One thing I do like about Google’s new browser, unveiled last week, is the refreshing sky bluish theme that I am sure helps feel it more responsive, and clean.
Obviously I am not the only one and after less than a week since its release, there are already not one but two ways to reproduce Chrome’s fresh look in Firefox 3.
Chromifox, is a Firefox theme created byÂ falconer, that brings the sky blue, reproduces the tabs aspect and rounded menus.
To go even further, try Chrome Package, a bundle by digdug, of a modified Chromitab and Overlays on the browser extension, that moves the tab bar above the main menu, Chrome style.
The resulting clone is pretty close to the original save the star button, the presence of the main menu, and the two configuration buttons.
There is one major drawback though: the tab bar is pretty much unusable. Scrolling with the mouse wheel over it has no effect, and you have to press the scroll buttons really slowly to produce any actual scroll.
This is a very early and quick theme and extension releases, so hopefully the developer will be able to solve these problems in the next few iterations.
Chromifox and Chrome Package are both available at Mozilla Add-ons but you will need an account to install them as they are labeled as experimental.
