As reported by Chu Yeow, the Mozilla Update site has finally been updated, now matching the look and feel of most of the rest of Mozilla.org.

At the time of writing, my port of the GrayModern theme for Firefox is ranked 20th in the list of most popular Firefox themes. Not too long ago, remember, it was listed as the most popular theme, so we'll have to see what happens as time progresses and the download counters get busy. It's just too bad they didn't get the new site set up for the 1.0 release, since I imagine a good chunk of the millions of users that downloaded that version have already gone out and grabbed their favorite themes.

I'm dying for the 0.7 release, please hurry up.

I also have a confession to make during the holidays:
Due to the bugs in mozilla update(fixed?), you could rate the theme several times, and thats what I did(few hundred times!). Because it was top rated, more people noticed it and so it was #2 on the popular list.
Now don't get me wrong, there are hundreds of themes available, and people would only try few of em. I only did this because I taught graymodern deserved recognition.

I'm not such a fanboy as I used to be, I switched to Charamel but the author wants the theme to be "discovered" so its not on mozilla update.

Nonetheless I'm still anxious for 0.7.

Yours truely,

A Real Loner

Before switching to FF I'd been usind Netscape, and later Mozilla. I was looking for a theme making FF look similar to the above browsers.

GrayModern theme is my favorite.

Good luck with your work.
