Google Chrome

Themes, like extensions, have only been added recently to the Google Chrome web browser. The Google Chrome theme engine on the other hand offers an advantage over other web browsers as it does not require a restart after applying a new theme to the web browser. Designers and theme developers have been busy since to create compelling themes for the Google browser. Google itself has created a Google Chrome Themes website where they post their and third party themes for the Google Chrome browser.

The following list is a selection of ten great Google Chrome themes that can be used to change the look of the web browser.

5. Splendid

Moise Emquies was a law school graduate waiting for the results of his California bar exam when his friend invited him to pass the time by designing a t-shirt for her clothing store. He threw himself into the project, quickly educating himself on textiles in search of the perfect rayon t-shirt on which to put his design. Splendid is the culmination of Emquies' tireless search to find the softest fabric and most color absorbing yarns in the world in order to create the ultimate t-shirt. After an exhaustive ten year search, he finally discovered the right combination: 50% supima cotton (a luxurious cotton that gives the fabric body) and 50% micro modal (a form of rayon that is super soft and deeply absorbs dyes). It was then that Emquies finally decided on a name for his new t-shirt collection: Splendid.


6. Dolce&Gabbana

    Those are nice themes but I’m still having trouble breaking away from Firefox to use Google Chrome. Tried it for a while and ended up going back so we will see if I find my way back to Chrome eventually.

    I’m personally using the Hatsune Miku that’s part of the official Google Chrome theme list.

    It’s quite good.

    Does anyone know why you can’t theme a chrome app window.

    chrome app = when you make a specific shortcut in chrome for lets say google reader or google wave.

    No matter what I do I can not get the theme to carry over on to the chrome app.

    Any suggestions?

    Just as a point, Firefox’s Personas do not require a restart when applying them. You can even do realtime previews just by hovering over the themes available.

      “Just as a point, Firefox’s Personas do not require a restart when applying them. You can even do realtime previews just by hovering over the themes available.”

      Firefox’s Personas are not exactly themes, it’s basically just two pictures plus two colors and nothing more. Yes it doesn’t require a restart, but splattering two random pictures onto the browser UI and then change the accent and text colors doesn’t count as a theme anyway. The real Firefox themes from the Add-ons do require restart.

      On the other hand, both IE and Safari don’t support themes (they don’t have their own theme engines), while Opera supports changing full blown themes without a restart since… all the time. And all those IE shells like Maxthon, Avant, etc. etc. also support changing themes with no need to restart., so actually Firefox is the ONLY browser that currently requires a restart to change themes, other browsers either don’t have their own theme engine, or can change themes without a restart.

        If you look from that side, chrome themes are not themes either. Just like personas it only changes some images and color. They dont change the design or icons etc.

        From what I see, firefox requires a restart when adding a new theme because the theme engine is the same as add-ons engine and probably to prevent problems, all add-ons require a restart after you add it.
