Valentine’s Day is a day for love. No matter if it is your spouse, significant other, child, or even your pet, it is a day to celebrate what is in your heart. Since the holiday is soon approaching, what better way to get in the mood than with some cool themes, extensions, and apps for your Chrome browser?
Dress It Up with Love
For the Whimsical
Valentine Love Doodles gives you a lovely ivory background with cartoon-style gifts, hearts, teddy bears, and balloon kisses. The nice red stripe through the top of the browser lets your tabs, toolbar, and menu items still stand out so they are easy to read.
Similar to the Valentine Love Doodles theme, Valentine Love Fonts and Letters has the pretty red section at the top. However, it has some bolder fonts, colors, and hearts with the word “love”. This one is perfect for putting that affection right in your face.
For the Loving Couples
Valentine Couple in Love Drinking Tea is a cute theme in pink and purple for your tabs and toolbar. The toolbar text automatically changes to purple and the adorable young boy and girl enjoy sipping tea with a couple of sweet bunnies.
For something a little more artsy, Valentine Couple in Love Under the Moon is an attractive theme. Again, your tabs and toolbar appear in an appealing deep red which nicely offsets the black and white creative picture of the couple holding hands.
For the Artistic
Love Smoke is a deep purple and black theme that is quite attractive. The blazing heart of smoke and flames is representative of a deep love and the beautiful purple color for your tabs and toolbar matches perfectly. This is a sharp Valentine’s Day theme.
For a simple, yet attractive theme, Love is Love is a great option. This one offers a dark gray background with lighter gray for the tabs and toolbar. A splash of paint let behind the text “Love is Love, pure and natural for all” adds an eye-catching touch. For those not into the pinks and purples, this is a good-looking theme.
Waiting for the Special Day
For Cute Tools
Countdown Extension [No Longer Available] is a handy way to count the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until Valentine’s Day. With two different display options for the holiday countdown, you can pick the blue one and tweet some kindness right from the extension. Or, select the purple color to display a beating heart. As a bonus, there is an Easter theme, so you can hold onto this one even after Valentine’s Day passes.
For adding little cupids to any Web page you visit, Valentize [No Longer Available] is there for you. Just tap the button in your toolbar and presto, tons of cute cupids with their arrows will appear. And that’s not all. You will also see the background of the page change to candy hearts, hear some sweet music, and see small animations when you click on the page. It does not seem that you can make all of this disappear once you hit the button, but if you refresh the page it will go back to normal.
