Kempelton Large 3.1

It’s back! The large version of Kempelton is once again updated to the same level as the regular theme. It is a bit unpolished and perhaps buggy, but it’ll do for now.

Kempelton 3.1

preview-white-textKempelton 3.1 is released. It is updated for, and requires, Firefox 3.5 (beta). (If you don’t want to run a pre-release, you shouldn’t have to wait much longer until it’s final.)

Other than that, the theme has been refined in numerous areas. Among the more noticeable are the icons for back, forward, reload and print.

I have also updated the SVG set with the new graphics.

Qute 4

previewThe oldest Firefox theme available has returned in a completely new version. I’m proud to announce Qute 4, available for Firefox 3.5.

Get Qute on Firefox Add-ons

The icons in Qute 3.* date back to late 2004, shortly after the release of Firefox 1.0. It has remained fairly popular, but has increasingly lagged behind my skills as well as in completeness. To maintain the theme properly, the only option was doing everything from scratch. And here it is.

With this being a new version, I naturally tried to stay pretty close to the old icons. Still, to make the style consistent, and generally improve the quality, I felt some significant changes were necessary. The result is I think 4 is closer to the original “spirit” of Qute, not to mention just simply better. See for yourself in this comparison.

In addition, as with Kempelton, I’m making the Qute 4 SVG files available and allowed for use under license. Just get Inkscape, which is free and easy to use, and you can edit, convert to PNG or learn from them.
