Customized Firefox Personas: Sharks Version

Firefox allows customized "personas" now. I'm going to see if I can find some time to create one. For anyone interested (I'm lookin at you nemesis here's the link:

Two subpar personas already created:

http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/85144

I think this board can do something a bit classier.

OK here's my first attempt. I already don't like it, and the footer graphic seems to have gotten lost.

This is Sharks Territory v1

I like the Sabres one.

ngmcs8203 - your's looks great. unfortunately the tool bar at the top of my browser must be a lot shorter than yours. i can't see the type at all, and the shark's face is cut off.

Yeah, pretty minimal for me. But I guess that's not exactly the norm.

Lookin' good. Really like that top one. So these have to be approved before they can be used, or am I missing something?

You can have local machine custom personas too, but the graphics just need to live on your hard drive. The cool thing about using the ones hosted on google is that if I tweak the design a bit it will change on your machine automatically.

How to set up the local version:

Install firefox 3.6 and go to http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/

Make sure personas is installed on your machine by clicking on the button on that homepage. If it says "You're ready to go" then no need to install anything else.

Go here: http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/demo_create_3

Then follow the instructions below "Option 1: Test on Your Own Computer"

Damn, you're a mac user!

This is what mine looks like on a PC. I'll have to create a mac and PC version then.

That looks sharp!

That screen shot attachment I included is @100% view, so it's reliable to line up things up with.

Officially made it to the google servers. So this probably should be relabeled as Vista/Windows 7. Cuz on my XP box at home, it is slightly off as well.

Sharks Territory v2 Vista/7

on Firefox Minefield (3.7a3) your Territory v2 doesnt line up perfectly with Firefox's AwesomeBar, but thats not your fault. The major thing I have a beef with is that I use the Extended Statusbar addon and the SAN JOSE SHARKS wordmark on the bottom graphic makes the text down there hard to read. Do you think you could dial back the opacity of that text so that the white statusbar text on top of it is more readable?

I love the persona feature - it's customization that I actually want to use.

Aside from that, I use a super-thin toolbar set, partly because I use a netbook (Commands+URL+Search on line 1, tabs on line 2) so a lot of these don't come out the way they are necessarily supposed to, but they're still decent

same readability issue would occur when mousing over a URL, the destination URL would be difficult to read in the status bar. (without Extended Statusbar)

CaptivAte,

[edit]Looks like they updated it. Go to the persona home page and simply refresh the page if your persona doesn't change.[/edit]
