We had planned to have as many versions as possible on the download site, but so far that hasn't happened. Does anyone have the older versions? Particularly helpful would be the one that converted skins to the version that first introduced the compact style. That is the big sticking point between the older and newer skins as the interface changed completely. I find it interesting that they still work in the browser at all.

Something like " Blue Dot " but in a glossy stile. Am I right.
Not really, I don't like if all icons look the 'same'.

Perhaps you could just change few default icons from this skin, if possible. And don't care about the "fading" problem, I know it's not perfect, I think it cannot be.

BTW, my toolbars look like this:

---title bar---

---button bar---address bar---search bar---

---bookmarks bar---menu bar---

---tab bar row 1---

---tab bar row 2---

---tab bar row 3---

...

---status bar---
Ok. Got the picture :) I Think.

Something like this with status in buttom.

BTW.

We can do it together. I modify, upload pictures, you coment and
correct.

My first sugestion is we call the skin for " Dreamers Ie7" with credit to
Nederpietos.

When I need your advice or aprovel I will start a tread called Dreamers Ie7 in this forum. :)

If you have to tried the skin out before comments I will upload it as a beta 1 and sofort, untill we are finished.

Ok?

Almost, no toolbar in the second row, most "system" buttons are disabled, other are next to menu, also few menu items are disabled and I don't have any labels at search buttons. ...And the title bar is black, with the vista buttons. :)

I have some questions.

1. ****?? Is that my blue line "Avant Browser" in the top? If it is,
we dont count that from now on.
2. Its not so much how many icons you have displayed , as where you
have your searchbar and adressbar and Big Icons. ( Bar 1, Bar 2 and so on.
3. Do you like blue folders, or would you stay with the default yellow one.
Image

In this screenshot I have big icons, adressbar and searchbar in bar1.
Menu and bookmarks + theese windowtabs to the right in bar 2( Cant remember what they are called)
And windowtabs in bar3.
Are we getting there? :)

Just a closer look at the blue folders.

1. Yes.

2. Yes, I know, it's just large buttons in the first row, Booksmark bar in second and then tabs, I have lot of tab rows, it doesn't look perfect, also if I use small buttons, then it's even worse.

3. I'll reply in the other topic.
