Pimp Your Browser!

At 11:15 this morning, Jessamyn West gave a peppy talk about the Firefox browswer and all the neat things it can do. She really seemed to be having a good time, and so did her audience.

If you don’t know Firefox, you can check it out easily because it’s a free and open source browser. It’s mature, too, having been out of beta for more than 2 years and in vers 2 for 6 months.

Jessamyn demonstrated lots of cool things you can do to customize Firefox, like choosing different skins (themes), assigning icons to your favorite things ("I’m a sucker for these cute little buttons" she revealed), and changing the size of all your icons and fonts for easier reading.There are also tons of add-ons to play with.

Go to and join the fun!
