One of the biggest advantages of Mozilla Firefox is that is very customizable. Considering the fact that most of my computering time happens in front of a browser, I prefer a custom look and feel experience.
My current theming setup uses the following extensions:
1. Default Firefox theme
2. Movable Firefox Button extension
3. Stylish extension with the following user styles:
- Firefox Choose Your Color
- Firefox New Button Styles

Some people are wondering why don’t they just implement a simple and powerful solution like Google+’s Circles?
Personally, I prefer the simplicity of Circles, but it is almost impossible for Facebook to have a similar implementation. If we step back for a moment, we will notice that, in this case, the key aspect is not defined by implementation, usability or any other technical aspects. It is all about 2 different concepts: Friends (@Facebook) and People (@Google Plus).
These two words are the key differentiators on which Facebook and Google + are trying to capitalize. In the end, I think that Facebook’s Friends concept will win. Why? The vast majority of internet users do not have the capacity or a direct, powerful reason to systemize and control the massive flux of content which goes through an online network. In addition, everyone agrees that the FRIENDS concept has many more characteristics established in people’s brains, which will help them to narrow down their contacts and the not-so-interesting flux of status updates.
