Linux Mint continues to be awesome. I’ve re-arranged my desktop considerably and am finding it quite pleasing. I also spent a bit of time simplifying my firefox browser. There are lots of helpful sites regarding editing the firefox userchrome file. You can seriously re-design firefox’s interface however you like. I combined my file bar with my address bar and got rid of all the extra bells and whistles on it i never use to conserve space. I also got rid of the help menu option, because again I never used it. This freed up an entire toolbar of space. It’s almost as slim as Google Chrome but you know.. better because it’s firefox. I also redesigned my OpenOffice Splash screen and my linux mint start button. The latter of which you can see in the screen shot below.
