10 lesser known Firefox about:config parameters

A lot of users are still working with Internet Explorer 6 either because their company did not make the switch to Internet Explorer 7 yet or because they don't know that a new version is already out.

Use Custom Cursors in Windows

The default cursor set that ships with Windows is not really friendly to the eye and it happens from time to time that I have to search for the cursor on the screen because it blends in nicely if the page has a similar background color.
