    Just thought I'd post this for those that do not know how to do this, I know Safari Enhancer will do this but it is not guaranteed to work for v67. So here is how to do it manually.

    This info is from a user at macosxhints.com, so full credit to them:
    This is very easy to do and takes no more than a min or two, and IMO Safari looks much better like it.

    edit: After contacting the author of Safari Enhancer, they have updated it to work with v67. You can download it here. With this you can add/remove brushed metal, as well as various other things, full info can be found here.

    Nice, is there any way to do this without the dev tools though?

    My CD-ROM busted and I've neglected to install them beforehand.[​IMG]

    And that reminds me, I've got a Quicktime hint I've been meaning to post.....

    You could always try Metallifizer as it seems to do the same thing.

    Here's a screenie for your viewing pleasure:

    I think I prefer the metal...anyway, if you don't have the dev tools, you can always download them from apple at reeaally good speeds if you got broadband...

    themes

    or get some themes, and Duality, or Themechanger.

    actually kinda liking metal now, got a metal theme, even the Menu bar is metal. Used Photostickies to make a metal desktop even, but its not convenient. Anythoughts on an easy metal desktop background?

    First of all, what's with the gigantic pictures here?

    Second, I'd be careful with Duality if I were you. It's been the ruin of several systems. Just a warning, your results may vary.

    Regards,
    Gus
