I was bored and I wanted to code something real quick so I made a Firefox addon that would change the background of the www.mantatutorials.com (http://www.mantatutorials.com) webpage to whatever you like. ;) It's not ready to be distributed as as for now the background is hardcoded. But if someone find this usefull I might finish it and share it with you.

So here's how it looks like:

It could probably also change the colors but then it gets complicated.

Cool. There's been quite a number of people asking to customize the background to their liking and this will totally be up their alley.

I think it's good for sharing now.
The plugin is located at this link:
http://download.game2make.com/temp/mtbackchange/mtreplacebackground.xpi
When you press it Firefox will complain that my site is not trusted and then that I'm not a trusted author or whatever. I don't have time to register at Mozilla and no money for a certificate for my domain so use at your own risk.

After installing the extension and restarting your browser you should see a new menu option under tools:
http://download.game2make.com/temp/mtbackchange/scr01.png

This is where you set your preferences. The plug-in is disabled by default so you have to enable it. Here is an example of a typical configuration:

My idea was to use "file://" as URL so you could use a local image but I was unable to make it work, so your image should be uploaded somewhere on the net.

I might look into that when I have some free time.

Hey, how is Chrome, John. I've never really checked it out.
