What is Silicon?
is a premium theme for Vanilla 2 forums. Silicon uses a minimalist approach based on a strong emphasis on user photos, simple icons, and large easy-to-read text. Silicon is fully responsive
and features a soothing deep-blue color scheme and a prominent display of categories. It also comes included with three additional color schemes: Silicon Red, Silicon Green, and Silicon Purple!
Silicon uses a CSS feature called @font-face
combined with the power of Font Awesome
to render all of its icons as text (“font icons”) rather than images, which improves page load-time. Because the icons can be changed just by modifying the CSS, this also makes it easier for you to customize Silicon to your liking, no need for any expensive image editing tools!

Silicon is compatible with a wide variety of browsers including Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, and IE, and is designed to work with the latest version of Vanilla 2.1
! A legacy version of Silicon is also included for Vanilla 2.0.18 compatibility.
