Windows 7: personas for IE

personas for IE

Firefox has this thing for your browser called persoanas that change the background of you browser. I was wondering if IE 8 had any?

There might be themes or personas created by a third-party, but I don't think they are supported by Microsoft because there's no option to download them from the official IE website. You have to search for them in Bing or Google or something.

As far as I know, there is no official way of using IE addon functionality to add skins; the "skins" you find on the net change images in the program, and therefore are probably not all that safe. I've heard of spyware embedded in an IE skin before. If you do use them, VT the files before installing.

both of the above posters are correct. non of the skins available are supported by MS, and i cannot guarantee that they are safe to use, only that i've seen a few available.
