You love Chrome themes. You love how they spruce up the look of your browser, from eye-popping colors to images of your favorite sports teams, celebrities, hobbies, holidays and more. You love that they turn your ordinary browser into a display of something you love. So what’s even better than finding a Chrome theme that will make your browser look great? How about creating one of your own?
There are a number of Chrome theme creators out there to help people of all skill levels create their own browser themes. We’ve put together a list of our favorite Chrome theme creators, listing out their pros and cons to help you find the best one out there.
Pros: Offers a wide variety of customizable options, allowing users to change the frame, toolbar, tabs and background with any colors and/or images they want. It’s a simple, easy-to-navigate site, which is really what you want when it comes to a .crx theme editor. Once your theme has been created, you can either apply it to your Chrome browser immediately or save it for later use.
Cons: There is no immediate option to share your theme over social media, nor is there a gallery in which to display your creation.
Pros: This is another simple Chrome theme creator, helping users create their own browser themes in just a few easy steps. Just about every aspect of the browser’s appearance – from the status bar and text to all of its buttons – can be customized, and once you’re finished, you have a number of options for what to do with your brand-new theme, including sharing your custom Chrome theme in ThemeBeta’s online gallery.
Cons: Some people will be turned off by the simplicity, and those without coding experience might not be able to make the theme look exactly as planned.
Pros: Google Chrome theme creators just don’t get any easier than this. For Chromizer, you simply choose an image for your theme and upload it. That’s it – your theme is magically ready for your use. There is also a helpful video at the bottom of the page for users with any questions.
Cons: That’s just it, this is a very simple Chrome theme editor. This isn’t for anyone looking to do anything fancy with their new browser theme.
My Chrome Theme
Pros: This is Chrome’s official browser theme creator tool, so you know you’re getting something that will work well and give you a finished product to be proud of. Like other Chrome theme makers, this one asks you to upload an image for the background ofyour theme, followed by options to choose custom colors for the omnibox, tabs and any other remaining parts of the browser. Then, you can name your theme and install it on your own browser while sharing it with others through Google+ or a unique URL.
Cons: There really don’t seem to be any, unless you’re someone who doesn’t like installing Chrome extensions whatsoever. Also, naturally, the extension only offers the option to share the theme through Google+.

Total Chrome Theme Maker
Pros: Another browser extension for you to download, Total Chrome Theme Maker is a .crx theme editor that allows you to use .jpg images to reduce file sizes along with offering a lot more editable content than other builders like it. The extension has an exceptional color picker/tint tool and, according to its description, has a “sexy UI,” which, as it elaborates, isn’t vital to making a theme but is still nice to have.
Cons: If you’re not particularly experienced with the intricacies of code speak or design, this might be a harder .crx theme editor to navigate.
