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.

Hexxya! Theme for Firefox

1237374348As the author puts it, capturing the theme of the 80’s era spirit, Hexxya! for Firefox looks to be a really unique theme that is very easy on the eyes. 

I really enjoy the simple icons and the softer use of colors in this theme for Firefox.  It all just works together very well.

Here is more about the theme from the developer:

You might notice that random arrangements of icons will not work with this theme. You will need to play around in the Customize Toolbar settings to get the icons to fit together in a manner that works, or just follow the order used in the sample screen shots for the best results. The large version has more space between the icons and is more flexible to different arrangements.

If the style of this theme looks familiar, the author of the theme also brought Slickerfox into the world.  The two don’t look exactly the same, but if you like one – I am willing to bet you will like the other.

Pick up the Hexxya! theme on 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.

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?

Google Chrome Themes for Firefox

Want to dress Firefox up to look like Google Chrome? 

It is ok to look at other browser’s themes from time to time.  That doesn’t mean your a cheater, it just means you like looking at new things every once in a while.  Chromiefox is a coat of “chrome” for Firefox.  Available for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, this theme will bring you the look and feel of Chrome without having to switch browsers to get your fix.

Here are the other flavors of Chromiefox to check out, based on the OS you use:

Chromiefox for Windows Chromiefox for Linux Chromiefox for OSX

As a word of warning, the author of the theme does say there are some compatibility issues with some third party add-ons.  So that maybe something to keep in mind.

Rein Theme for Firefox Does Monochrome Right!

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.

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.
