Is there any means I can use to set up custom appearancesa on browsers, recently I've found myself thinking I was in one browser (chrome or FF) while actually in the other and I would like to set something up so I can't possibly not know which browser I am in at the time. Obviosuly there are differences in the interface but they are not instantly apparent If one is too focused on the web page being viewed and doesn't think to look at the corners of the screen. Is there any means by which I could set it up so for example:


Internet explorer has a bright yellow and black striped warning appearance on parts which are usually grey, and text somewhere in the top bar sayng " YOU ARE CURRENTLY USING IE".

Chrome has a blue and green stripy appearance in the normally grey bits and a piece of text somewhere visible saying " YOU ARE CURRENTLY USING CHROME".

Firefox has it's boxes and bars grey and has a note in the top somewhere saying " YOU ARE CURRENTLY USING FIREFOX".

Any thoughts on setting this sort of thing up, or other means of making it VERY visually apparent which browser one is usign at any time.

Thanks

I remember in the old DOS days, we used to hack command.com and other such files and change the wording, or add wording.  I'm not sure if present day FF, GC, & IE have such user-hackable "faces."  Let's see if others can give us what we need.

Would rather NOT have to fiddle with command line interfaces, hoping there are ways which involve changing some settings or finding some image fles buried in the program files folder and editing them.
