Bored up looking at same old interface from years, time to give web your colors! Stylish is a Firefox extension which enables you to change the look & feel of a web site. I got to know about this at Barcamp Bangalore from The100rabh a fellow Blog-a-lorean. If you take example of Gmail, it has the same interface from the day one. Though slighter changes were made in adding functionalities like chat inside email, there were no changes made in color scheme & look/feel.
Stylish enables you to define your own stylesheet for a website. But for writing a stylesheet of your own, you should be having knowledge of CSS. Hey, don’t stop reading! there are lot of ready stylesheets for many websites, which you can just load into Stylish. Stylesheets are available at http://userstyles.org
Procedure to install Stylish & load new stylesheet:
- Install Firefox if you don’t have from getfirefox.com
- Install extension Stylish for firefox from addons.firefox.com
- Browse available stylesheets at http://userstyles.org & load stylesheets you want
- That’s it!! start re-designing the web!
To give you an example how stylish can change a web site, I am posting couple of screenshots of Gmail after loading awesome stylesheet Gmail Re-Designed.
