Firefox for Power Users – Change the Look [Part 3]

FirefoxPart three of our Firefox for Power Users series shows you how to change the look and feel of your favourite browser to really make it your own.

The simplest way to personalise your Firefox is to use Personas. Personas are easy-to-use themes that let you personalize the look of your Firefox without even having to restart. There are thousands of Personas to choose from, with more added every day. Visit the Personas gallery and start looking for designs that fit your style.

Themes offer even more radical changes to how Firefox looks. They not only change the background but the look and feel of all the buttons and menus too. Head over the the Themes gallery to take a look.

The Stylish addon goes beyond what has previously been possible, even with themes. It allows you to not only style Firefox but also any web page. Just like the Greasemonkey addon (which we’ll be covering in a future tutorial), Stylish uses “user scripts” or in this case “user styles” submitted to the Userstyles website.
User styles are basically themes for web sites. The Google search page a little too bright for you? No problem, make it black instead with a userscript.
