Stratini – Back in Black (and in Firefox)!

The Stratini theme is not a new theme to Firefox Facts readers, as I have already sung it’s praises once before. But now, the developer has released a darker version of the same theme – and I do have to say – it looks very sleek.

Here is a little more about the theme from the developer:

Black Stratini is my Stratini theme with a dose of the darkness. All highlights are in dark blue, as blue is the most common highlight color for Windows and Mac color schemes. Black Stratini uses Stratini Padded icons and spacing in Large Icons mode and Stratini icons in Small Icons and Teeny modes. This gives Black Stratini the unique ability to have three very different sizes in one package.

You can pick up and use Black Stratini from the Firefox Add-ons web site.  Which do you like more, the light background or the black background, for this awesome browsing skin?

Cover Firefox in Black Steel

Want to coat your favorite browser in Black Steel? The Black Steel theme for Firefox might not exactly be my cup of tea, however it does have a simplistic dark appeal that I am sure many will love.  If your searching for a black theme, it is one of the best looking ones of the bunch too.

The entire theme is very sleek and polished feeling.  One feature that it provides that many other dark themes are lacking is that it is still easy to read the menus and other text inside the browser too, without having to slowly inch your face towards your monitor. 

You can pick up the Black Steel theme over on the Firefox Add-ons site.

Neon Themes for Firefox Fans

Bright bold themes, with a dark undertone are hard to find.  In most cases, you have a dark theme that is all dark, or a light them that is all bright, but never to the two seem to mix that often.  Here we have three themes that do a great job at the dark (yet bright) look and feel.

Bloody Red for Firefox

Now, nobody can deny that all three of these themes are unique in their own way.  If you are looking for a set of themes that are different from the rest, you have stumbled upon the right review.  Personally I am not a big fan of the Las Vegas neon light look and feel – but hey, who am I to judge. 

Midnight iPox is a Mashup of Twisterness

I have always been a big fan of TwisterMC’s work on Firefox themes, and apparently so are a lot of you.  One reader on TwisterMC’s blog even went as far as combining two of his themes (MidnightFox and iPox Aqua) to make this beauty, Midnight iPox.

You can pick the theme up at TwisterMC’s web site.  Just download it from there, then open Firefox, go to Tools > Add-ons and drag Midnight-iPox.jar into the left side of the Themes section.  Once it has been installed, restart Firefox to be able to use it.  Always love to see the openness and creativity of the Mozilla fan base – and this is a perfect example of that at its best.

Firefox Coming Apart at the Seams Wallpaper

I’ve gone over how difficult it is to find Firefox-themed wallpaper that is really worth my time.  With that said, I have hit another lucky jackpot with this great widescreen selection. Here you have it:

The full size of the wallpaper is 1920×1200, so should be more than big enough to be resized to fit your own desktop needs.  Want more? Check out:  http://www.firefoxfacts.com/tag/wallpaper/

Pour a Black Glaze on Firefox

If you are in search for a new dark theme to replace your Christmas themed one you got last week, have no fear – I have a good one for you.  Glaze Black is a simple and flat theme for Firefox.  Oh, did I mention it is black too?  You can oooooh and awww at the screenshot below:

Glaze Black theme for Firefox

As you can see, it has a very simple look and feel to it (which is something I like to look for in a theme, personally).  You can pick it up on the Firefox Add-ons web site and be sure to stop by and see the creator of the theme at theme-oasis.org.

As a ‘bit of an extra tip – you can pick up a white version of this same theme here.

LumiNight Theme for Firefox

While browsing through some of the experimental themes, I happened to run across another one of the best dark themes I have seen in a while.  LumiNight has a very eye appealing look and feeling to it, as you can see here bellow.

LumiNight Theme for Firefox

Here is a little more from the developer:

The goal of LumiNight is to be modern & dark, with icons that can be understood easily at a glance. I went into it trying to avoid gloss-overkill and shiny orbs. This theme tries to be as straight-forward as possible, while appealing to those that like a darker theme.

This theme is brought to us by the same great designer who brought us the MushroomKingdom theme from a few weeks ago.  Personally, I hope they keep up the great work!  You can pick it up on the Firefox Add-ons site.  Now the only question I have though is when will we see LumiDay?

The Secret of a Good Dark Theme for Firefox

heavencube I have said before, there are not many dark Firefox themes that I like that much.  Maybe I’m just too happy to enjoy the lights being turned out in the browser.  Heaven.Cube, a new theme for Firefox 3, might change my mind.  It has style.  It has darkness.  Best of all, (here is the secret!) it is very unique.

After using it for a while, you’ll get the feeling that your browser is almost glowing.  All the icons are shinny and bright.  Putting that against the dark background really makes them look good.  As far as what I’d like to see in the future, I could see all kinds of various colors being released (personally, I’d like to see a dark green and black one).
