Hello, I have some files and apps I would like to start sharing, most of the things I plan on posting here will be Windows related however some of it will be for the DroidX. In addition, I would like to use this as an outlet for recommending/discussing various software. This post will constantly be updated with different stuff.

To start off, here is a custom version of FireFox I put together, it has all my favorite add-on's, optimized for speed and is crafted to look and feel like Google Chrome. This is for windows only. If you already have FireFox installed on your machine, you have to completely uninstall it first, which means all settings and preferences have to be removed during the uninstallation. You can download the add-on FEBE backup to save your bookmarks and settings first and then restore them afterwards. Hope you like it, please provide feedback.

WugFox.exe (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=625F9BJV)

More to come!

:)

I think you guys will like my FireFox build a lot, its jammed packed full of features but the overall design is very simple and looks alot like chrome. I was able to incorporate a lot of the features that are only in the firefox beta, like permanent tabs and such. I did so many things to it that it would be really hard to even begin listing all the features; you guys are just gonna have to play around with it. :)

Glad you guys like this idea, I plan on posting up a bunch of portable software next, that you can run with no installation from a flashdrive.

I also have a lot of knowledge on building a custom windows installation disc, so you can gut out the bloat and just get the goodness.

There's some portable software I can't post that I would really like to. Maybe I can just explain how I did it. Like how I built portable Office 2010 from the beta release. That was a free release anyway, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be ok for me to distribute it.

Regardless, stay tune for more updates. :)

Lol, good feeling huh

For sure :)

Let me know how like it.

I also spend a lot of time making all my software installations unattended. I'm working on a project to boil down reformatting computers to just two discs, ones a custom windows disc and the other one auto installs and configures all the software I recommend. I'm almost done with it.. but also something I can't distribute.. damn these laws..lol.

01-21-2011, 11:50 AM
Nice! Glad you like it. I will try and keep my head small lol. Some nice little features to check out;
Fourth button in from the upper right "links". When its enabled, any link you right click will open in a new tab in the background, or you can use shift click to get normal right click menu back.
On the bottom left you can make iconized bookmarks with the little star icon. I usually put spaces in between them or else it gets a little cramped, just right click the left side bar and choose customize.
I customized the menu button in the upper left, to streamline easy access to the most used features.
And a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting.

:) I'm glad I shared WugFox then. Lol. To make it even faster, go into addons, (the puzzle piece on the left bar) and click on fasterfox, options, and then go to pipeline, and enable pipelining and max it out to 8. Enjoy.

Feel free to share it with anyone. Make chrome users jealous. Lol.

Oh wait.. I lied. That's not how I did it.. one sec.

Ok. Click the puzzle piece and then click the themes button at themes button, you will see Chromifox basic, Chomifox extreme and Default. You can download any other theme you want.

I included Chromifox basic for users with xp, it just ran better. But for users with anything higher than xp, leave it on Chomifox extreme if you want the chrome look.

I am having an issue with the WugFox. Whenever I click on a link to open a PDF document in the browser, I get the error "FoxitReaderOCX.ocx failed to load." What could be causing this? And how do I fix it? I need to view to docs in the browser in order to be able to download them and save them to my comp. They are documents for an online class that I am taking.

Please help.

Until wug comes through and helps you, I suggest you use another browser to download your files. I know it may seem obvious but from your post it appeared as if you needed to download them now.

WugFresh
01-26-2011, 01:18 PM
Oh whoops, sorry. I can release a new version if you want. If you download and install the free program "Foxit Reader" then it will work. This was under the assumption that people use Foxit Reader for viewing PDF's (sorry for making assumptions), so I incorporated the add-on for it as the default PDF file handler. If you want I can release one that uses Adobe Reader, or maybe I should just remove all PDF pluggins and let the user decide. I should have foreseen this problem. Sorry.

Just so you all know these are all the pluggins I incorporated:
Media Player
Quicktime Alternative
Real Player Alternative
Foxit Reader
Office 2007/2010
Macromedia Authorware
Flash Player
Shockwave Player
Silverlight

Let me know what you would like me to do. :)

If you click the puzzle piece on the left bar, and then click the lego button, that will show you all your addons, you can then uninstall Foxit reader. And then you can install any plugin you want.

Or I can just release a new version with it removed, or with Adobe reader incorporated. You decide.

I also just realized I left the add-on in for digitalpersona which is for finger print scanners, if you don't have one then you can remove it.

Anything else you guys think I should remove or add. Any addons that you would like to see worked in?

I am currently re orginizing my laptop as i noticed i was only 50gigs away of filling my 500gb hard drive. so i bought a 1T external and dumped a bunch of stuff i dont use every day over too it.... but i saw a program on a forum that shows large files my having a screen with large and smaller boxes inside.... the bigger boxes being large hidden files.... i thought this would be awesome to do a quick search to make sure i have found everything.... but the program was only for like 98 to xp.. and i have 7

I just came across this thread earlier today while I was browsing. I downloaded your wugfox and have been using it for the past few hours. I am a recent convert to chrome but I'm falling in love with this browser. Thanks for making it available. I've noticed as I've read the forums these past few weeks that you are always generous with your time, patient with your explanations and very helpful with your computer skills. So thank you for everything I've learned as well as files that I have downloaded.

I would prefer the same mods as the original wugfox but a darker theme. I don't really like the bluish look of g chrome. But that's just me.

I found a dark skin add on that I've been using. It has the black Firefox logo on the right side. So that's always an option.
