Feature Request v2 - appearance and name?
« on: July 12, 2005, 10:21:05 PM »
i generally LOATHE skins..
but if i can keep the normal appearance absolutely unchanged and uncompromised by default, and if the memory/cpu hit is minimal,
i am open to the idea of adding some optional skinning modes, maybe.

i'm also open to the possibility of a name change, though it would be nice to keep it somewhat the same, so that it was still recognizable.

find and run sounds good to me, even in an anthropic context - you find something and then you run about. sounds like a fun game.

Skins?? On an app like this??  Could be that I generally care more about functionality than appearance, but I dont think skin support is worthwhile for FindRun.  If it stayed OPEN all the time, I could maybe see the use... but not for a minimalistic program designed to stay tucked away until a flash of urgency calls it forth.

well i tend to agree..
rest assured no skin support will be added until all other features are implemented.. it's just an idea i wanted to throw open for discussion to get an idea of how many people would like such a thing, and it would only be implemented if it could be done without impacting performance, and as a completely optional feature, etc.

the reason i have become more open to the idea is that while working on the Cheat Sheeter app, i used this excellent free, well known toolbar component toolbar2k, and its has a completely native win feel, but does support optional skins, so i realize skins can be added in a way that will not compromise the ability to run the program in plain normal windows mode for those of us that prefer that.
