Fire Fox Hockey

imageThe other day the Canucks Fanzone introduced a Canucks branded upgrade for Fire Fox browsers.

Essentially it turns the navigation area into a control panel for the Canucks website (i.e. quick access to stats, schedules, the message boards, etc) plus it also cycles the headlines of the latest feature stories from the team onto your browser. There’s also a “light” option once you get it installed, which still has the useful features but reduces the Canucks branding if you prefer.

Here’s a screenshot for anyone that’s interested.

I was a bit sceptical because I haven’t had a lot of luck messing with FF skins, but after using it a few days I’m pretty happy with it. It hasn’t caused me any problems and I’m actually finding the features pretty useful. You can download it here.

Fans of other teams can find similar browser addons for Fire Fox (also designed by Brand Thunder which did the Canucks one) at Mozilla. They have browsers for the Washington Capitals, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Calgary Flames, the Montreal Canadiens and the St. Louis Blues.

P.S. Unfortunately, the Mozilla page seems to be having access issues today, so you may have to check back later.
