I have been a long time fan of the browser Firefox. One of the things that makes this browser the best is the thousands of great add-ons available to customize the browser to your personal needs and likes.
I often spend time looking up the newest and best add-ons and when doing so recently I came across “Personas”. Personas is a ” lightweight, easy-to-install and easy-to-change skins” add-on for the Firefox web browser. What is really cool is the ability for anybody to easily create their own skin. Using the Personas website, you are walked through each step of the process with detailed instructions. After being approved by the Personas team, your skin becomes live and available to use personally, or with your consent, for anyone to use under a creative commons license.
One of the coolest features of Personas is the ability to look through their gallery, hover over the skin and have it temporarily apply itself so that you can see how it will look. You know how it goes, you have to try it on to make sure it fits. It looks like the developers took that old adage and applied it well here. FYI…the Personas add-on must be installed for this feature to work.
Inspired by the first day of Autumn, I quickly got to work creating a fast but cute skin for myself. It really was very easy and I can see that in my free time I will get to creating a few more skins. You can see & use my skin by visiting the Personas website and searching under seasonal. I named it Autumn Breeze.
I also created a simple matching wallpaper. You can download it by clicking your resolution below. If you don’t see your size, let me know and I can create and upload it for you.
UPDATE: September 11, 2010
I’ve gotten many emails asking for this wallpaper without the words so here it is. 🙂
I also created an iGoogle theme in this design. I’m really excited about it. It’s really cute!
Enjoy & I hope autumn is showing it’s beautiful colors in your neighborhood.
