Personas for Firefox : Style Your Firefox

Are you tired of the plain theme of your Mozilla Firefox browser? Want to "dress" up you Mozilla Firefox browser? Haha, yes you can, with the new Personas for Firefox.

Personas for Firefox is an extension that adds lightweight theming to your browser. And all you need to do is look for the one that best suits your preferences.

Personas is a prototype that builds upon the ideas that:
- Themes today are too hard to find, install and use;
- Graphic designers should be able to style the browser without having to code;
- Browsers can be more than just desktop software, they can include online components;
- People just want their computer to be a little more fun and personal.

What's the difference between a Firefox theme and Personas for Firefox?
