New Default Theme for Phoenix

Tuesday December 24th, 2002

Arvid Axelsson's Qute is now the default theme in Phoenix, replacing the previous Orbit-derived skin. The transition to the new theme is mostly complete but a few changes still need to be made. The new default theme isn't in the latest builds yet, but here's a screenshot of Qute in the most recent nightly to give you an idea of what it will look like. Follow the thread in the Phoenix Themes forum for more details.

Update! The latest Windows nightly now features the new default theme.

Another Update! The latest Linux builds now also feature Qute as the default theme.

#24 no common "Theme" in this theme!?

Although each individual icon looks good (i like colors and 3d effects), the icons don't seem to fit with each other. It is almost as if they took one best icon from ten different themes and made one theme (it's actually not as bad it i'm making it sound, but the discrepancy is there).

To me, it is most noticeable in the difference between the forward|back|stop buttons and the home button (circular/2D versus rectangular/3D)
