    Iowa State Chrome Theme

    In anticipation for the first football game of the season, I decided to finally finish an ISU theme for Chrome that I've been putting off completing for a while now.

    In order to install the file, you will need to download the file and change the file extension to .crx instead of .zip (the uploader won't allow file extensions it's not familiar with. .crx is the extension for Chrome themes).

    Then just drag the cyclones.crx file into your Chrome browser. It'll ask if you want to install it and accept. Voila! GO CYCLONES!

    Alternatively, if you are having problems renaming the file, you can also download it already with the .crx extension here: cyclones.crx If you just click on the link, Chrome should ask if you want to install it.

    For Chrome BETA, use this file: cyclonesbeta.crx

    Let me know if you have any suggestions for the theme. There were some limitations about what exactly I was able to edit so I didn't have quite the same freedom I had creating the Firefox theme with the buttons and such.

    I like it! Thanks!

    I remember someone made one for Firefox a couple years back. Anyone still have that one? We get firefox at work, so I want to grab it

    I made the Firefox one as well - you can still get it at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7758/ (I haven't updated it in quite a while, and there's still some imperfections).

    It keeps saying the file is corrupt? It won't let me open the zipped folder.

    Might have to use a different zip app. Try 7zip.

    You don't need to open the zip file. Just rename and drag into chrome.

    Nick, nice work again.

    Good to know. I was wondering what the heck I was supposed to do with those files. I rarely use chrome.

    Re: Iowa State Chrome Theme

    If you have Chrome setup to go the the Chrome home page when opened you get a special bonus. Didn't notice this on my home PC because it opens to iGoogle but got it on my work laptop.

    Actually, it's the "New Tab" page. Just hit Ctrl+N to see.

    Re: Iowa State Chrome Theme

    Can somebody post a screenshot before I download so I can see what it looks like?


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    It would be harder to post a screenshot than try it out.

    Well, I'm at work, where I have no Google Chrome. At home, where I will download it later, I have Google Chrome.

    This isn't working for me. It just acts like I'm trying to download the file again. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Nevermind, after a little searching I realized you meant to rename the file to *.crx.

    I am not the best with computers but I cannot get mine to rename. All it does is change the name of the folder not the actual file so it looks like cyclones.crx.zip when i look at the file name.. What am I doing wrong to rename it?
