Defaults are Dull!
Firefox users are growing in number, thanks to the browser’s usability and adherence to web standards, not to mention its popularity as an alternative to Internet Explorer. Born from the ashes of the failed Netscape Navigator browser following its browser wars defeat by Microsoft, Firefox brought tabbed browsing to popular use and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
When you install Firefox, by default a set of icons will be applied to your computer desktop, taskbar and Start menu. These are all designed to help you to identify the application when you next wish to launch it. However, you don’t need to be limited by these icons – others are available.
The web is awash with artistic endeavor, much of which takes the form of graphic design from enthusiasts and students, as well as the odd pro taking time out. As a result there are countless alternatives to the standard Firefox icons, and these can be added to your computer to replace the originals.
