gmail_theme2 Till now we used so many scripts and extension to beautify the Gmail contour.Greasemonkey is quite famous in geeks for these scriptious works.Good news is that Google recently launched the official version of Gmail themes and skins.It have wide variety of colors and themed flavors.

In an official post on Google blog it says
We wanted to go beyond simple color customization, so out of the 30 odd themes we’re launching today, there’s a shiny theme with chrome styling, another one that turns your inbox into a retro notepad, nature themes that change scenery over time, weather driven themes that can rain on your mailbox, and fun characters to keep you in good company. There’s even an old school ascii theme (Terminal) which was the result of a bet between two engineers — it’s not exactly practical, but it’s great for testing out your geek cred. We’ve also done a minor facelift to Gmail’s default look to make it crisper and cleaner — you might notice a few colors and pixels shifted around here and there.”

I would like to develop some themes for the Gmail incase i’ll get the chance for serving.If anyone else is interested in this i can also make a portals for some unofficial themes.
