Reading back on my IRC log last night i saw Kahn linking this site, i'd never heard of it before but it's a pretty cool add-on for skinning FF. Anyway, i had some free time this afternoon so i decided to make an SSX one.

Image

If you fancy using it too just head over here and click the "wear this" button which should appear below the image, once you have the add-on installed that is. The design and description has our address on it as well so mebbe we'll get some visitors from it from time to time.
This should be up on our media page shortly too, cheers Anny :)

It is very nice looking, I'm using it now too. I'm having difficulty reading the font on my menu bar and bookmarks due to the color. Turquoise on a varying blue background isn't easy on the eyes. Is that just me? Any way to change that without having to dig around and change the skin, errr, *Persona* itself?

Glad you guys like it ;)

There's an option on the personas site for me to edit the design i've uploaded which lets you choose the exact colour # of the text, it's simple enough for me to do it's just finding a happy medium between too dark or too bright whilst still looking good. When the text is too bright it becomes harder to read the menu's (when you highlight) as well with it being on top of a bright grey background so have to think of that as well as the regular menu bar/bookmarks toolbar.
Also there's no preview on the site to see how it'll look after the changes so i'd have to test the colours in photoshop first. (You can set a custom persona from images you have on your comp which is good for testing, but that only lets you select a limited amount of colours rather than you being able to use any you want)

I can try make the text a tad brighter if that'll help to make it easier for some of you to read, every time i make an edit it needs to be approved before it'll update on the site though so i'd want to keep that down to a minimum, don't want to be a nuisance to them heh. :)

A wee note, you have to revert to Default skin to wear it.
