In a little more detail...

I'm would have been a good developer, but I got messed up, and I'm not very good at reading or communication, so I never got far in the direction I was going. I did teach myself programming on my calculator in 9th through 11th grade (high school). I taught myself how to program complex code very efficiently in an interpreted language. I was not your average "Text-based game" programmer. I was an algorithmic engineer. I wrote programs that would do my math homework for me. I even got credit in one math class for writing a program on an assignment instead of a math explanation. My most complex project was a 11-page (12pt monospace) program that was a fractal generator (IFS, or Iterated Function Systems). It used almost every data type available on the calculator, including GDB (Graph Database), u v and w (weird variables that interpret expressions and store the resulting value), Y= functions, parametric functions, strings (of course), floating point decimals (of course), floating point decimals in lists. The program even backed up user variables to lists and GDB and restored them when ending the program. There was one line of code messed up, and I could never find it.

I am a geek. I know alot. And, I'm a geek's geek. I know alot about alot. If I had to give myself a job, it would be the project coordinator who oversees the development in every area and how they fit together (sort of a CEO).

I know a few languages, but I am not a mega-genius in them.
TI-BASIC (I am a mega-genius in this one)
C++ (Not too great at object-oriented stuff and header files)
Java (Getting better each week; I just don't know enums or every API available yet)

I'm knowledgeable in computer science, computer engineering, health, computer-related health, light and lighting, networks and networking, IT, photography, Windows, UNIX-generic, Linux (Debian-specific), multimedia, typography, raster/vector graphics, video formats and encoding, audio formats and encoding.

My life would suck without you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I liked it so much, I bought the subscription version. I don't use Firefox mobile, so I don't absolutely need to buy the subscription, but it's inexpensive, and I get to use it, if I ever need to.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works. I wish there were some extra features. I want to add the features, but I don't know how to contribute code to a group project.

It's clear you understand design.
I like the scroll bar. feels solid. i'm still trying to understand the effect of the little waves in the mac-style scroll bar. What does it accomplish? why is it not overdone?

I like the buttons. They retain that satin glass look with internal reflections that made Firefox's default theme so successful.

But Mac OS X? Uncool.

Huh? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hmmm, this is not a theme. Why is it listed in the Themes?

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Fantastic, but lacking Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is great, but there should be an option to backup all your installed themes and extensions. I have no problems with the service or the extension. It is very stable, but i would like to see that additional feature. I suggest leaving it disabled by default, because it can be annoying to people.

Boo Toolbars. I don't like spam either.
"Uninstalled due to inclusion of toolbar spam in an update.

Definitely shows the plugin is malware, and not to be trusted with your browsing experience."

Hey you might look for someone to recheck your coding and clean it up. the design is solid, and it has potential, but there are a significant number of users who have Mac and Linux OS's, so realize that you are losing viewers. I know it doesn't make a life-changing difference. I'm just putting it out there.
-1 star for the problems and OS incompats.

rancesc, it looks really good.

I think the IE6 icons fit well in the theme, because they are square shaped. I'm sick of all these circles next to circles in the themes. it makes my head spin. It actually does. I'm going to have to go take an aspirin soon. I've been looking at themes all day.
