Change color of tab bar in Google Chrome?

I'm using Google Chrome Version 51.0.2704.106 m on Windows 7. When I launched Chrome tonight the very top bar, where the 'new tab' button is located, is a bright blue. I hate this. I'd like to either change it back to what it was previous (a light grey I guess?) or at least set it to a lighter color via settings or extension or whatever. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

2-in-1: For the VERY thin-haired, extensions? Products?

I have very, very fine hair. Silky, almost baby-fine. My mother has been offering to get me high-end keratin extensions because she said there are areas where the hair is very sparse. I have heard only disastrous things about extensions, but am very open (hopeful even) to hearing otherwise. Can you give me feedback? Which methods were less damaging? Was it worth it? [more inside]

Looking for a user script to improve the tumblr dashboard: 5-6 columns?

I'm hoping to find a user script for Tumblr that will go from the default 1 column layout to something that has 5-6 columns to take advantage of my widescreen monitor. I've found a userscript that gets partway there ("minimal three column layout"), but it suppresses the Like & Repost buttons. I've tried modifying it to have 5 columns instead of three, but I don't know java for beans. Would someone in the hivemind be able to tweak this appropriately, or know another way to get a better layout?

Updo hairstyles that work with fine hair?

Looking for suggestions for tutorials on modern, easy, and soft-looking updo hairstyles. I've found plenty online but they are tailored for women with very thick hair-- but I have long straight hair that's very fine, and wouldn't work for most of those styles. Alternately (and it surprises even me that I'm asking this), are there clip-in or elastic-style hair extensions that you could recommend to help add some thickness to pull off a pretty updo?

Internet explorer development

I've got some JavaScript I want to turn into an extension (plug-in?) so it will always run for certain webpages for Internet Explorer, but because I've been using Chrome/Firefox for years, I don't know what search terms to use. Do you know of a simple how to resource? Grease monkey like alternatives aren't an option for me.

Back off, Zuckerberg.

I hate intrusive facebook. My favorite facebook blocker is 3 versions of firefox behind and doesn't appear to be actively updated anymore. What's more, with the latest redesign, FB has a new social plugin thing on other sites that I can't figure out how to block. What's the best way to keep facebook and its assorted APIs, plugins, sniffers, trackers and malware on its own damn webpage?

I have fine, thin hair (not thinning, just thin) and I want more. I am female, have almost shoulder length hair and was thinking about extensions.
