Try the new Mac OS X UI for Firefox 3

The Firefox 3 developers have been working on a visual refresh that integrates more tightly into the OS, and the Mac OS X version is looking pretty sweet. Well, public opinion varies greatly – from people who feel that it’s a rip off of Safari to those who really like the Brushed Metal look (myself included).


Well, if you wanna check out the proposed Mac OS X Firefox 3 UI for yourself, grab yourself a copy of Firefox 3 Beta 1 and go get the Proto theme.

The Proto theme looks really nice. I’ve got it installed on Firefox 3. I’ve got a question about Firefox 3 on Mac, though. I really like Firefox and usually have it set as my default browser, but when I installed Firefox 3 (I made sure it didn’t override Firefox 2), it prevented me from setting Firefox 2 as the default web browser. The same thing happened to my while I tested Gran Paradiso Alpha 7 and 8. Do you know of any way to set Firefox 2 as a default?

Hmm I’ve had that happen to me once or twice but it somehow went away. Does it help if you go to Options in Firefox 2 and click “Check Now” next to “Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup” in the Main options tab?
