Quantum Lights theme for Firefox
Quantum Lights are Firefox Quantum palette-inspired theme which changes based on time of day! It makes full use of it dynamic theme capabilities The feature is not just restricted to open browsing but works equally well for private browsing or incognito mode.
Unlike other themes of Firefox that are static in nature, themes supported by “Quantum Lights” are very much dynamic. What does this mean? The themes change as the time for the day advances. As such, when you launch the Firefox web browser after installing the “Quantum Lights” theme, you will find the tabs appearing little yellow during the daytime while changing to bluish as the darkness sets in.
When you first add the extension to the Firefox browser, you can instantly notice the top part being displayed in a dynamically generated color gradient. All the colors appear quite bright and vibrant. The color adjusts to the sizes of the Firefox browser windows, accordingly.
Currently, there are no options available for the “Quantum Lights” theme. I hope that some get added, soon. Also, it would be useful if there are some options included to change the gradients but none of them should impact system resources. Nevertheless, the theme is very beautiful, and makes full use of the dynamic theming capabilities in Firefox Quantum. Go get it from mozilla.org.
UPDATE Aug 31, 2018: Seems the Quantum Lights theme for Firefox is no longer available on the Internet.
