Last week Mozilla released Firefox 3.6, the latest and greatest version of their open source Web browser. To mark the occasion, we worked with designer Chad Pugh to create a couple of brand new WordPress Personas for Firefox. Personas are like skins for your browser, and these designs are a great way to show off your WordPress colors.
The “Vintage Press” Persona is inspired by the style of the great old-time printing presses. Get it here.
And the “Inkwell” Persona uses splashes of color to decorate a well-used piece of paper. Add it to your Firefox here.

Loved the “vintage press” so much :)… Downloading

I chose Inkwell. I like the use of grey, blue and green. The WordPress logo in this Persona reminds me of sealing a letter in wax The music score throughout is a very nice touch. With my love for music Inkwell adds another dimension to my thoughts and writing.
Chad Pugh is a very talented artist. Thank you for sharing this Persona today.

Vintage press nice!
*goes and changes theme*

Both are very attractive but I prefer the second one to the first. I’m not convinced as yet that my Firefox needs skinning but that’s no surprise. You see my first response to almost anything new tends to be … MEH … but a few weeks later I may even become a fan. My browser is “bloated” with add-ons and extensions, so I’m going to bookmark this entry for which I thank you, and after I do a browser purge I’ll be back.

I made one too!
Jan 25th at 11:45 pm
Jan 25th at 11:47 pm
LOVED it!! Thanx a lot!!
Jan 26th at 12:02 am
@Paul Kim i meant my Windows Machine RAM and speed indeed :-/
Jan 26th at 12:08 am
Simple but stylish, Love it!
Jan 26th at 12:37 am
These are truly beautiful. I may not be using Firefox 3.6 so I may not use it but it’s been a real pleasure to just ponder over it. Thanks a lot, you guys are great!

Me gustan los dos temas, pero solo eligiré uno
Jan 26th at 1:21 am
Great stuff. But like a few people here, I’ve since jumped the FF ship to Chrome. Would be great if you could get something on that format, too.
Jan 26th at 1:39 am
Inkwell, subliminally creative
Jan 26th at 1:40 am
Jan 26th at 2:04 am
cool! Love it!
Jan 26th at 2:07 am
Jan 26th at 2:12 am
Nice! i have both Firefox and Chrome on my PC. I’ll definitely try the second one out. I hope you also have personas for Chrome in the future.
Jan 26th at 2:14 am
Very interesting. For some reason Personas slowed my browsing down. Maybe with the newer version I will try again. I like the second one.
Jan 26th at 2:23 am
Wow, I am going to use them now!
Jan 26th at 2:55 am
they are good, WordPress artworks are always very professional, cool, unique and excellent
Jan 26th at 3:26 am
wow.. really cool.. thanks
Jan 26th at 3:29 am
This is very interesting, the advances of the WP and the tools you all offer simply amazing
Jan 26th at 3:45 am
love those personas, but won’t leave my Safari for a Firefox hunt.
Jan 26th at 3:52 am
I like it!
Jan 26th at 3:56 am
“Vintage Press” leaves all of my toolbar items very legible — the most often overlooked design feature of Personas. Killer work here.
Jan 26th at 4:00 am
Yeah, the bottom one is VERY cool! But why stop at two?
Jan 26th at 4:10 am
Jan 26th at 4:11 am
Nice for those who tend their browser skins regularly
Jan 26th at 4:22 am
I loved both the skins .. thanks. now i am confused which one 2 keep .:D
Jan 26th at 4:33 am
They are nice, but I think I’ll stay with my Pulp Fiction persona.
Jan 26th at 8:02 am
Like the vintage one.. will have to start using firefox as well!!
Jan 26th at 8:49 am
It’s very Nice to update yourself
Jan 26th at 8:49 am
So nice! So beautiful Even though I didn’t use Personas before, these themes are awesome!
Jan 26th at 10:13 am
Nice work.. Awesome!
Jan 26th at 10:31 am
So nice ^_^
Jan 26th at 12:00 pm
Be aware that the current version of Personas is attracting quite a bit of flack from users
My view of skins is that they’re pretty pointless, anyway (functionality first, prettiness a long way second).
Very nice work, guys, but thanks, I’ll pass.
Jan 26th at 12:08 pm
I’d like to see these skins for Chrome!
Jan 26th at 12:51 pm
That looks cool! I love a look like this!
Jan 26th at 12:53 pm
Great thought and idea to spread the WordPress love. Keep it going like this!
Jan 26th at 2:24 pm
Very cool. I love Firefox and WordPress. That’s a whole lot of love right there
Jan 26th at 3:54 pm
I like them both, but personally prefer ‘Inkwell’; it is more in line with who I am and what I am doing here.
Jan 26th at 4:14 pm
ohh! great! my firefox has a completely new wp addict look now
Jan 26th at 5:35 pm
I love those skins.
Sadly, none of my computers like Firefox any more. I can’t take the crashing.
Working with Opera now and loving it. How about something for Opera?
Jan 26th at 6:28 pm
I AM IN LOVE!!!
can’t decide!!! grrrrr
Jan 26th at 6:48 pm
amazing good idea
Jan 26th at 9:44 pm
I never used a Firefox theme before I read this article.
Jan 26th at 10:42 pm
I like number one…classic
Jan 26th at 11:03 pm
Jan 27th at 1:43 am
Good Job WordPress, like someone said in the earlier posts, you really are getting stronger.
Jan 27th at 2:35 am
I like both but I’ll probably end up trying the second one if FF would just stop crashing
Jan 27th at 3:53 am
Jan 27th at 4:20 am
Hey Paul! Firefox + WordPress = awesome^2
Great to see you around another great product! Cheers!
Jan 27th at 5:55 am
I’ll give it try. It’s great ‘collaboration’ between firefox and wordpress. I’m big fan both of them
Jan 27th at 6:38 am
Like previously mentioned by some of the comments above, would love to see a Chrome theme. I like the one I’m using a lot. https://tools.google.com/chrome/intl/en/themes/theme_at_hedgehoginthefog.html
Jan 27th at 6:43 am
I use Chrome, but those are pretty rad.
Jan 27th at 8:44 am
Excellent! I love WP :)) Keep up the good work guys~
Jan 27th at 11:50 am
wordpress is better with google chrome
Jan 27th at 12:07 pm
Wow. Both are nice.
Jan 27th at 12:34 pm
Cool. I’ll surely try it…
Jan 27th at 2:21 pm
Jan 27th at 4:20 pm
Oh wow those are awesome!
Jan 27th at 4:59 pm
This is very cool!
I love Firefox & WordPress too!
Jan 27th at 5:08 pm
Oh, these are nice! But I do use google chrome when I use wordpress.
Jan 27th at 8:17 pm
Nice? Oh, yessssssssssssssssssssss!
Jan 27th at 10:27 pm

Jan 28th at 1:45 pm
That’s a good idea,,,
I think it will make people excited about WordPress…
Jan 28th at 6:45 pm
How can we use it?
Jan 28th at 8:28 pm
Very nicely made.
Jan 28th at 9:35 pm
NICE AND WELL DONE DEAR
but i think the blog on wordpress needs many things such as clock, vote, weather…a box that shows friend’s blogs … mmm visitor counter shows visitors but who are they? in which country and short information about her/his country…that allows us to know many countries…
and Audio??? i can’t add it because it needs to be paid??mmm
sorry for my long comment
in anyway thnx alot dear

I have used Safari and WordPress to blog. I ran into trouble on a couple of counts. Updates to widgets did not show up and I had to redo them in IE. Some graphics did not show properly.
PS: When are you going to add a proper google enabled search engine.
Jan 31st at 7:08 pm
the second one is really nice!
