Google Chrome Themes

Inspired by the Windows Classic desktop theme, toolbars and other elements of these themes match the native Windows XP Classic colour scheme. That’s not to say they won’t work well under other environments, but they will certainly provide a more consistent user experience for Windows Classic fans.

There are 16 themes in total, based on 3 colour schemes. Some variations include a partial window frame, resembling a traditional application window. Originally based on the Chrome Professional theme by Davewils55.

To install, extract the zip file(s) and then drag the desired theme into Google Chrome.
