Sage gets hicksdesigned

When Jon Hicks of Hicksdesign puts together a new look for your feed reader, you take notes. Jon is the pixel master behind the Firefox and Thunderbird icons and an outspoken web standards guru. He writes:

..something that's attracted me back to using Firefox in the last few weeks has been the Sage RSS Reader extension. With a little tweaking to make it look more like an OSX'y, I now have what feels like my ideal Browser/RSS Reader combination.

Jon goes on to provide step-by-step instructions for Sage users looking to make their own visual mods. This is one of the benefits of working with the Mozilla platform.. End User Development. When the barriers to patching an application are unzip and notepad, everyone's a developer. We have a whole group of users poking, prodding, tweaking, and enhancing Sage for their own benefit. Not every mod has broad enough appeal to be incorporated back into the releases, but many do, and all offer insight into use habits.
