TechCrunch reported on the Mozilla Labs Personas work, allowing you to theme your Firefox web browser. I share Robin’s opinion that Mozilla should maybe, just maybe, focus on making Firefox a kick ass web browser, and leave the doodads and geegaws for other folks. Enter Brand Thunder, a company in Columbus, OH looking to “offer companies a compelling, patent-pending solution for creating a more persistent presence with their internet consumer.”
Change your browser’s look and feel without restarting! Install any of the Booms below, when you have more than one – click the B/T button in the toolbar, choose “Pick a Boom” and you’re there. Booms run on the Firefox browser. If you’re not already using Firefox, you can get it for free right here.
We started Brand Thunder to work with some of the world’s leading brands to bring you REALLY cool themes and extensions. Based on your response, we are onto something. We employ an incredible team of designers, developers and marketers to work with the brands to bring these bundles to you for free!
I’m not the target audience for this kind of thing, but I know a lot of people who want to show their school pride all over their computer desktop, and would be only too happy to keep that going into the browser. The same holds true for folks’ favorite bands, favorite emo poets, and favorite Martha Stewart color ensemble.
Hey Mozilla, why not leave the decorating to these folks, and focus on what you do best?
