I think the dark days of Firefox theme development are over. Over the past few weeks I have been able to find some really amazing Firefox themes that are well worth checking out. At the top of that list is BFT Evo. The BFT Evo theme is really slick and smooth.

Who bleached my Firefox? If you are going for a minimal and clean interface, you can do no better than the Simple White theme for Firefox. This extremely all white theme of Firefox might sound a like a ‘bit of an oddity at first – but once you use it for a while, you will really appreciate the simplicity of it all.
The world of Firefox 3.6 themes is really slim pickings these days. Well, there still are a lot of great themes, however most of them I have already covered here more than a few times. However, I am happy to say I was surprised to find this suggestion in my inbox this morning. Bloomind FT Graphite really transforms the way Firefox looks for Windows users.
Sometimes, finding a good Firefox theme is hard to do. Thankfully though there are still themes out there like Qute that look great, are lightweight and don’t kick you in the face with a stylistic nightmare of clashing colors.
The new Foxtail theme really looks amazing. Its modern look and feel that it brings to your browsing is second to none. Now you can grab it to use on your own Firefox installation.
Very clean and easy on the eyes, two things you can say about the ArzoFox theme for Firefox. I like themes that can make the browser experience better just by touching up a few things. The gradient background, mixed with the colorful icons is a great combination that is really hard to beat.
Like what you see? You can pick up the ArzoFox theme on the Firefox Add-ons web site.
I have really liked using some of the former Google Chrome-like themes for Firefox, so coming across Chromifox Extreme 3, I just had to give it a shot. If you were one that was tempted to give Chrome a shot, but didn’t want to leave Firefox behind, this theme is for you.
As you can see, the idea here is to make it look as much like Google’s browser as possible. You have tabs on top, you have those happy go lucky chrome icons, what else could a Google loving web citizen want? I also highly suggest you pick up the Chromifox Companion add-on for Firefox if you want to be able to customize the interface and get that real Chrome look and feel.
By far, Chromifox Extreme 3 has to win praise for being one of the best browser interface translations from one browser to another, don’t you think?
I can’t get it out of my head that this modern and compact theme sounds like a great magician. I want to call it the Amazing Stratini! What is its first trick? To turn your Firefox installation into a better looking browser. Actually, there are now two different flavors of the Stratini theme, one is the original (which is more compact) and the other is more padded and spaced out.
Here is a little more about the themes in question from the developer:
What basically started as a small project to simplify and shrink the default Strata Theme has turned into a distinct theme. The icons are designed around the simplified Stop, Reload, Back and Forward icons of Strata… expanding those basic elements across the entire interface.
You can now download either or both! Be sure to let me know which one you decided to use and why.
I really enjoy the themes that can keep it simple, yet give me something new and fresh to look at that doesn’t look like it was ripped from the theme down the street. Both Stratini and Stratini Padded pass those test, so they get two enthusiastic thumbs up from this Firefox fan.
So you enjoy that good ol’ theme from Firefox versions past, with a touch up here and there?
You need to pick up Winstripe Modern then. I don’t know what it is, but something just feels right about this theme. It works for me on a visual sense, and is still one of my top ten favorite themes. You might check the previews to get a closer look at the interface – but you know it, you love it – so why don’t you have it?
Need a new Firefox theme? The Modern Pinball theme is one that I really like because it does not try to distract me too much. Some themes are so active it is hard to focus on the Web site I am looking at. Modern Pinball keeps things pretty without demanding my attention.
The Modern Pinball theme is designed to please the eye without being distracting, and to be usable without wasting screen real estate. It provides a consistent modern look across operating systems, including MacOS, Linux and Windows.
