The Colorful Themes of Avant.Garde

I have no clue what avant.garde stands for,  but I do have to say – no matter what you call it, this theme is colorful and unique.

avant.garde Theme for Firefox

I think that the theme creator describes the inspiration for this theme much better than I could do.   So I made a theme based on the humble spiral, and I wanted it to be colorful and fun, but also inherently functional and practical. There are certainly colorful and fun themes out there, and there are definitely practical themes out there, but never both. Why? Or more to the point, why not? As one more surprise to toss in there – there are several flavors of this theme to choose too.

Verde (Green Version) Mandarino (Orange) Lilla (Purple) Blu (Blue) Argento (White) Rosa (Pink) Nero (Black) Classic (as seen above)

Click on the thumbnail above to check out that theme’s page on the Firefox Add-ons site.  They are experimental themes, so you may have to login to Firefox’s site before you can download.  I am looking forwad to seeing more themes by this interesting designer.  Also, interested in hearing what you think about them too.

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.

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?

Another Mario Firefox Theme

Looks like somebody else has tried to put up a fresh new theme inspired by the local population of the Mushroom Kingdom.  You have Mario, Luigi and the rest of the gang here.  I have to say this is a beautiful piece of work.  Makes me so happy I could go bust brick with my head until I find a surprise. 

There is a lot to love about this new Mario theme for Firefox.  For example:

This is not the first Mario inspired Firefox theme, there have been several others:

So you had better grab the MushroomKingdom theme before it gets taken down due to trademark concerns and Nintendo’s lawyers.  You can download the MushroomKingdom theme (while you can) via the Firefox Add-ons web site.  To check out more of the author’s Firefox theme work, check out his own site at savaden’s designs.

Camifox Theme for Firefox Rocks!

As soon as I say I like this theme, somebody is going to pop out of the wood work and say how awful my choice in themes really is.  To keep those people at bay I will only say… oh forget them.  Camifox is a unique new look for Firefox, yet doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel.

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

Firefox 3, in living color. Camifox replaces Firefox’s monolithic toolbar buttons on Mac OS X (and the icons on Windows and Linux) with the bright, colorful icons from the Mozilla Camino browser, and it also makes the tab bar easier to read with higher contrast.

How does it look?  Camifox, if I dare to say is a great looking theme in my opinion.  Here is how it looks on Mac, Vista, XP and Linux:

You can pick Camifox up for yourself on the Firefox Add-ons web site.  How do you feel about it, love it or hate it? (Having Problems?  Try the Alternative Download Link!)

Hitting the Playground Theme

I miss the playground.  Getting to take a break from school, head outside and play various games that have probably sense been outlawed because one child tagging another is now seen as something "gang" related. 

playground-theme-firefox-3

This Playground theme is a perfect fit if your seeking a Firefox 3 theme that looks a little more playful in nature.  It is also very colorful and just fun to look at as well.  Kind of reminds me of the Scribblies line of themes for Firefox too.

You can pick it up on Mozilla’s add-on web site and give your own Firefox 3 install a more childish look.

Phoenity Reborn for Firefox 3

Every day it seems as if we are getting more theme jewels back for Firefox 3 that we previously had on Firefox 2.  One of the most popular out there of all the Firefox themes would be the Phoenity series which is now back for Firefox 3 with Phoenity Reborn.

Phoenity Reborn for Firefox

As you can see – it does sport the new Firefox 3 keyhole backwards and forwards as well as some of your other favorite icons from the series.  Totally ready for all the new enhancements for Firefox 3 this is one theme you can’t miss out on if you are trying out RC1 (and up) of the browser.

You can download Phoenity Reborn from the Mozilla Add-ons web site.

MidnightFoxy – Dark Firefox Theme

I haven’t been one to give darker themes for Firefox much love, but MidnightFoxy might be the theme that brings me over to that “dark side” that so many seem to love.

Midnight Foxy

As you can see, it is another TwisterMc masterpiece that I am sure many of the Firefox Facts fans (say that 10 times fast) will enjoy. It is currently in the Mozilla sandbox, so if you don’t have a login there you can pick it up at TwisterMc.com.

14ZKidz Theme for Firefox

It seems like there are less and less Firefox themes being released these days. Has every good design been done? Well right about when you start to think that another one comes along to take over your browser’s look and feel.

14ZKidz

The oddly named 14ZKidz theme has a colorful (but not kick you in the face with glee) look to it. As you know by now, I like the simple ones – and this one delivers it as good as any of the other boys on the block do.

Baby Blue for Firefox 2

Want another cute and kind of girlie theme for Firefox? Well, from the creators of Pink Paula comes Baby Blue! Now unlike Pink Paula, Baby Blue is a theme I think I could see myself using.

It doesn’t make me feel like I should grow a set of boobs before I can use it. (Yeah, saying that is just asking for hate mail – I know!) It is nice, clean and cute. Everything I look for in a Firefox theme.

Vista Flavored Metal Lion

Now I haven’t been a huge fan of the Metal Lion themes in the past, but this “Vista” flavor is not half bad. I like it.

Metal Lion

As you can see it has a colorful yet clean look, and does give something a little different while not trying to be too different. Check it out, use it and let me know what you think.
