WARNING: If you do choose to actually use themes, Chrome might start crashing. You will then need to delete all extensions in the Chrome directory.
As I said in my previous post, I now have news on my blog. This is my first news post, so please cut me some slack. 😛
Google Chrome, as you know, is one of the newest (and in my opinion the best) web browsers on the market. It’s free, lightweight, and very fast. It has only existed for a short time, and is publicly at v2. Some may not know, but as well as the Public Channel (or the Stable Channel) for new Google Chrome builds, there are two others. They are: the Dev Channel, and the Beta Channel. Here’s just a short overview of the three:
Now, in one of the v3 Dev builds a new section appeared in the “Personal Stuff” section of the Chrome Options panel labeled “Themes.” It came with two buttons that didn’t do anything, called “Reset to default theme” and “Get themes.”
Well in Build 188.8.131.52 both buttons now do something. The “Reset to default theme” of course resets the theme on your browser. The “Get themes” button actually takes you to a nice screen with a list of downloadable themes (link).
All themes are in the .crx format. If you’d like to download the newest Dev build of Google Chrome, select below.
