The first paragraph of the foreward by Blake Ross to Hacking Firefox : More Than 150 Hacks, Mods, and Customizations by Mel Reyes reads:
If software is an art—and I think it is—then I must be the only artist in the world who advocates defacing his own work. But if ever there was a product designed for hacking, Firefox is it. Because Firefox is an open-source project, its lifeblood—its source code—is available to hackers the world over. And I do mean hackers. These guys ship software before they put on pants.
That kicked me. In a good way. BTW, ever tried asking the law enforcers on what they define a hacker as? 😉
