    back in Tiger i used Uno to give Safari a graphite progress bar instead of the default aqua blue one.

    alas Uno doesnt work in Leopard as its main purpose was to make Tiger have a unified interface which Leopard already has.

    so for all you graphite users out there i made a graphite progress bar for Safari which is much better than Uno's. to apply it follow these instructions.

    • download the attached zip file and unzip it
    • quit Safari
    • click "Go to Folder…" in Finder's Go menu or press "command-shift-G" while in the Finder and copy and paste this directory "/Applications/Safari.app/Contents/Resources" in
    • backup &/or trash the three .tif files by the same name as the attached files
    • drag the 3 .tif files from the folder you just unzipped into Safari's Resources folder
    • open Safari and the graphite progress bar should appear.

    oO thanks! I hope Apple implements the graphite progress bar natively though :(

    Seems the new Safari update made it revert back to the blue, so I thought I'd bring this thread back around.

    Yea, the 3.2 made the bar blue again so I had to search for this "fix" once more ;)

    I agree. There too much distracting crap in Safari 4's new UI.
    I miss the progress bar, want to get rid of top sites, and the stupid + at the end of the tab bar. It does'nt belong there. Please revert to the MacOS standard of UI design and don't alienate the people who made Apple what is is today. :(

    For now i'll revert to Safari 3.

    The only fix to bring it back is to restore the Safari.app file from a Time Machine backup if you had the beta installed. I did this and am using the beta now with tabs on top and the blue loading progress bar. Doing this I actually have both the Safari 4 beta and final user interface versions on my system. Just had to rename the Safari.app before I did the restore so it wouldn't overwrite the other one.

    I think I deleted my last time machine backup, can anyone post or send me the safari 4 beta .app? Any speed or stability advantages in the final .app that wouldnt work in the beta UI? (or are those elsewhere in the system and not in the .app file)

    I hope I don't have to install leopard on a blank HD, then install the safari 4 beta just to poach the .app file to do this... I have the installer, so that's better than nothing I guess, but what a hassle.
