Five pieces to this puzzle.
- Xmonad window manager, granting tiling and razor-thin-edge window borders
- Firefox 3.5.3
- Compact Menu 2 plugin, to merge those menus into one icon.
- Personal Menu plugin, to allow rearranging search bar, controls, etc into one line, create a custom menu, and choose which controls will be available.
- Classic Compact theme, which frankly looks better than the default GTK+ theme
Which adds up to:
Doesn’t help the memory consumption any, as you can see on the right, but at least you have more screen real-estate to see the important stuff. 😉
P.S.: This is REALLY handy for netbooks!! Not only do you get a tiling window manager — meaning that you don’t have to constantly resize and reposition windows — but you can switch from tiling to full-screen mode with a single key-combo.
