suggestion/Wish minimal gui
« on: December 15, 2011, 04:25:25 AM »
I would love the option to not have the title bar above the input box or the two icons to the side of it (Help and Options)
I like a more minimal look
I tried the slender farr skin but the input box would flicker noticably when I was inputting text.
To me FARR is better in operations to the other good ones I tried like, Executor, Keybreeze and Launchy
but it is least attractive  :(

you can hide the icons, just drag from the end of the search bar rightward until they dissapear.

Try choosing a custom search background color with slenderFarr skin. That removed the flickering for me.
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

Hey that's a great tip - it works for me too - much happier now :)
