How to Change a Safari Browser Theme

By Jason Spidle

Safari is the default web browser for the Mac operating system. As with most Mac applications, Safari does not include support for themes and the user interface can only be changed when making systemwide theme changes. However, that does not mean you cannot change the look and feel of Safari. Thanks to a few Safari extensions, the standard Safari browser theme can be changed to any number of pre-designated themes.
