You may have already customized your Google Chrome browser by downloading free themes from the web. The official Chrome themes page also features hundreds of beautiful themes for the browser. But wouldn’t it be nice if you were able to create your own custom Chrome theme without using any software?
A little over a year ago, we shared a free utility named Chrome Theme Creator to create themes for Google Chrome browser. And today, we are here to share an online service (free) that lets you create themes for Chrome browser with a few mouse clicks, without having to install any software on your PC.
ChromeTheme Creator is a free online tool that lets you create Chrome themes in a jiffy. The tool provides a simple way to change images, color and tints, and then helps you pack and install the theme on your Chrome browser. The tool also allows you download the your new theme so that you can share it with your family and friends.
With this tool, you can change theme frame, theme tab background, theme button background, theme window control background, theme frame overlay, background color, text color, link color, bookmark text color, new tab background image, and header color of the theme.
How to use ChromeTheme to create a new Chrome theme:
Step 1: Open ChromeTheme Creator page in your Chrome browser. You will see Start, Images, Colors, Tints and Pack tabs on the left of the page and theme preview on the right side of the page.
Step 2: Click on Start tab, enter a name for your theme and also type description.
Step 3: Switch to Images tab and click on the given elements to browse and upload images. If you are having trouble figuring out what each element is, simply hover the mouse cursor over an option to view purpose of the image and where exactly the image will be used in the theme.
For example, upload your favourite picture to the theme_ntp_background element to add your picture as New Tab page background.
Step 4: Once done, move to Colors tab and select color for all 14 elements. Click on the RGB value of the color to select a new color.
Step 5: Use the elements under the Tints tab to add tints to buttons, frame and background tab.
Step 6: Finally, move to the Pack tab to create your first Chrome theme. Options are available to pack and install theme, pack and download theme, or pack and download zip file. Use the pack and install theme option to immediately download and apply the new theme.
The service also offers a simple way to upload and edit your current theme (found under Pack tab). In addition to creating and editing the theme, you can also download hundreds of themes from the site. Overall, a fantastic service to personalize your Chrome browser appearance.
