    The Noia(extreme) theme for firefox still seems so much better.

    I rotate my Firefox Themes about every three days. Many good ones out there.

    That looks nice Lynchknot. I like the dark color.

    It appears, with few exception, that graphic artists appreciate simplicity and minimalism. I have noticed, upon posting in "art" boards and "tech" boards, that many "tech geeks" prefer more colors and require more visual cues for icons - to satisfy their preference.

    Yes, but I still prefer themes like Noia(extreme) or some other themes with bright colours. I don't find your theme's colour nice. Because its dark coloured, it looks the same as the grey sky when it's gonna rain. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I'm using windows classic to show what is skinned. You should know that minimize, maximize and close is skinned by your operating system, not by browser theme.

    for those who don't realize it, this is a modified emulation of Mac's Safari browser. This theme has evolved from a near identical emulation of Macintosh's Safari browser - http://www.apple.com/safari/

    You know, i'm not fishing for comments - especially negative. I'm making an announcment of work in progress and soon to be release. Why do you find it necessary to impose your preference on my thread? I could care less what you like. I have some 30 colorful themes to update but I like the plain minimalist themes at this time. I can make themes exactly like Noia - themes are very easy to make - it's finding icons that appeal to me that is important. I don't like cartoon icons. I've outgown childish type images I suppose.

    Noia is a great theme but it's not my preference and should not even be discussed on my thread. Your comments are off topic.

    If you don't have something nice or, at least, contructive to say - go away. Do you think your comments are going to somehow convert me to your way of thinking - your preference? What you are doing is antagonizing - and I do not appreciate it.

    This is one of my more colorful yet not cartoonish themes that have not been updated for Fx 1.0 yet - much more professional looking images

    and my gant theme that borders on "cartoonish" - well......it is therefore I don't like it much...http://home.comcast.net/~no404/gantsft.png

    Lynchknot,

    I'm giving it a go. I use the classic desktop in XP. I do try to keep the toolbar as small as possible.

    Any way to have the scroll bar turn blue as the other icons do?

    I like it!

    Lynchknot, it looks as if you are doing a very good job.
    It is good to see some talent.

    Ronjor please note:
    There will be scrollbars. The bookmark icon I see on your toolbar is not addressed (css) correctly - and it's designed for the bookmark toolbar as well.

    Thanks BigC - :)

    6. make new images for findbar
    7. make new images for statusbar
    8. fix progressmeter

    Do you mean back "history"? If you do then just right click the back/foward button for drop down history menu.
