It’s been a fun journey over the past 5 years creating Firefox themes. I created nearly a dozen themes, stating with iPox, and I’ve got over 5 million downloads! However, I just can’t keep up.
With Firefox 4 just around the corner, my themes would probably need to be revamped from the ground up and I just don’t have the time. Heck, some of theme aren’t even updated for Firefox 3.6!
It’s a hard decision to make though as I loved creating them. I loved making the fans happy and I wish I could keep up with them.
I’ve got other things going on that are a better use of my time so I’m saying goodbye to Firefox themes.
So what’s going to happen to the themes? Good question!
At this point and time they’ll remain as they are. No updates, no development.
If you’re a Firefox themer, I’d be open to discussing letting you take them over and continuing their creation. The only thing I ask is that you keep the integrity of the themes intact.
I gave iAqua away years ago and it found a nice home. I was happy to see it continue to live on with a new developer.
extero also went to the same developer, however it turned into a completely different theme and extero as I knew it disappeared.
It’s hard for me to give my themes to a new developer as I worry that they’ll turn them into something that I don’t like. Then again, I have to get over that as it’s their theme now and it’s better to live on then fade away into nothingness.
If you’re waiting for me to update one of my themes, it’s sad to say, but it’ll probably never happen. Then again, I may pull a Brett Favre. You never know, but I doubt it.
It’s been a great journey and everyone who downloaded my themes rock! It was a lot of fun and I’ll miss it.
