the dll's in the download are x86. if you use x64 just use the images with nav button customizer
Updated 12/26: This has the light version toolbar fix for chrome/firefox, it also contains many minor updates but i can't remember them all. the file also includes a darkened transparent taskbar version that is VERY incomplete. with the holidays, finals, and some commissioned web design i've been far too busy to make a proper final version of this package but this should address most of the issues that have been brought to my attention. no monochrome versions yet. sorry. happy holidays custo fans!
Updated 11/18: added substyle dark explorer bar (works with Chrome and Firefox ) + lots of minor fixes. thanks to everyone reporting bugs and helping make this theme badass
Updated 11/17: shadowless frames, left/right taskbars, rounded bottoms
USE FIREFOX 7, 8, 9? TOOLBAR FIX
Updated 11/12: i remade the taskbar buttons to accommodate pinned apps and changed/skinned some things. keep the screenshots comming
Color scheme based on Google+
Design is inspired by the results of sorting the Windows XP category by Most Popular of all time.

This theme is a heavily modified Aero. You must get confirmation from me prior to releasing any themes built from or based on my design. Go crazy
How to Install & Use Custom 3rd Party Themes
Shell32.dll from bAero
Win 7 Nav Buttons Customizer
Windows 7 Start Orb Changer v4
(this isn't necessary, but if you want that super clean look use it)
PS: There are some elements that i intentionally ignored because i never actually see them in daily use, however there are probably a few little bugs, and some completely ignored sections that will need attention. Please bring to my attention any major issues via screenshot and i'll get it fixed.
Would love to see this ported to Windows 8/8.1 even 10.
Visible colors especially when using a HDPI LCD Display, I can actually see the work that I'm doing and reading... well within a virtualized Windows 7 machine using this theme, my Windows 8 theme cannot see a thing and colors are so washed out! I'd just wish I had this theme for Windows 8.1... hint hint wink wink poke poke.
It's a better design than you could ever make, and "when the majority never even used computers until they started making them ultra-over-easily" sooo you're claiming that you'd never use a computer unless it were super-duper easy like TOUCH? Oh nooo... go away! A UI that has absolutely no abnormal effects such as glows and shadows is the perfect UI, adding a bunch of fancy junk to eat up system resources like your current firefox is pathetic. Slim, unique, and straight-forward is the way to go... no hogwash bloated unessential bs.
I'd like to see this for Windows 8/8.1 even 10. :smile
Congrats on the DD!
Have a great day!
