    i like the new rounded corner of the menu's and the transluceny but i'm a little annoyed by it's brightness.

    i'd rather have the menu's be the way the dark-grey-transparent quicklook window frame or the dock icon/app-name "bubble" is.

    did anyone find out yet where the code for that part is?
    previously someone found out how to change the menubar and dock input/ settings. so menu's shouldn't be far away from that, right?

    dude hes talking about the menus! pfft...

    you could always disable quartz extreme with quartz debug found in the developer tools. it makes the menus look like tiger's but then you cant take advantage of leopard's new core animation.

    Opps, sorry about that. Man, seriously need to catch up on my sleep now.

    But now that you mention it, here's a tad wee note about disabling quartz extreme from another thread...

    But one user DOES NOT RECOMMEND this...!

    Sorry to burst your bubble. :p

    How about we all cut the bitching eh? If you have nothing constructive to say about the OP's problem, don't post in the thread!

    I'm also interested in amending the way the menus behave if anyone finds a solution. Leopard is in need of some extra GUI adjustment sliders IMO.

    Watch the language, you! :p I just thought this was another one of those annoying duplicate threads, but then realized it was a misunderstanding. I already apologized for getting things mixed up and corrected myself. I'm an advocate for more GUI customization as well.

    i wouldn't want to disable quartz but rather get the menu's to be the darker transparent grey look that is in quicklook or 2d-dock.

    One solution is to edit your background and have a white rectangle covering the region that the menubar sits upon.

    sorry i think you're misunderstanding me. i'm not speaking of the menubar or dock but the menu's itself (when you select "file", "edit", etc. from menubar or bookmarks bar in safari)
