We have covered several tools in previous reviews that allow a user to customize a website. Most of these tools have either been userscripts like Facebook Fixer or bookmarklets like Readability. Some web browser add-ons and extensions like Firebug can also be used to alter the design of a website.
Webpage Decorator is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser that provides the user with options to customize a website’s color scheme and fonts. The extension will place its icon inside the Google Chrome address bar, something that we are not that fond of as it reduces the available space of the website’s url.
A click on the icon opens a menu with options to customize the fonts and colors of the website. This includes changing the background image, background color, link and visited link color, text color as well as the font size and font type.
A color picker is displayed whenever a color needs to be changed. The web user can either pick one of the most used colors or use an RGB slider to select a custom color. There is unfortunately no option to enter hex values.
The font size of the website and the font can also be changed with Webpage Decorator. The font size can have a value between 8 and 30 pixels. The available fonts might depend on the computer system. Eight fonts were available for selection on our Windows 7 test system.
All changes become visible right away and will be saved so that the website will always be displayed with the custom colors and fonts. The program has a handy reset feature to undo the changes and display the website in its original state.
Webpage Decorator is an interesting add-on for users who want to modify the colors and fonts of websites that they visit regularly. The Google Chrome extension can be downloaded from the Google Chrome extension gallery.
