Want to change your Google Chrome Background? Google provides some Google Chrome background themes for their official web browser but all I can say is “ewww..”, no hard feelings to the artists though but I’ve tried some of the good ones (or so I thought) and none suited my taste. So I went back to the old Google Chrome Background basic theme instead. It appears that Google Chrome theme engine does not really support changing its background theme too much like Mozilla Firefox.
How to change Google Chrome Backgrounds
If you want to have a try changing your Google Chrome theme with the Google Chrome Background Themes however, feel free to. You might need to switch to the Chrome Beta or Developer channel though to grab them (or at least using Google Chrome version 18.104.22.168). Source: Official Google Blog
To change Google Chrome Background, click on that wrench icon and go to Options. Choose the “Personal Stuff” from the options and you should see the area where you can change the Themes.
Click on the “Get themes” link and it should take you to the Google Chrome themes gallery where you can simply pick a theme and change your Google Chrome Background themes.
The themes are sorted by either Artists (from designers around the world) and themes by Google (which are mostly themes of different colors and gradient backgrounds). The themes by Artists provide varieties such as from Anime, Celebrities, and others. Click on a theme and Google Chrome will automatically change its theme accordingly. You can then decide whether to keep the theme or discard it away with just a click of a button. It’s that simple. This way, you can preview lots of themes and then pick one that looks the best.
Firefox themes are definitely tons better than Google Chrome themes but changing Google Chrome Backgrounds can never be easier here, compared to Firefox.
