Just like Whitehart, here is another simple theme that anybody could use. Personally I don’t like for the browser to get in the way of the content – so with a theme like that, you have nothing to worry about. It is simple and to the point, and does not distract you with a bunch of wacky colors and flashing lights.

When you want a simple, small and to the point Firefox theme – you want Whitehart. Now from the name it reminds me of some brave knight that would go slay a dragon or two. Well, I guess you could think of this theme as a knight slaying the big bad Internet if you wish. The simple – yet elegant appearance makes this theme perfect for any minimalist out there.
Out of all the “macfox” themes, the Macfox II Graphite theme might be my favorite. It does not hit you over the head with an apple. It instead is a little more sneaky when it comes to changing the way your browser looks. The only thing I do not like about these Apple clone themes is that they get rid of the favicons. Now I rely on having my favicons in place, so I can’t use this theme. Maybe you can though!
Now I know I have seen these icons somewhere before – where was it? Oh yeah, it was that ugly monster that Microsoft called Internet Explorer 6. Now maybe you have a friend that was really in love with the IE6 interface. What are you to do when you want them to use Firefox instead? Give them the Looks Familiar theme because, well… it looks familiar to them!
Not all themes are created equal. One guy that makes his themes a little different than all the rest is TwisterMc. I don’t know how he does it, but it seems like every time he produces a new theme it looks better than the last. If you are a fan of dark (and I mean really dark) themes, MidnightFox is the Firefox theme for you. It really sets itself apart from the pack.
The Cylence Theme might look a little familer to you. It is the new default Firefox 2 theme, but with a darker edge to it. Personally, I have not found that many good looking themes when it comes to Firefox 2 – so finding a different “flavor” of the default is a nice thing to see. It delivers you all the form and functionality of the default theme – and has a metallic look to it.
When it comes to Firefox themes, the Qute theme is one of my favorites. Now it looks like somebody has taken this original design and smacked it with some blue here and there. Instead of the multi-colored interface, now everything has a blue tint to it. It is still simple and nice – it is just feeling a little blue now.
Come on, tis the season man! You know you have been searching far and wide for a holiday related Firefox theme. You might be a little embarrassed about it, but have no fear. There is nothing wrong with getting in the holiday spirit.
Tinseltown is a Christmas theme with holiday imagery including Christmas lights, snow, reindeer, presents and more. This theme is made eve better with great Christmas icons from Watiworks and a semi-transparent URL bar. Get in the holiday spirit with Tinseltown.
Winning my personal award for the best looking holiday Firefox theme is Tinseltown.
The folks over at Download.com have posted a pretty nice round up of the best themes out there for Firefox. Did they miss your favorite? Let me know!
Our first Firefox theme gallery offered new ways for surfing the Web with Firefox 1.5, but not all of those themes came along with the recent upgrade to Firefox 2. We’ve dug deep to find the best and the brightest themes for the new version of the open-source browser. A few are repeat performers, while others are fresh looks for enhancing your daily Web surfing. If you don’t have Firefox, download it now.
Here is another theme ready for Firefox 2! Planet Mir looks more like the traditional Firefox 1.5 theme, but it has a few new quirks and styles that makes it fit in perfectly with the new Firefox 2 features. If the goal of the theme was to go for a cleaner, crisper looking theme than the default theme for Firefox – I think they did it.
Update! Looks like I goofed, because Planet Mir isn’t exactly ready for Firefox 2 just yet. Hopefully it will be soon though, because it is a great minimalistic theme!
