Yowsa! It's beautiful. Can I suggest that you update your news (maybe you're doing that now), and also under OmniWeb 5, it seems that there's no separation between "Full Screen Preview" and "Download Latest Release", so it reads something like "Full Screen Preview Download Latest Release"... very confusing.

Can I report a bug? I noticed in the orbital variant the safri skin is weird. When a window is oppened, the stop button is square but if I touch anything, like lets say a bookmark, it reverts to its oval form.

After:


Just to let you know, it may just be me though.

yeah, interesting mine isn't doing that but the address link on safari is white and yours is correct in its black form following the tab color. i think some of this must be a shapeshifter prob. anybody have any ideas?

also, swiz you might want to put the translucent icon set as a good set to go with orbital. it looks great!

again great job... i really think this will be on my g5 for a while.

peace.

Sweet theme. I think this is an overlooked widget though:



Also the other widgets in that window look more oval than circular.

Again, excellent work.
We need less Democrats and Republicans, and more people that think for themselves.

Thank you Swiz. Oddly enough this is the only theme I can stand to work with 24/7.

Those cows won't know what hit 'em. They won't know what hit them even after it hits them, because they're cows.

if you are in a window where there are tabs, and that window isn't the frontmost window, the tab thats selected is the Cappuccino tab, not the Orbital tab. i'd give you a picture, but my hosting is down and i'm awaiting new hosting. also, in the small windows, the close, minimize, expand widgets look more oval than circular. also, i don't know if this is fix able or what, but in the Finder side bar, when something is selected, its the text turns to white, making it a little bit hard to read. again, i wish i could post pictures, but i cant.

other than those little bugs, its awesome. i love it. awesome job swiz

For some this may be a three months old thread, it isn't for me (new to OSX theming). I'm kind o' glad this subject came up.

My G4 iBook may be said to be white, but the inside panes are more... Cappucino - that's why the Orbital theme is there to stay for quite a while. I simply love it.
My desktop snapshot is at homepage.mac.com/gerritvanoppen > Persoonlijk.

I managed to restyle a few details using ThemePark ("Pink Panther" Help Button, Window Toolbar small widget). Pitty the Popup Buttons in Carbon app's are Cappucino style, not Orbital. Here's where my poor PhotoShop experience really lets me down...

Still, I enjoy this masterpiece. Thanks a lot, Swiz.
