Recently, the Mozilla Foundation celebrated the fact that Firefox, in the 5 years since it was first released, has been downloaded more than 1 billion times. Firefox Personas, the collection of skins that you can use to change the way your browser looks, is not as successful as the Firefox browser is, but then it couldn’t be since it has been released about 2 and a half months ago. But things are moving in the right direction and Firefox Personas is steadily growing in popularity.

Proof of Personas’ growing popularity is the fact that the 10,000th design has made it to the Personas Gallery this week. This means that in the 10 weeks since Firefox Personas was launched the number of designs in the gallery has increased twofold.

“With the support of the Personas community, we continue to make it easier for artists to create new designs and have them be discovered. We developed step-by-step templates for creating designs, raised awareness of the preview functionality, and offered links to free, online tools that anyone can use to create great looking art for the browser. We also implemented a “movers and shakers” category on our homepage, which features the three fastest growing designs over the past 24 hours, and developed a dashboard for anyone to monitor the number of Personas in the approval queue. We are proud of the community’s large and vibrant gallery of art, and excited about continuing to make it better,” explained Toby Elliott, Myk Melez, Ryan Doherty, and Suneel Gupta on behalf of the Personas development team.

Firefox Personas is popular with artists and regular users alike. Since the Personas experiment was launched on the 31st of March, the current year, it has been downloaded more than 6.5 million times.

If you would like to get Personas, download location is available here and here.
