Following the release of Fashion Your Firefox, the collection of add-ons to use and pimp out your browser, the Mozilla Foundation is further enhancing the user’s customization options by releasing Personas. As Mozilla puts it, Personas is nothing more than a collection of skins that you can use to modify the browser according to your tastes and needs. There is a large offering of artist-created designs that you can take advantage of; if that isn’t enough, you can always design your own skin and share it with the multitude of Firefox users out there.

“You can personalize your homepage, blog or instant messenger, but you leave your design behind when you visit another webpage or minimize your chat. The only way to personalize your entire online experience is through your browser. With Personas, your design stays with you at each and every point of your time online. And to give you lots of great content to choose from, we have opened the Personas gallery to independent designers from around the world, and also teamed up with popular brands, including Greenpeace, Cynthia Rowley, All American Rejects, and LIVESTRONG,” explains Mozilla.


The Personas project kicked-off at the end of 2007 and since then the Mozilla Labs team has been working hard in order to improve the extension. At this time, here is what you can expect to get from Personas:
- More than 500 designs, ranging from established artist designs to independent designs.
- You can set up your own persona, which you can enjoy all on your own or you could submit it to the designs gallery and let the whole world appreciate it.
- Easy-to-use interface for contributing designs.
- Extended language support: Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, German, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese.

What does the future hold fore Personas? Mozilla Labs sheds a little light into the matter: “Mozilla is dedicated to promoting choice and innovation on the Internet. Personas extends on that mission by giving Firefox fans, both new and established, the ability to make the browser reflect their personality, interests and passions. This is the first of many steps to expand the catalog of available designs by reaching out to both established designers and the imagination of our community.”
