Personas are easy-to-use themes that let you personalize the look of your Firefox
Firefox 3.6 has introduced a new feature (that was in Beta for some time): Personas.
What’s a Persona? From Firefox’ own description: Personas are easy-to-use themes that let you personalize the look of your Firefox There’s a very nicely done video on the Firefox Personas site to introduce the feature.
If you (or your friendly sysadmin) haven’t upgraded to Firefox 3.6 yet, you can still install the Personas Plus Add-On to enjoy all of the Personas goodness.
Very easy to use indeed: Roll your mouse over a Persona image and see immediately how it looks on your browser. Click on “install” and make it permanent. Theming made super-easy!
Of course, I started searching for an OpenSolaris Persona as soon as I found out about this feature. There wasn’t any. Yet.
Creating your own Firefox Persona is really easy, so I got my hands dirty with Gimp on my OpenSolaris work machine, perused some of the supplied OpenSolaris GNOME desktop backgrounds, and…
So, if you’re a fan of OpenSolaris, why not dress up your Firefox web browser and wear the OpenSolaris persona?
If you’re involved in any official OpenSolaris marketing: Let me know when there’s an officially approved OpenSolaris Firefox Persona, and I’ll be happy to point people at it.
