Just to let you know, I've updated my theme to work with Omniweb 5.5: http://www.hicksdesign.co.uk/journal/tiger-theme-for-omniweb-55

I would love it if OmniWeb shipped with the Safari navigational buttons from the get-go. They look so much better with the unified appearance than do the standard OmniWeb buttons. And Mr. Hicks theme is very appreciated until the day when this hope becomes reality. :)

Yeah - anyone using the theme would be better off downloading and installing again. Revs is referring to the shadows that were at the bottom corners of the safari-esque buttons. Looks much smoother now!

However, I think Omnigroup are right not to ship with Safari style buttons, I think they need to have an identity of their own. Even though they're used elsewhere (such as in the finder), people would cry 'Safari Rip off'.

I do think they need to update what they've got though!

Personally, I like how the OW buttons look on the unified toolbar. Very simple and clean. The safari buttons add the extra boxes. I tried Jon's theme for a while, but I do like the clean buttons on the unified toolbar more.

I agree that an update would be nice, and I also agree that that oughtn´t mean looking like Safari. Blech!

So, now that I´ve agreed with just about everything Jon Hicks said (hey, I added a ¨blech¨ in there!) I´ll also point out that I don´t really care that much. Interfaces are one of my passions, and this one is fine, just a bit dated.
