It’s flattering when someone likes what you do enough to come back and tell you about it. In this instance Niko used the ability to customise my Rainmeter suite to tweak the colours and edit the clock to best suit his needs and it looks great.

Almost out of beta with new features as always, I need to add repeat & shuffle buttons to my player skins…:)
Rainmeter is a desktop customization platform. Through Rainmeter, you can enhance your Windows computer at home or work with skins: handy, compact applets which float freely on your desktop, much like Windows Sidebar gagdgets, or dashboard widgets for the Mac. Rainmeter skins provide you with useful information at a glance. It’s easy to keep an eye on your system resources, like memory and battery power, or your online data streams, including email, RSS feeds, and weather forecasts. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and send your tweets to Twitter – all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking.
If there is one disappointment with Windows 7, it’s that the gadgets still look like a throwback to Vista and dare I say it Windows XP. That’s where Rainmeter steps in and makes you machine look like the 21st century…

So, Firefox remains 32-bit until 4.0 I suspect. Speaking of plugins, it’s possible to make it look more at home in Win7 using some of the plugins shown on this page. I’ve added:
and the rest I use diffent ones to suit my own needs:
I’m interested in what others use, feel free to post comments…:)
