I prefer the Qute theme, which was the official Firefox UI throughout the pre-0.9 betas. I guess they dropped it because it looked too XP-ish.
But Qute was recently re-released for Firefox 3. I don't like Firefox 3's button images since they're too "thin" whereas Qute's are nice and solid.
I've been told to not install Google Toolbar on any of the machines for development. It has a known record of accidentially indexing websites that shouldn't be accessible to public.
It shouldn't be matter if the website only has internal IPs, or has properly configured access control. But somehow if other programmers will ask you opinion on certain page, I simply couldn't make sure that the website is properly configured and has chance
to expose things unintentionally.
This issue had wreaked security hovac in a few companies in Taiwan, so I'd rather not take the risk.
