i stumbled upon "dark theme material pro":

It looks a lot like the dark theme that comes built-in with the Brave browser. :Thmbsup:

I see we have a "brave" fan here!
Well, did download Brave to compare and its default dark, or dark theme from Chrome store or even Windows dark settings still not as nice.
The "Dark Material Pro" installed for Slimjet has greyish tone for inactive tabs, thus making the active one more noticeable.

Themes aren't everything, but when i find a nice one, i stick to it for a long time.
Slimjet's bookmark autohide and scroll through tabs with mouse just enhances this feature.

The brave theme just has the grey for the active tab, which I find noticeable enough.  I tried that dark material pro, and I see where it's the inverse of that.  But I can't read the downloads with that installed as easily.

But it's good that we have options so that everyone can get what they want!

@wraith808 - perfectly agree with the goodness of being able to choose what pleases us most.  :Thmbsup:

For the record:

Here is Vivaldi downloaded with Slimjet:

Here is Vivaldi downloaded with Brave:

Both have Dark Material Pro theme.

I mean in the bar at the bottom.  I'm not sure if SlimJet shows it's downloads in the bottom bar like Chrome and Brave, but when it shows down there, I can't read the text with Material Pro.

?
Thought my screenshot via Screenshot Captor wasn't that bad!

So it's not working for you - well, my Brave sync code isn't registering on their service, so i guess we're even!

VirusTotal extension is a good addition for (Firefox and) Slimjet (or Chrome based clones):

I don't use brave sync, or really _any_ sync.  And yeah, that screenshot illustrates what I meant; I didn't even realize that you had a download in the bar at the bottom; I thought you were talking about the popup!

Anesidora - Listen to Pandora, ad free, without having to have it open in a tab. (also features ability to download songs)

better-onetab - Temporarily store lists of links from your tabs. Good for research projects, during the link gathering and sorting stages.

I have a few that I keep all the time. I work in an IT company so I regularly need Grammarly for checking sentences and blogs grammar. I have a VPN extension as well, works like a charm. Buffer to schedule posts for my twitter and facebook account.
