I just posted a mini-tutorial on my blog that shows you how to make Firefox look more like a native Vista application.

Even though I think IE 7 is a big step-up from its predecessor, I still prefer Firefox for its versatility, even on Windows Vista. But the fact is, while IE 7 looks like a native Vista application, Firefox doesn't quite fit in. The default Winstripe theme was fine on XP, but I think it looks out of place with Vista's new Aero UI.

Fortunately, we can fix that pretty easily and have it looking like this in no time...

I'm surprised you like the removal of the menu bar, I never use it either, but it has been in every single program since the dawn of the GUI. Drives me nuts in Office 2007.

What's the point of having it there if you never use it? :)

I agree that it throws you off a bit at first, but I think it's a good change. Less elements on the screen to distract you, and more space on the screen for stuff that you're actually interested in.
