Editors' Review

+

Firefox is one of the most popular Web browsers, but it's not always one of the most spacious, especially if you use a toolbar or keep a lot of icons in your customized Firefox bar. To grab a little screen space back, try the free Firefox theme Littlefox, which shrinks most of Firefox's menus to give you more room to browse. It saves a considerable amount of space, but a rough and retro style give it a bit of a dated appearance.

Once you install Littlefox and restart the browser, the space gain is immediately noticeable. It trims about a half an inch or more from the top of your browser, giving you more room to work. It also makes any toolbars on your browser smaller. Everything you need to access the toolbars you do use is still available -- just smaller. Unfortunately, Littlefox makes the top part of Firefox look very dated. Think 1998 Netscape. The juxtaposition of that aesthetic with the sleek look of modern Web sites is a bit distracting.

Although it's in dire need of a graphics refresh and additional methods for customizing the interface, Littlefox is still a great add-on for Firefox. If you already use Firefox as your main browser and you are greedy for more screen real estate, try Littlefox to reclaim every little pixel you can.

    "not all that its crack up to be"

    February 11, 2013   |   By databaseben

    Version: Littlefox 2.0.14

    Pros

    it was easy to install and remove, via the browser add-ons feature

    Cons

    i measured the space saving by placing 2 browser side by side. it was only 1/4 of an inch that little fox saved.

    the regular browsers can provide with more viewing screen by right clicking on the toolbar and hiding some of the features that would also increase viewing space on the regular browser.

    and of course, one can always maximize the viewing window to achieve lots of viewing space.

    Summary

    not really sure what little fox is supposed to do that the regular browser cant do already.

    "This sucks."

    February 11, 2013   |   By born_in_hell

    Version: Littlefox 2.0.14

    Pros

    Does manage to shrink space a bit.

    Cons

    Looks ugly and gruesome. The buttons and their styles take me to the somewhat "ancient" 90's Windows 98 OS appearance.

    Summary

    I would prefer Firefox's "Full Screen" option to this add-on if you really want to reduce the area consumed by menus. That way it looks much better.

    "Will not install."

    December 17, 2008   |   By Zane77

    Version: Littlefox 1.8.11

    Pros

    The only pro is it's free.

    Cons

    Programs under 1 MB will not install into programs. Littlefox is only 241.02 KB too small to install into programs so it can not be found and will not show up in add or remove programs.
