Preferences Toolbar 2

The Preferences Toolbar allows you to quickly change many common user preferences without having to open a separate dialogue. It's recently been completely rewritten and a new version is now available. Preferences Toolbar 2 allows you to set even more prefs and adds user-agent string spoofing and several other useful features. This latest version is also completely customizable and can be easily toggled with a press of the F8 key. If that's not enough, there's also a button that takes you straight to MozillaZine. Go to the download page to install it now or get more information.

You are replying to this message

"First off it changes the on-load bitmap"

Why didn't you ask us to change that behaviour in the newsgroup? This kind of information will always be considered. In fact, we can a) make a backup of the original file or b) ask the users permission for it.

"Multizilla is to provide better tabbing"

And so we do.

"the tabs have a look that's too active"

You can simply change your userChrome.css. You obviously didn't ask for it in the newsgroup. in

"I found that tabbing with MultiZilla is a tad bit slower that tabbing natively"

How can that be? MultiZilla makes use of the same native tabbed UI as mozilla does. We only extend the basic features, and that can't slow things doen.

"You want to tell users that???"

Yes, because mozilla and MultiZilla are testbeds only. It's not made for the general end-users.

"Besides that is NOT what the FAQ on the multizilla site says."

The FAQ also states that we're working on it...
