Classic Theme Restorer
Ditch Australis completely or simply fine-tune it to your tastes.

When Mozilla unveiled its new Australis user interface in Firefox 29, it met with the usual Marmite response – some loved it, more hated it, and some even went as far as to claim they’ll stop using Firefox because of it.

We love the new look, but if you don’t agree – or you’d like to be able to tweak small parts of the UI – then you need this add-on. Its rather clunky name in full - Classic Theme Restore (Customized Australis) - covers all bases. You can use it to remove all traces of the Australis or simply tweak certain aspects of it.

Once installed, the add-on will immediately restore your browser to the pre-Australis look, which includes the Firefox button if you’re running Windows (although it does leave the new hamburger menu alone).

If that’s a step too far, open Firefox’s Options menu and select Classic Theme Restorer. You’ll see a host of options spread out over four tabs – use the Main tab to customise the tab look as well as the Firefox button on Windows machines. You’ll also get a number of general user-interface options here.

Custom colors allows you to change the colour scheme for tabs – both active/hover/default and unread/new. The two Special tabs offer additional options that go beyond simply tweaking aspects of the Australis user interface.

Most tweaks are applied instantly the moment you tick or select a box, and helpfully Firefox’s default choices are clearly marked in dropdown menus to make it easy to undo your changes.

Changelog

Verdict:

An essential add-on if you really can’t stand the new Australis user interface in Firefox 29 or later, but also a useful customization tool in its own right.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
