I have always been a huge fan of using the default Firefox theme because I think it is nice and simple. On several occasions I have actually gone out and scrounged around looking for a nice Firefox theme, but each time I have come up empty handed. I have installed many of the popular themes that Mozilla lists, but none of them seemed to fit what I like…not even the Noia which everyone seems to love.
Today I was going around DeviantArt just for the fun of it, and I came across a guy who has made several Firefox themes that all look pretty amazing in Firefox. There was this theme modeled after Windows Media Player 11 that really caught my attention:
There are a few things that I would like to say about the theme though. First off you’ll notice that I have two sets of tabs in the screenshot above. The top set is from the Tab Groups that I just mentioned yesterday. The extension appears to be missing the “New Group” button normally located to the left side, but the empty black space is actually the button…the theme obviously conflicts with the extension. I, however, like having just the small area to click instead of showing a big “New Group” button that takes up too much room.
The next thing that I would like to say about it is that there is a lot of black in this theme. Honestly, I never thought that I would be using a black theme, but there is something about this one that looks nice and helps my eyes to focus on the content contained on the site. I also love how bright the currently selected tab looks because I can quickly find it when I have 20 to 30 tabs open. If it is too much black for you then you should look at two other themes offered by the same person:
