This is a good vibrant skin except that the silver text does not show up too well, would have been nicer with gold me thinks.

Here, maybe this will help. I wish they would have a light pink choice on the text color with the skin maker, fuschia being the only pink toned option for text, or let us make our own choice of text color. The text colors don't always match the colors of the background images...

Sorry 'bout that!

Here is a new one with a lt. gold text, hope it works better for you! :)

I examined the contents of the skn file, calculated the relevant code that related to the text colour then modified the file directly. Some people may call it cracking, hacking or reverse engineering the code but it was done with the best intent. Apologies to Anderson if it violated any rules.

That is very smart. I will have to work on learning that one when I get time! I don't see why it should bother anyone, just changing the text color in a file... Sure doesn't bother me, and it was my file. Actually these files belong to everyone! Anything that makes using Avant Browser more pleasant to use for all, I am all for it!

It would really be great if we could get the skin maker to do more. Not just more control over the text color on the skin itself, but highlighting tabs, and the color of the menu backgrounds, etc...
We could really do a lot more then. I wonder if we could include 10-15 sets of icons, too?
Probably too much work...

But actually the skin maker is great just the way it is, makes Avant Browser much more customizable than any other browser. It has made me able to make browser skins for the first time. So that is definitely a good thing! Can't complain too much!

If anyone is wondering about that comment, I had previously PM'ed MagicStarER asking whether it was OK to modify her skin. Thank you MagicStarER for your permission and contributions. Awaiting Avant v12 to see what additions to customisations that will bring...

The font colour is only selectable from a drop-down list. For the progress bar there is a full colour dialog. Not sure about the old version...
And you're welcome - I hope your suggestion was implemented to your liking.
