Teeny Tiny Stratini Theme for Firefox

Today we have the Teeny-tiny Stratini-Stripe Point Nine theme for Firefox. Yes, go ahead and take a minute to say that out loud, I promise it is as fan as it looks.  This fantastic theme takes the classic winstripe look and feel and gives it the clean Stratini presentation.

Another Awesome Stratini Theme

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

The icons and style are mostly taken directly from Firefox 0.9 Winstripe and Pinstripe for Mac, both designed by Kevin Gerich and Stephen Horlander. This is my absolute favorite Firefox theme, and I am not planning on porting others into Stratini. The code is all based on Stratini so Stratini-Stripe 0.9 includes all of the Stratini features such as tiny Teeny Mode, miniature bookmarks, rotating Reload button, highlighted text input boxes, and encryption coloring in the urlbar.

This adds one more unique member to the Stratini family of themes, have you collected them all?

You can pick up the Stratini-Stripe Point Nine theme from the Firefox Add-ons web site.  Now you tell me, which Stratini theme is your favorite?

Go Green with Firefox

Ready for an eco-friendly browser?  While Firefox may or may not be carbon neutral, you can help promote the green lifestyle with this new Firefox theme, appropriately named Go Green.

Make Firefox Go Green

Made for green ecology enthusiasts, I have to give this theme for Firefox major props for trying to do something original, and also something with a message behind it.

The Go Green theme (which is just fun to say) is for Windows only, and can be downloaded from the Mozilla add-ons web site.

ArzoFox Theme for Firefox

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.

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?

Ambient Fox Theme Series for Firefox

Ambient Fox Xyan theme for Firefox

Sometimes you want a Firefox theme that looks just a little ‘bit different than the rest of the themes out there, and that is what the Ambient Fox series delivers to you.  Coming in three different flavors – Emerald, Maroon and Xyan, this is a unique theme that doesn’t stray too far away from the easy of use of the original Firefox skin.

Want more?  Here is where you can download each one:

A bright and refreshing theme series, be sure to give them all a shot, and let me know which flavor you like the best.

Chromifox Extreme 3

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.

Chromifox Extreme 3 in Action

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?

This Firefox Theme is SoCool!

Based on a custom theme that was originally made for the Maxthon browser, SoCool-Calx brings a colorful, yet simple design refresh for Firefox.

SoCool-Calx theme for Firefox

I am afraid there isn’t much more of  back story about it that I could find, because much of the conversation about it on the Web is all in like Chinese, so enjoy it for what it is – a great looking theme for Firefox.  I also found another theme by the same name, (SoCool) however couldn’t get it to install correctly after downloading it via Mozilla’s site. 

Go download the SoCool-Calx theme for Firefox, and let me know what you like (or dislike) about it.

10 Popular Themes That Are Firefox 3.5 Ready

One of the negative side effects of a new version of Firefox rolling out is the fact that some Firefox theme creators neglect to update their themes to the newest versions.  So, when updating our browser, that leaves some of us in the dark, when it comes to using the themes we know and love.  However, this time around many more popular themes have been updated to support Firefox 3.5 and here are my favorite ten for you to choose from.

Browsing in Two Dimensions

Two Dimensions theme for Firefox

If your looking for a mostly 2D, grayscale and compact theme for your Firefox browsing ways – look no further than the Two Dimensions theme.  As you can see with the screenshot I included, it is a very slick skin for your Firefox browsing ways that will not disappoint those of you who like to keep things simple. 

It would fit nicely, I think, in my list of lightest popular themes for Firefox.  Who knows, it might earn its spot soon enough.

Thus far a five-star theme, that is rising in the ranks, you can pick up Two Dimensions and add it to your own Firefox installation at the Firefox Add-ons web site.
