More chance for Vivaldi: No more Firefox themes



  • Firefox will remove the full theme support - so as for customizing, here is another field where Vivaldi can shine: http://news.softpedia.com/news/mozilla-plans-to-remove-support-for-firefox-complete-themes-495866.shtml



  • Man, Firefox is losing more and more market share. Why don't they just adopt the Chromium engine and become another Chrome clone? They're going in that direction anyway. They seem to struggle a bit staying relevant.

    Vivaldi can take over as the most customizable browser with the ability to add theming and change the entire browser to the way you like it. They will take the browsing world by storm and change the way people browse the web.

    I believe that while they won't go for the same thing that Chrome is doing, they are simple enough but with extra customizability and tailored for the power users(I don't see how casual users can't use this too). Vivaldi could pose a threat to Chome and Firefox in the future with their browser due to it's features, optimizations and team behind it.

    While I prefer Vivaldi (and prefered Presto Opera before that), I see this as sad news. Firefox has been very important to the evolution of browsers over the past dozen years, and it seems a shame for it to become less distinctive. Like old Opera, it has long held the quality of being excellently customizable, and it seems a shame for a significant part of that to be dropped from it too.

    If I recall the timing correctly, one thing that irritated me was when, about year or so before the switch to Opera 15, around the time they were dropping support for various my.opera.com services, opera.com already started making heavy-modification themes hard or impossible to find any more on the site, in favor of promoting so-called themes that merely added a background image and nothing more. I feel bad that longtime Firefox tweakers are now experiencing a similar event.
