FiM: Twilight Sparkle Google Chrome Theme by M24Designs FiM: Twilight Sparkle Google Chrome Theme by M24Designs
After a few people mentioned to me that I should take a shot at designing some Google Chrome themes because, as to quote them "I'd put it on it if you made one." So, I found an easy-to-use design program that inputs the images for me, without having to go through the hassle of the code. So, as a test, here is the first attempt. A Twilight Sparkle Chrome theme.
At this point in time, it's in beta, and I'm still working out a few kinks, but that's why I put it up here. I need people with different monitor sizes to see how everything works out on it to be sure it doesn't begin looking sloppy at larger resolutions.

Installation Guide:

For both Mac & PC

Inside of the extracted zip file is a .crx file. Simply drag it into the browser. The download bar should appear with a warning message. Because it's not a registered item in the Chrome store, this is normal. Hit yes, and the theme will install.

Google Chrome (C) Why am I even putting this here. It should be obvious.

Yay! I used your Fluttershy one for the longest time. Then I needed to reinstall my Google Chrome, and now I'm switching to Twilight this time :3

Try right-clicking the document and clicking Open with. A window will show up saying that you have no programs that can open it. Select "Choose from a list of programs" and hit okay. Google Chrome should be listed as one of the programs. Choose it, and then the message on the download bar should appear.

You have to extract the file onto the desktop. You can't just drag and drop from the original file in winRAR. :) Drag the file from the desktop to the chrome open window.

Note: for anyone using a Mac: open the .zip file, open the extracted folder, open the theme folder, and then drag the file named theme1328930405.crx (unless the filename changes, in which case drag the .crx file) onto your Chrome icon in the dock. On the bottom downloads area of the window, a warning about extensions harming your computer will open. Click continue (as this won't harm it, I promise), and you're done! Just thought I'd add a guide on how to install it if you use a Mac. By the way, the background image is amazing. I use a 1920*1080 monitor, and it's perfect.

Ah, thank you. That means that there's no difference between the PC and Mac versions. I really should update the install guide with this information.

I'd like to get it and help you out, but I am forbidden from putting pony on my computer...

Also, I think these would look much cooler if you found a good way to implement each of the mane 6's element into the upper bar. Toward the top right?

Wow, didn't expect Angry Birds as well. I thought the game is usually played as a program, not in the browser. :o

Speaking of that, the only smartphone game app I encounter to play in the browser is Cut The Rope, which is to promote IE9.

It was released about a year ago in the Chrome Store for free. They're stil adding levels, but it still plays just like the original.
Surprisingly Chrome has quite a few games in the store, and they range between free and a few bucks usuallly.

I know the game, who doesn't know Angry Birds, except what I mean is playing it in a browser is impossible. Here's what I mean of Cut The Rope played in a browser which originally meant for smartphones as an application.

Did you see that? It runs in our browser (Any browser, including me using Firefox and it works), NOT as a separate application which needs to run from our hard disk. I hope you understand that. ;)

Really? I didn't see it, when I was at the Rovio website, all they showed me is to buy the game, demo version is available, but since I'm always on the piracy side, I never download demos, so I thought demos is the game will play as an application after you downloaded it.

Well, show me the proof you're telling me about it. ;) Thanks in advance.

There is a .crx file in the zip file. Open it. Windows should say that it doesn't know what program to use to open the file. From the list of programs, choose Google Chrome. Once you do, in Chrome, a warning message should appear in the download bar at the bottom of the browser asking you to continue. Click yes, and the theme will be installed.

Okay. Hit Browse then. If you're using XP, if I remember correctly, it should bring up a list of all of your programs. If you're using Windows 7, then it will bring up a file selection window.

XP: Just search the list nutil you see Google Chrome.
Win7: Just select a shortcut to Google chrome, like the one on your desktop.

Then, just follow the rest of the instructions in the description.
