    Seeing that the forum is slow lately, I figure we need more interactivity here. To start things off... why not show off your desktop?

    Nudity is not permitted :cool:

    You can use the attachment feature to upload, instead of using some website if you like.

    Hot time!

    I usually mix it up every month or so with some new abstract art from DevArt. I'm looking at maybe getting StylesXP. There are some awesome transitions you can make with it. ON WITH THE TOPIC!

    Yeah I was in the process of changing the pic to a PNG format instead as a JPG looked grainy.

    The wallpaper color kinda fits the visual theme so I just stuck with it. There are alot of wallpapers that have the "Vista" label on them. There are even visual themes to make XP look like vista.

    I prefer to have the desktop with as little icons as possible. What you see in the post is what it is with very little icons to cluttered things.

    I meant the fact of even remotely considering clicking on that dreaded icon!! Unless it's 7.0... then it's a tad better.

    I keep IE around for pages that just absolutely refuse to work with Firefox and I need to access them. Since I removed all other access to IE I had to put an icon on the desktop.

    In that rare occurrance, it would be pay off to just type 'iexplore' in the run line. But... I'm dirty like that. BTW... whenever you run into a site that doesn't work in FF... let me know. I haven't found one for a while.

    I find them on rare occasion but then again, I tend to hang around the seedier side of the internet.

    Oh, pron sites. I getcha. ;-)

    The only site I have ever found to not work in Firefox properly was Microbeta.net, but I think it's been since fixed. Not going to try now since I don't feel like Firefox crashing if it wasn't, heh.

    I recently got Style XP and like it A LOT. Here's my current theme/background.
    [​IMG]

    As for pages not working in FF, I found an extension that works perfectly. It's called <a href= "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419">IE Tab</a>. Just click the Firefox icon at the bottom right of the page and it'll automatically reopen the page in an IE tab. I keep the IE icon for the rare case I want to goto a website directly and it work.
