Google Chrome Cool Black Skin

We love Google Chrome. But quite frankly, the blue theme sucks on my black theme. If you’ve seen the screenshots of Google Chrome on XP vs Vista, you’ve probably noticed that the interface looks completely different. If you want to make your XP version use a slick black theme or any other theme given below, you can do so with a custom hack.

To install these themes, download your the zip file from the link at last of this post then uncompressed it and copy the default.dll file(found in zip) and replace the once found in:
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application.2.149.27\Themes\
  • Windows Vista: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\\Themes\
Note: Don’t forget to make backup of default theme file before replacing with new one.

Removing the Theme :

Simply delete the new default.dll file and rename the copy back to the original defualt.dll name. That’s all there is to it. You should note that these themes will have to be re-patched every time a new version of Google Chrome is released, which could be quite often.
