10 Most Popular Abstract Personas

Love them or hate them, Personas are here to stay, and I have to say the abstract category of Personas on Firefox’s web site are probably some of my favorites of them all.

Now I know I went on a ‘bit of a rant the other day about how some Personas just are not worth the time of day, however some really do fit in well with the Firefox browser too.  Here are 10 of the most popular abstract Personas I found usable and beautiful.

Bringing Purity Back to Firefox

Purity Theme for Firefox

This inspirational theme, created for the Firefox browser, is one of the most attractive themes I have seen in some time.  Designed with the idea in mind that simple/flat designs tend to be more appealing than overly decorated ones; Purity is ready to refresh your browsing experience.

The author of the theme notes that some of the theme is still a work in progress, as many of the dialog icons are from the stock Aero theme.  However I have high hopes for this unique browser skin.

You can download and install the Purity theme for Firefox (Windows only) at the Firefox Add-ons web site.

Skin Facebook to Look More Stylish

Since the recent Facebook re-design, there are not many themes or skins out there that work with it.  However, I have found one that is fully compatible and (for some) a much more pleasant viewing experience, the Vista Ultimate Skin for Facebook.

Vista Ultimate Skin for Facebook – Want to make Facebook look a ‘bit more Vista-like?  This user style will give Facebook the look and feel of Windows Vista.

Also, if you want just the Vista-like taskbar inside of Facebook, you can pick up this user style.

Facebook Vista Taskbar

For these two user styles to work, you have to have the Stylish extension for Firefox installed.  Once you do,  be sure to check out our entire archive of Stylish tweaks and tips.  Also, if there are any Firefox Facts fans on Facebook, be sure to look me up and add me as a friend.  Have any favorite user styles you like to use with Facebook to tweak the interface?

Curacau 3 Theme for Firefox

So what happened to Curacau one and two I bet you are asking. I wish I had the answers. The third of this unknown trilogy if pretty slick looking though. Slick if you like that blue wood feeling.

Curacau 3

It kind of makes me think of a house out by the lake. Why? I have no clue. I figured that would be a lot more interesting than the theme I found last week that made me want to cry. You see I only share with you the best of the best. Curacau 3 – welcome to that exclusive club.

Cylence Theme – Emerald Variation

Well, ask and somebody will be nice enough to make it for you. Isn’t that how the old saying goes?

Well, that might not be the words exactly but I am just so excited that there is finally an emerald variation of the Cylence theme series for Firefox. The author of the theme Julien Saurin was nice enough to send it my way before it got listed on Mozilla’s Web site as well.

I have been using it for a while, and I think it is the best one yet. Of course, I love green – so that might have something to do with it as well.
