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.

There are many people here complaining about the "drab gray." You all need to address your comments to Microsoft, attn: OS UI dept. We use the SYSTEM COLORS. We are not going to make our application flashy blue and orange and hope that we somehow start a new trend. We're just a browser; there's nothing so special about the app that we should make it look different from every other program.
