Best browser themes for Chromebooks

What are the best themes for Chromebooks?

Since your Chromebook uses the Chrome browser, you can customize the look and feel of it to suit your mood and interests. The Chrome Web Store is packed with myriad themes, so we went in a pulled out a few of the best, just in case you didn’t feel like slogging through.

These themes won’t change your Chromebook’s background or layout, but they’ll definitely make your Chrome browsing experience more enjoyable or more functional, depending on your preference.
