Are you well fed?

Ben Ward has designed a cool t-shirt based on the semi-ubiquitous web feed icon with the caption “Well Fed”. The shirt is pretty comfortable; It’s not too flimsy or heavy. And the caption has an extra level of irony for those of us who are a bit, er, soft around the middle. Order from Spreadshirt (in North America or Europe)

Silliness is its own reward (Updated with extra mirth!)

Looking over the selection of Firefox buttons at the new SpreadFirefox site, I was inspired to make this:

Get Fiberfox!

To the obvious question, I say: Why not? This is an audience participation blog post. Warm up your Photoshops and your MacPaints and lets see your take on the little browser that could!

UPDATE: This comes from Scott @ techory.com:

Get Tirefox - All season browser

He has another one on his blog. Cool stuff!

UPDATE 2: Daniel Keep sent this one through email. Thanks Daniel :)

Closing in on Firefox 1.0: the Mac user experience

Now that the dust is settling from the 0.9 release, I thought I’d turn my attention to the Mac Firefox experience and what I think needs to happen to make 1.0 great.

Firefox 0.9 is out!

Firefox 0.9 has been released. This new version includes a lot of great features and optimizations as well as a new default theme.

Mac users will allso notice that the default theme also gets a set of Aqua icons to replace the previous “button” icons. The new icons are more consistent with the Aqua icon guidelines and are easier to hit with the mouse. They also work with the Windows default theme to create a unified look across platforms.

I will create a Graphite version soon. Oh, and before you ask me to put the old icons back, please turn on “small icons” and live with the new ones for a week. Then we’ll talk :)
