Artist's Note

This isn't final, theres a suite being made, and more colour options in the works, I just need to make this as perfect as possible first, so help me do that. All bugs and suggestions welcomed. 3 font options, hopefully pleasing as many people as possible.

It's turning out great. :) Such a developed skin from an XP skin base, great as always.

Love this -- especially the titlebar gradient. The things I think can be improved are the taskbar, the scrollbar, and the tabs. The taskbar buttons aren't vertically aligned, and I think the taskbar button hover state should not look like the pressed state. The scrollbar is hard to see when juxtaposed with something white, and the absence of arrow buttons makes it hard to navigate through open and save dialogs. The only thing about the tabs are the hover brackets. One alternative you might consider is a silver gradient.

Other than that, it looks really, really great, smooth, and useable. Good job.

ill get started on those, do you think a lighter substyle would work too? this style is mostly 34, 34, 34, i was thinking maybe 50,50,50 or should i go lighter?

You could try, but I think you might lose some of the style's richness. You might also find that the gold accent does not look as good with a lighter shade of gray.

What about the tabs in the left side? I see it in your others skins.

I love the tabs on the left side...how did you do that?

I love this VS. I used it in a recent screenshot (29.09.2008). I can't wait for the release. I'm curious how you got FFox to look like that (with the location bar) and which Styler toolbar are you using? Thanks again.
