Whether it’s film, television or print, zombies have found their way into every aspect of pop culture. Their influence ranges from the popular comic/TV series “The Walking Dead” to “World War Z”, the best-selling book that has now been turned into a summer blockbuster movie starring Brad Pitt.
There is really no shortage of zombies these days, so what is it that draws people to the world of zombies and, subsequently, the world of zombie browser themes?
As is the case with many aspects of pop culture, we like being transported to other realities and settings that may not be possible in our own world. Something about the dystopian, hopeless and horrifying world of a zombie plague really gets our hearts racing.
It should come as no surprise, then, that there are so many different kinds of zombie browser themes available, or that they’re so popular. People really cannot get enough of these rotting, flesh-eating beasts.
We’ve included some of our favorite zombie Chrome and Firefox themes for you below, and judging by the variety, it’s certainly obvious just how popular they truly are.
Zombie Chrome Themes
Zombie Interactive Theme
This flesh-rotting zombie Firefox theme not only makes your browser look especially ghoulish, but it also gives you quick access to sites like Facebook and Twitter, along with a video sidebar for top news features. That way, if a zombie apocalypse is underway, you’ll be the first to know.
The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead, in both its comic and television forms, is largely responsible for the zombie renaissance. Viewers have made the show one of the most popular on TV, while the ongoing comic series continues to expertly paint a grim world for its characters.
In this zombie Chrome theme, you face the funny – though also terrifying – notion of zombies learning to ride Segways. If they’ve found a way to update their methods for reaching our flesh, what chance do we really have of surviving?
Splash Kid Zombie
This zombie Chrome theme, from iThinkp.!, sure looks cute, but we imagine it would be just as dangerous if you were to cross paths with it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops – Zombies
If you’ve ever played Call of Duty, you know that the zombie minigame is just as good, if not better, than the full game itself. When you just want to spend some time shooting as many members of a growing zombie horde as you can, this is the perfect game for you.
Zombie Firefox Themes
It only takes one zombie to get its hands on you before you’re being eaten alive. It’s a good thing they’re (probably) not real, right? And when zombies are depicted as being able to run fast, it’s amazing to think anyone could survive an apocalypse of those proportions.
There can’t be many nightmares worse than facing down a zombie horde with nowhere to go. So why not relive that terrifying scenario in a browser theme?
What could possibly be worse than zombies? That’s right – Nazi zombies. That simple premise is the basis for Dead Snow, a 2009 Norwegian film in which a number of dead Nazis are resurrected as, you guessed it, zombies. It’s a must-see movie for all fans of the undead.
More of The Walking Dead
The importance of The Walking Dead for zombie popularity really can’t be overstated. With its incredibly popular TV show, even casual viewers are becoming acquainted with the keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat world of zombies.
Zombies Ate My Neighbors
If you have ever played Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis, then you know the sheer awesomeness of this video game. Like any great game, the premise is simple in “Zombies Ate My Neighbors“: you run around each level with different guns and power-ups, destroying as many zombies and monsters as you can. As far as zombie Firefox themes go, it doesn’t get much better than this.
