How To Make Your Own Custom Themes For Chrome

The default Google Chrome is just a plain white background, blue frame, black text and buttons and that’s how it has been for a while. It’s simple and functional and that’s how google likes it.

But Google also understands that some people might find the default theme boring. So they added a few themes in the Chrome Web Store and allowed other Google Chrome themes developers to offer their themes for the public.

All you have to do is install these pre-defined themes.  although they are different from the default, they might not be exactly what you’re looking for in a Chrome theme. Fortunately you can easily make your own custom themes for Chrome;  even without any coding knowledge.
