Chrome 29 Themes
New browser? Why not download a new browser theme to go with it? Check out a few of our favorite Chrome 29 compatible themes below:
San Francisco 49ers
A new, updated browser pairs perfectly with the new football season, full of promise and high hopes for every team (well, almost every one). The San Francisco 49ers came oh-so-close in last seasons’ Super Bowl, and look to make another run in 2013, making this a particularly compelling Chrome 29 theme.
The Huffington Post
Stay up-to-date with your favorite news source, thanks to an integrated news ticker and ability to turn the theme into its own toolbar for minimal reading. When you want to impress your friends with your knowledge of current events, or you simply want to avoid doing any work for a while, this is the theme for you.
School is back in session! Whether you’re an incoming freshman or an eighth-year senior just “figuring out life,” this college Chrome theme will always showcase the pride you have in your school. Even better, it provides easy access to the latest news about Wildcats athletics, links to Facebook and Twitter and more.
Machine Gun Kelly
The Cleveland-raised rapper makes headlines for a lot of “interesting” reasons, but he backs it up with a flow that puts him at the top of the rap game. With each outrageous sold-out show, fans clamor for a new studio album. Until then, those same fans can follow his every move with this Chrome 29 theme.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are on the cusp of making the playoffs for the first time in two decades – if that isn’t enough to make fans flock to this Chrome 29 theme, nothing will be.
