Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Magnifique is a free theme manager application for Mac that allows you to easily create your own theme library and apply them with just a click of a button. Theme files have the ".mfq.plugin" file extension that designates them as files for Magnifique. This format is completely open. No encryption, compression, or anything is used to prevent you from seeing exactly what's going on. What you see inside a plugin is exactly what you get, which makes it easy to see what you are putting on your computer. And since this format is open, it is easier than ever before to create a theme package for Magnifique.


Magnifique has a built in theme downloads system that can list and easily download themes directly from our servers right onto your computer, without the usual hassle of using a web browser and manually installing themes. There are virtually no delays either, so you get access the moment a theme is released. You also get to see theme reviews and comments, and in most cases, a preview image, so you know exactly what you are downloading.

Key features of Magnifique includes

  • Added Theme Mixer feature.
  • Fixed case sensitivity issue with theme list.
  • Themes now alphabetically ordered.
  • Fixed downloads list repetition bug.
  • App now remembers position of split view.

To get started simply Download the Magnifique browser and apply it. You wouldn’t need to restart your machine once you apply a theme. Just a restart of the Finder and the dock will do the job for you.
