Personas now on AMO

About a year ago, Mozilla Labs launched Personas, a way to easily create and install lightweight themes for Firefox and Thunderbird.  Over 9 million downloads and 30,000 Personas later, we’ve included them on AMO as a new way to personalize your browser.  Simply click the Personas category on the left side of AMO and you’ll be able to quickly browse and preview Personas.

Personas in AMO

If you’re running the nightly build of Firefox 3.6- you’re in luck!  Personas support is baked in and will be a part of the final 3.6 release.  Otherwise, for those of you on Firefox 3 and 3.5, all you’ll have to do is install the Personas extension.  Once the extension is installed, you’ll be able to get live previews of personas and install them with a single click.  To learn more about Personas, including how to create your own in a few minutes, visit getpersonas.com.

    Shame though that the FF3.6 built in ‘Personas support’ (which is actually called ‘lightweight themes’) forces out existing themes, even if that theme actually supports Personas (such as Nautipolis and LittleFox).
