What the Personas 2.0 Site Has to Offer

To let Firefox uses customize the way the browser looks, the Mozilla Foundation released Personas 1.0 this spring. For those of you that are not familiar with Personas, here’s the lowdown: Personas is a collection of skins for the Firefox browser. If you’re currently using Firefox 3.5, you need to get the Personas add-on to apply any of these skins. But when Firefox 3.6 (currently Firefox 3.6 Beta 5) will be released, this will not be necessary as Personas will be built into the browser.

Mozilla’s add-on site serves the Personas add-on. And the Personas official site. The difference is that the Personas official site comes with a lot more than just the add-on. There’s a FAQ, instructions on how to use Personas, and a long list of skins to view. Speaking of the official Personas site, the Personas development team announced it released v. 2.0 of the site.


“The Mozilla Labs team launched Personas 1.0 in March with the idea that it shouldn’t be hard to make your internet browser more fun and personal. Over the past eight months, with your feedback and support, we iterated on the Personas experience fifteen times (10 times on the website, 5 times on the extension) and are now pleased to introduce Personas 2.0,” said Ryan Doherty and Suneel Gupta on behalf of the Personas development team.

Here is what you can expect to get from the Personas 2.0 site:
- Cleaner look and feel.
- Firefox users that already have the Personas add-on benefit from a customized experience when they visit the site.
- The site will suggest more Personas, based on the ones you already have.
- New features have been added: search and favorites.
- More designs than ever before. The Personas team believes that by the end of the year there will be more than 40,000 designs in the gallery.
- New “up and coming” section that displays the most popular Personas.

“To let you discover new artists and designs, we sorted the Personas gallery by “up and coming” designs,” explained the Personas team. “This allows you to quickly view personas designs that are gaining popularity in the Personas community. You can also easily switch your view to sort by ‘popular’ or ‘just added’.”
