Make Your Own Themes ...
When I started out making themes I used themebeta.com a lot, but if you truly want to create a theme that is personal to you and specific to your computer; You will need to either get one in the theme store, make it yourself or just ask me or someone else to create one for you. There are also lots of other people on the internet that will help you out too. You can go to my contact page if you want to know how to reach me the quickest.
Some time ago it was kind of hard to figure out how to make your own themes if you had no idea how to work with .json files. A JSON file is a manifest file, that is basically a simple text document containing all the info you will need to get your new theme recognized by your Chrome browser. I go into a lot more detail about that in some other articles that I have written. This simple little text file can seem very intimidating to anyone that sees it for the first time and has no idea about it.
Sites like Themes beta offers you a full online theme maker for free, but the nice thing about the site is that you have the option to download the already compiled manifest file that you will need. So,I do recommend going there if you want to check it out and you have no idea what I am talking about right now.
My friends Rublux O and Face Booce made their own custom themes and it's really interesting to see how creative some people can get with it. You get so many different colorful Google themes, yet playing around with different backgrounds, or photos you have and adding your own unique style to the toolbar and tabs can really make your theme look super special.
I made a Call of Duty theme a few years ago dedicated to the Black Ops games, I think it was called it COD: Black Ops or something ... Anyway over 350K theme enthusiasts downloaded and used it every week, and it got some great reviews. Simply because the toolbar and tabs were just amazing and really brought the theme to life in a unique way, that matched the feel of the game quite well... Anyway, my theme was removed from the store a while back, copyright and all that, but I clearly mentioned that it was a fan-created theme, I took no credit for the artwork, that I did customize by the way ... Ok, so a bit off topic here, but anyway ...
If you have a look at one of my Batman themes or even a few of my Unicorn themes, for example, you will see what I mean, by saying you can really make a huge difference to your theme by experimenting with different toolbars and tabs for it.
My most colorful theme and probably the best example of this is the Rainbow Color Tabs theme that is basically your standard default theme for Google, but it has a rainbow-colored toolbar with matching tabs ... just to show you that you can do more with your toolbar than you might think at first.
Custom Google Chrome themes like the top ones you see in the Chrome store can sometimes look very simple, but they take some time to create and just get perfect. Out of 10 themes that I make, I probably will only upload only one or two for everyone to download ...
The rest of the time is spent optimizing themes and making sure they are appropriate for most people to use on their computers.
If you need a good theme for Chrome there are many different sites you can go to like I mentioned before.
I hope you take a few minutes to see what I have added that is new in the Web store and maybe you find something you like without needing to go anywhere else. I know I change my theme probably like a thousand times a week ... I have my favorites, so ... Thanks for visiting here, I really appreciate it.
