Alexandrie, very smooth useable skin. Well done.


You do my favorite WB's. It is something in the way you do it... Seems they load easier and are a lot cleaner for some fashion. The rounded glass edge is done very well. This really shows up in Vista. But I do notice it in XP. The start button could use a little more brightness or a change in hue. The animation effect there does make it noticeable. But color and/or more brightness would be better.
As with the most of your skins also... I preferr not to use any transparency and blur settings. The default with no blur for any part makes it as it should be in my book. Smooth.../ clean and clear.
Your work is very much appreciated and I will always use your skins.
I rate them very highly. This one is a for sure 5+ skin.
Thank you again for sharing your work with us all.

Thank you Stardock. Thank you Alexandrie. This is a very very good skin. Got me off of Sirus so that is something right there.

As you say it is very clean and fast. This is a nice alternative. Very good for everyday use. Easy on the eyes and yes I do see a performance increase on the PC. Looks good on XP. This one could have easily been a Master Skin.

I managed to tweak one of WebGizmos tabbed docks to go with it. Can't live without a tabbed dock.

I will start by saying thank you Stardock for giving us a nice looking skin. I will admit, I was excited until I saw who made it, never been a huge fan of Alexandrie's stuff, call it personal preference. It does look nice though. Very usable and easy on the eyes. The only complaint/question I have is the same as many of the others. Where's the toolbar icons? I can see the argument, be happy with what you got because something is better than nothing, and I'm ok with that. I just have to wonder, as Stardock, your goal being to show off what your new program can do, I'm not seeing anything that I haven't seen a thousand times before, and it's missing a piece on top of that. Why would you leave out toolbar icons, but skin the rest of the elements? I just don't get it. I do have another question for someone. The mouseover for the all programs in the start menu isn't skinned either. I don't know if this is something difficult or what because I've never tried to do it, but I'm just wondering why half the skins I see have a graphic there and the other half don't. To me, this is something else that makes it look incomplete. I'm just really curious and confused on these couple points and it would be great if someone could explain this to me. Thanks

In this new age of premium skins, it is nice to see and much appreciated. Premium skins should be the exception and not the norm!


no doubt about that

and with more than 1/2 of the wb6/vista compatibles being offered as permium its nice to see otherwise. I used to be a full supporter of the master skin program, butit now seems we are getting short changed because of it. maybe its just m.

Using an image there leads to useabilty issues for those running non-english OS's.

This way, works for everyone.

Looks great. Being free, it looks a lot better than those 3.99 pay skins people are making. Never understood how a 3.99 skin is better than a free skin like this.

bashing a master skin in order to compliment this skin is not cool, bodean. i'm surprised you said that  

anyway, maybe certain individuals who complain about the vista skins being 'pay' skins will stop their whining now. this blind is truly great, in my opinion.

Great skin! ...but it has a problem with Firefox 3 Beta 2. I see only a grey window instead of the mouse right click men�. Could someone help me?
