Like an iPhone, You Can Change Your Google Chrome's Background and Theme

·2-min read

Roughly 40 hours of my week is dedicated to researching, browsing, emailing, and writing using Google Chrome. I'm on it all day (almost) every day, but it wasn't until recently that I started playing around with its backgrounds, colors, and themes. As it turns out, Chrome's Web Store features dozens of themes boasting different colors and designs, and some are even created by artists. I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this feature while switching tabs one day and spent a solid 30 minutes sifting through all of Google Chrome's customization options. I landed on a pastel rainbow theme, but truly, the choices are endless. In addition to changing your theme, you can also change your Google background, as well as the color of your omnibar and tabs. There's a whole world of possibilities to make Google Chrome your own. If you're interested, here's how to do it.
