Ryan Cassin writes, "Many people who are in the #mozillazine conversation know about Dino, but I'd like to take time right now and quickly introduce readers of mozillazine.org to Dino as well. Essentially, Dino is a set of Patches (which come in an easy to install XPI) which add a wide array of options to Mozilla. Included is the ability to remove the print and search buttons from the main toolbar, and toggle the bookmarks menu and the home button from the personal toolbar. Also included is a notepad-like sidebar. Why not head over to the dino homepage at and give it a whirl?"
#4 Bad implementation

The implementation replaces navigator.xul, etc.. why happens if someone else makes their own modifications to navigator.xul? why not use dynamic overlays instead?
Overlays are kind of the equivalent of runtime "patch" for XUL - add/remove XUL elements, etc as the document is loaded - this way as navigator.xul changes, dino will stay in sync.
