Thanks for that! :)

Just got an error that said Samurise can't run on Windows 7. It's weird because the screenshots show it running on 7. Will it work in compatibility mode?

Edit: Yup. Run in XP compatibility mode.

Any chance of running this in Windows 7 64bit? If so how? I tried compatibility mode and it would not work.

Run with admin rights and in XP SP3 mode. It will then be in your system tray.

Edit: Installing works can't get the plugins to work. :(

I like buttons. It's a combination of the Windows 8 Release Preview "Style" and the "Shine 2.0" theme. A New Start Button And New System Tray Icons.

How did you get the adress bar and I assume tabs, on FF at the same level as FF's button?

Firefox Add Ons:

  • Nav Bar On Title Bar
  • Classic Buttons
  • Faviconize Tab
  • Movable Firefox Button
  • (not really related, but I love this addon anyway) MouseZoom 0.4.9
  • (not really related, but I love this addon anyway) ScreenGrab 0.96.8c

And tweaks in the userchrome file.

Slightly OT but, does anyone know what this look is called? I have seen pics like that and I just love it. I am a beginner in PS, so I think it has to be achieved by color grading but how? It's good something of, I don't know how to describe it, woody color or you know slight black and white while the leaves really pop.I would be grateful if someone can point me to some tutorial.

lens blur or gradient blur with some color mapping or some color filtering applied as "color" or as "overlay" in some cases... that pic has some ever so slight color layering...

Thanks for your reply. The blur part could be shallow DOF, no? I was more talking about the color part of picture. How exactly do I achieve the colors of that pic?

No problem -o ;) well you'd use a graident and then set to color or overlay or even soft light or screen if you want it softer.... depending on the look you want.... or you can go to the layer's properties and go to the graident section and do it from there as well...

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
