Customize Theme and Appearance on Brave browser

You might have heard of the saying – Looks are everything. I do not know if it is true in life but looks matter in some cases—for example, the theme of your browser. Regarding functionality, there is no reason to use a browser theme.

The theme or browser appearance generally does not improve or hamper the functioning of the browser. But it can make the browser more pleasing.

If you spend a lot of time online, whether working on something or browsing the internet, you use the browser. Maybe you do not even pay attention to the theme and appearance of the browser. But changing the aesthetic of the browser can be a game-changer.

I recently changed the theme on the Brave browser to Dark mode and realized what a difference it made! Something was charming about the browser after I changed the theme.

We will guide you on how you change the theme and appearance of the Brave browser to spice up your browsing experience.

Bottom Line

Themes change the look and experience of your browser, like the color of the tabs, the background of the tabs, and the address bar. The browser’s color scheme is changed, giving it a new look.

Themes do not alter how a browser works. It merely changes the appearance of the browser. You can select a theme color and avatar on the Brave browser and even download and use themes.

Sometimes, minor things can make the most significant differences. It rings true when it comes to changing the theme and appearance of your browser. For example, a theme based on your favorite color can brighten your mood. It is for this very reason that I decided to create this post.

Customizing the theme and appearance on the Brave browser is child’s play. You can choose from many theme colors, pick an avatar from the various options, and download themes from the Chrome web store, which has thousands of exciting themes.

If you have never tried experimenting with Brave browser themes, this is your sign to do so! I can promise you that it will blow your mind! You will find yourself paying much more attention to the browser’s appearance.

  1. Sorry, but themes on Brave is the worst experience I ever had in browsers. Firefox is much slower, but it’s a peace of cake and so nice when installing and viewing themes. But when you install a theme from Crome Web Store on Brave:
    – Many themes (maybe most) don’t install. Firefox themes are available almost all of them.
    – Only a small part of the sreen is themed (the color of the tabs). In many cases (in most cases, to be honest), nothing is themed. Firefox themes are much more beautiful and the whole browsing region (tabs, bookmarks bar, buttons bar) is themed with parts from theme’s image (and not only with one simple color)
    – You cannot explore the themes you have download, as in Firefox.
    Please take care of themes issues, we use Brave because is the fastest browser, but it’s the worst on appearance.

    1. I agree. I have to assume that the themes work in Chrome but not in Brave because I don’t see anything like the previews given in the Theme store. I came here searching to find out what is wrong with my themes in Brave.
