Maori Graphics for your Browser (come on have some fun!)

2 min read

Kia ora whanau – just letting you know that Firefox (a web browser) has a cool addon that allows you to personalise your Firefox browser skin (if you’re using IE – change!!) – here is the link for Firefox (which are the creators of those cool tabs you use, and which IE copied!)

At the moment there are two Maori designs, we’ve just uploaded another which will probably be available for public use on 26 Feb 2010. We’d love if others can have a play and make some more designs to share with the whanau. It’s easy!!

Here’s a screenshot of the Wahine Toa Persona (note the cool pink!) which we made yesterday:


Here’s some details on what “Personas” are all about:

What are Personas?

Personas are easy-to-install, easy-to-use themes that change the look of your Firefox web browser. There are thousands of Personas to choose from, with more added every day. Click here to visit the Personas gallery and start looking for designs that fit your style.

What do I need to use Personas?

In less than 60 seconds, you can install a Persona and transform the look of your Firefox web browser. Just go here and click the green download button. After installation, you will be asked to quickly restart Firefox. Once Personas is installed, you’ll be able to choose and change your selected Persona any time simply by clicking on the little fox mask in the lower left corner of your browser window or by visiting the gallery and selecting a different design.

How do I undo a Persona design?

To undo the design you most recently selected, click on the little fox in the bottom left corner of your browser, click on “Recently Selected” and the design you were using before. If you prefer not to have a Persona design (ie, grey chrome), click on the little fox and select “Default.”

Can I create my own Persona design?

Absolutely! All you need to do is create two graphics files in your favorite graphics editing program (e.g., Photoshop). To get started, read more about how to create a Persona.
