Aqua gone with Lion?

I sure hope so. Those ugly blue buttons/ scrollbars need to be put to sleep finally.

No evidence of this currently. Apple could make GUI changes though. Wouldn't mind something fresh, but I have no issues with the current theme. One change that has been noticed is that the title bar on windows is going away (or at least the developer has the choice) as can be seen from the App Store screen shots.

From the preview that Apple gave today, Aqua is still there. However, Lion is still a year away, meaning that things could change.

Actually, these were posted by @viticci on Twitter:

Any Aqua bars you saw were on the systems running Snow Leopard. Looks like Lion will offer the new scrollbars that auto hide away.

I like the design but not knowing if a page have more content doesn't look good.

What, half an inch lol?

Anyway, I wonder if they will be doing away with the blue buttons on dialogue boxes? I fail to see what they could replace the pulsing blue with

Seems like only yesterday Steve was talking about "the lovely new aqua interface" in the keynote for the Mac OSX Beta

Sounds like Aqua will get depreciated before it gets revamped.

As long as Finder remains in Lion and future releases I'll be happy. It is the trend now on PC, particularly with browsers, to replace the menubar with a dropdown menu which is most irritating. At least with Mac this irritation wont happen thanks to Finder which houses the menu items.

Finder is just an application to administer your files. The Menu Bar is there too if you are using another application, independent of Finder.
And I agree, that the Menu Bar in Windows seems to hide more and more.

As far as I know Aqua is gone. Some applications that will be bundled with Lion no longer have those blue push buttons, they are now textured gradient buttons. Unfortunately I cannot say where I found these changes.

Of course you can't.

Forgot to take a blurry photo in an elevator? :P

So how will you know if you a page has more content? With NYT it might be "obvious" but what about sites one's never visited before?

Just as long as I can still grab the scroll bar to move position. Scrolling long lists or big documents with finger flicks is still a pain.
