It is 8.5, but I've not sorted out my toolbars yet - 'fraid I'm one of those migrators from Firefox, so I have to make Opera look like FF before I feel entirely comfortable.  I've already done that on my main machine, but not got around to doing it on the other.  You're right: 39 is quite nice...

Screenshot shows problems when window resizing is turned on (with transparency on Win2K), it doesn't matter which skin. The bottom section fails to get skinned. If you focus away and back it recovers, but resizing can make it worse (see below post):

iTunes2 is nice and sleek - thanks, nontroppo (and I've fixed OPera the way I like it now, so thanks for that, too).

what about the table would you like to customize? background image or color? font size/color/style? i can probably add that myself manually..
Forget it. It's not your fault. Windowblinds recognizes the table and skins it itself along with the statusbar.

BTW: Could we get rid of the status bar on the main FARR window. In the preferences window it makes perfectly sense to have a status bar that shows informations about the different options, but in the main window I don't need a statusbar that tells me "Wellcome master" or informs me that I can right-click an entry. I think getting rid of the status bar would make FARR look better.

thanks nontroppo,

itunes2 has a really nice slim titlebar (statusbar is still too tall here on my machine at least - any chance of getting that fixed? and can we rename it "compactitunes"?).

now what's this about the graphics bug - i don't see it here..  does it happen with every skin? only when transparency is enabled? only when autoshrink is enabled?

anyone else have that bug?

To make the status bar skinneier, I'll have to cut the rounded bottom corner probably, I'll give it another hack at.

The bug only happens on Win2K with transparency enabled. Happens with any skin, but I think I triggered it once just by resize.
