of Classic Compact Options, I'm targeting an August release date for Classic Compact Options v1.1.
