Is someone working on a Google Chrome Skin? Could someone skilled in skin making do one for those of us, who do not know how to do it?
Thanks in advance.

There really isn't a way to skin Avant or Orca to look like Chrome. Im sorry to say.

Well, someone could skin the icons to look like chromes and the background color.

I guess they could.. but there really isn't that many icons in Chrome to skin.. and I believe I've seen a skin somewhere with that color background.. I guess I just took his request as in we can't make Avant look like Chrome in any real way.

Thanks guys for stepping in.
Yes, I am just looking for a skin... that is all.

Another problem: I can't download anything with Avant anymore since I installed Win 7 with IE8 RC1. But I can download from IE8. Did someone noticed the same problem? What is going on here?
Regards

Well, the update that Win7 got for IE didnt upgrade it to RC1 it just gave it some security fixes. Win7 won't get RC1 unil the official RC for Win 7 in April. Unless you have a build of Win7 that is newer than 7000. That probably has a newer version of IE included with it. But, I have had this problem before. I couldn't fix it. I just waited for the next build of IE8.

Hi Statm1
Thanks for sharing your info. I am on Win 7022 who has IE8 RC1. That's when the problema appeared. By the way the same problem is occuring with Avant Browser... I am wondering if this is a 'stupid' strategy from Microsoft to prevente people from using IE clones (which by the way are showing the way in the Browser future)

Technically 7022 does not have the released version of RC1 in it either. If you look at when 7022 was compiled then it shows that it was around the same time that the build I was using came out that had the problem. My guess is that you would need to use a build of Win7 that got compiled fairly recently to get a the full release of RC1 included with it. Thats why I suggested you wait for the official RC of Win7 to come out because it won't have these problems. The download problem does not happen in the full release of the RC1 in Vista.

The reason why it says release candidate in the about box of the build of IE that comes with 7022, is because they had started working on the RC by then and since 7022 was a leaked build they never meant for people outside of the company to use it, since it was an incomplete build.

ok. Thanks for the explanation. I just wonder if there is something we could do to get Maxthon full functional with the actual IE8 beta. I don't wan't to give up using Maxthon. There are lots of features (like the URL shortcuts) that IE does not have.
The Maxthon Team Has indeed contributed with a great browser.
Thanks and Regards,

Probably something you should post on their forums and see what they say.

Ive been running Windows 7 on 2 computers for a while.
Both running Orca and Avant, I havent come across any of the problems youve had.
I think something else is wrong with your setup.

Can I ask a question? Does the skin will slow down the speed of the Chrome?

Do you refer to the chrome browser itself or the chrome engine in Avant browser?
