We are in such a hurry to grow up, and then we long for our lost childhood. We make ourselves ill earning money, and then spend all our money on getting well again. We think so much about the future that we neglect the present, and thus experience neither the present nor the future. We live as if we were never going to die, and die as if we had never lived. - Paulo Coelho
Read again the quote above.
Done? Great, this is the question. Are you enjoying your life?
“No, I’m not”. That’s my answer, we always live in an irregular condition. Sometimes we feel happy, sometimes we feel down. And that’s normal for regular people like us.
We are worrying future so much that we never experience what is happening in present. Look at yourself, you are always chasing the goal beyond your reach and neglect it once your reach it. As the result, you never enjoy your achievement.
Life is not a race, it is a journey. It doesn’t matter how fast you reach your goal. It is about how you spend your journey, with whom do you spend your journey and how content you feel about your journey.
So once for a while, put aside everything and experience present. Don’t think for tomorrow, but feel the present. Spend your time with you family and friends. Enjoy the nature. Take a good nap. Wander around the street. Because you live in present.

There are countless debate over which browser is the best. It is human nature to seek for the best, not to mention the best browser. If you’ve done some research, most of the people will vote for Firefox as the best browser. If you’re a new Mac user and prefer Firefox as your default browser but wish it looks more Safarish. Then keep reading on.
Customizing Firefox is easy to follow because of the simplicity of addons. The problem is you have to search and test many addons before you can achieve the result. So I’ll list most of the compatible addons here.Safari Theme for Firefox
There are many themes that suppose to be like Safari, but the best theme I can find is GrApple Yummy. There are many versions of it and you may take a look before deciding which one suits your taste. I recommend GrApple Yummy as the theme.Safari Style Address Bar
Do you see the progress displayed in the address bar? You can create that by using Fission addon. Later on you can configure the color of the bar, but most of time you don’t need to configure the color since it automatically use the default color matched to Safari style.Top Sites Feature
While I’m not the fans of the top sites feature, I think I need to include the alternative for Firefox user. If you like the top sites feature in Safari and wish there is one in Firefox. You can get it with Foxtab. I can’t say this is the best addon since it is quite complicated during the configuration.
View PDF inside Browser
Firefox doesn’t have the capability to view PDF inside browser. So we’re going to install some addons to make it work.Clean Up Your Toolbar
If you install some extra addons or Foxtab mentioned above, you’ll need to clean up some of the extra icons by going to view » toolbar » customize as seen below.
Then drag the icon you don’t want to appear to the where many icons listed. You can also do the same to add icon to toolbar.
If you encounter any problem (I hope not), feel free to leave comment or contact me.
