It’s time to finally end my theming efforts. I have no plans to update my themes for Firefox 4 or later. Reasons for this include a better default theme, a lower number of users of my themes and a large amount of work required just for maintenance. Thanks to everyone who has been using them.
I welcome suggestions of opportunities to make use of my design skills.
Here are another couple of photos I quite like. I have also updated the photos in my previous posts with improved post-processing, considerably so in some cases.
All are available in high quality, suitable for use as desktop backgrounds, for example.
The new Kempelton version has an updated back and forward button style just like Qute 4.1, as well as a few more improvements. Each of the default set of toolbar icons has been carefully tweaked in color and shape. The back and forward buttons are slightly lighter and the stop icon is more subdued and shaded more consistent with the other icons.
With such a simple design as that of the Kempelton reload icon, you might think it would be easy to find the right shape, but I have kept finding the need to refine it in pretty much every version.
Together, I think, the impression is lighter and more balanced and harmonic.
Kempelton Large is also updated.
Icon set additions
The SVG set is updated as well and has a few additions not in the Firefox theme, seen here. They were for an updated Thunderbird theme, but then I lost interest and got less time.
With a new Firefox version almost out, it is time for my “traditional” theme updates. Other than Firefox 3.6 compatibility, Qute 4.1 hasn’t changed very much. An exception being a few changes to the back and forward buttons.
The forward button has a revised shape, inspired by Firefox 4 mock-ups. It is shaded with more depth to better match the back button. The etching around the buttons is removed which helps reducing clutter, and the drop-down arrow has a clearer mouse-over indication.
The SVG set is also updated.
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.
