Tour de france theme updated

Few years back , six to be precise, I was fascinated about chrome and its features so much that I created a chrome theme for tour de france. Now, I don’t use chrome, except for testing purposes. Safari rocks my life these days 🙂

That said, I was pretty surprised that my theme had 500 weekly users as on date. I was mind blown by the audience that the theme receives after 6 years of dormancy. Given the Tour de France season now, I thought I will give it some love. I did a minor update to the theme. Given the friendly chrome developer I am 😛 , I wanted to ensure that the chrome web store policies and  other conditions are met. I made some minor tweaks to the theme and updated the screenshots.

Unfortunately, due to lack of time, this theme isn’t retina optimized yet. Yeah kinda non starter, right? If you are one of them. Sorry! The minor update was not so minor when you consider that I spent 3 hours fixing things to adhere to chrome web store standards. But optimizing is a time consuming enough that I could work on creating a new theme than change this one. May be I will get to that later one of these days.  The theme still great for the tour de France season. Until the next big update, please try out the theme and let me know how it works for you.

My new giro theme for chrome.

Being cyclist and extensive chrome user, couple of weeks back I was searching the chrome web store for cycling related themes and apps.I did find an interesting web app, but I was disappointed with the lack of themes related to cycling.
So I decided to take the plunge myself and give creating a theme myself. I learnt about the art of making the themes from the help sections and app building sections and I managed to build this theme. It’s a seasonal theme for the giro de italia that’s currently happening now. You can try the theme from here A screen shot of the theme is below. Feel free to let me know your thoughts and any theme request you have. Will try to incorporate theme in my future themes.
