Google Chrome – Themes by Artists

Google Chrome – Themes by Artists

Google Chrome has new browser themes release called Themes by Artists, which includes popular names like Dolce & Gabbana, Mariah Carey, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta and many more.  My Google Chrome browser now sports the theme by Puk-Puk.

I really don’t know what they mean by “artists” because there are a lot of names there that I don’t recognize but that’s what they call it – Themes by Artists.

I can’t disregard my Firefox browser after all.  Chrome is great and I would want to label it my favorite browser but it’s just not yet mature.  Here’s a list of Google Chrome’s negatives, at least from my perspective:

New Browser Competitor: Google Chrome

New Browser Competitor: Google Chrome

There’s a new browser in town: Google Chrome. If you can judge a book by its cover, I like it already. I like chrome, silver, aluminum and similar looking objects.
