· Bugfix: default theme on Linux showed all 4 contrast close buttons on the tabs
· Added a setting to disable the contrast tab close button feature (about:config only extensions.fabtab.contrastclosebutton)
April 17th, 2012
· Added a contrast switching tab close button, color triggers based on the same rules as the black/white tab text color
· Removed a bit of css which was causing a slight increase in height of the tabs, this might "break" compatibility with some theme once again but I have to focus on a default Firefox
· Added a separate setting for active tab saturation (about:config only extensions.fabtab.activetabsaturation)
· Added a setting to not make the active tab text bold (about:config only extensions.fabtab.activetabbold)

· Tested on Firefox 6

· Minor tweaks in active/inactive tab coloring and transparency
· Als apply the contrasting text color to all toolbars below the tabs (if toolbar coloring option is on of course)
March 7th, 2011
· Inactive tabs now have a softer color so the active tab is more exposed
· Added ru, sr and sv-SE translations
· Cleaned up and rewritten partially to support Firefox 4. This version no longer supports Firefox versions older than 4 because too much had to be changed

· I hope you all like the idea, please don't hesitate to contact me if you think the algorithm needs more tweaking on certain types of websites.
· I have also added a small settings window so you can play around with the different variables that determine the outcome a bit. I do personally think that these settings are optimized as they are right now, but perhaps I am simply most often visiting 1 type of websites.
· A short explanation of the various settings.
· Color matching strength, this basically allows you to "group" similar colors. Best explained I think with the example of a website that has a gradient (for example an image that runs from red to orange) banner and a lot of white space. With the color matching strength set to 0 each red/orange pixel would be counted individually, and the large white space would "win" because the most pixels are white. If you set the color matching strength to a higher value orange/red rgb values that are similar will be counted as one, giving the most prominent shade of red/orange a better chance to "win".
· Prevent light/dark colors strength, up to which white/black rgb color values do you want FabTabs to allow to process. I added these settings because most websites will always consist of full black (text)/full white (background) colors, which might not be preferred to be used when calculating the most prominent color. Settting them to a higher value will skip more and more black/white colors, setting them to 0 will count all colors.
