Maroon Project - Making Firefox more like Opera



  • I have started a project to make Firefox more like Opera. I'm keen to meet like-minded people who can help with the project. I've only just started. Here is some of the work I have done so far: https://vimeo.com/84521523 https://vimeo.com/84437405 https://vimeo.com/84437403 Firefox is highly customisable and it is already possible to achieve Opera’s look and behaviour in many ways, but only via a large number of extensions, scripts, userstyles, custom buttons and changes in about:config. Not to mention changing the theme. I want to create a clean and simple solution.



  • Please continue.
    Currently i have a customized Firefox with a 45+ extension, modified mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts and userchrome.css to archive Opera's features set (unfortunately, not all of Opera's killing features).



  • One feature which is irritatingly missing in Firefox is the auto-sorting of bookmarks after additions. Opera 12 was so good at this.



  • Unfortunately the sluggish UI of firefox can't be fixed with an extension… Or the behavior when loading a page in the background makes the navigation(scrolling) over the current tab painfully slow...



  • i like the auto sorting. opera introduced a lot of little things that made browsing so comfortable and this is just one of them.

    it's good to see your great work
    but it will be great to see it like a full theme for seamonkey - beleve me - it's much better then firefox only !!!
    and It will be amazing to see another Opera colorful icons packs with supplemental extension for it - to choose between icon packs and may be other options!

    I distrust all those band-aids someone call "add-ons".
    A proper browser should be usable out of the box - and configurable to user's liking. No home-brew third-party code must be allowed.
