Its awesome! As stable as 'Fox or 'Mino, but it looks hella cool, and I dunno, I like the lil' icon too.

Its cute, and functional. Me loves Shiira. Shiira cool!

Here's a screenshot of the icon set, and theme I have chosen: (Already built-in, no hunting down for a half decent theme, unlike 'Fox and co)

It does have a real nice look to it. Have you run into any particular limitations as compared to the better known browsers that you consider drawbacks? BTW, how did you get the green coloring in the iTunes windows?

None. Drawbacks in Safari were that it was slow, and didn't load some webpages (more annoyingly, my router page). Bonusus were, it looked good, and didn't take up much system resources. It tied in nicely with the other iApps.

Drawbacks for all other common known (Fox, Camino) were that they were damn ugly, and even with themes they still, to me, didn't look 'right'. I also hated the way Tabs were organised in both apps, and it just felt too 'fiddly' to get right.

Shiira looks awesome. I have it set to Aqua icons, the square ones, with the brushed metal look - which can all be set from the Prefs, no downloading etc. I also made the icons smaller by right-clicking the icon bar as it looks more 'refined'. The tabs are organised in the same way as Safari by default, but you can customise them as to how you want them opened/organised. Its a brilliant app, and I'm glad its Uni. to run on my MB when I get it :D

I only found this out myself yesterday! Its actually REALLY simple! You can either make your own Colourscheme, by downloading ThemePark, although its only a trial and costs $20.

Or you can download an iTunes '.rsrc' file (basically, its holds all the graphics that make up the look of iTunes). You back up your old one, and drag the new one into the correct folder, and voila, new colour.

You can customise LCD colour, scroll colour, button colour, everything, with ThemePark. Its brilliant! All my information is from Markkk! He's a genius! PM me if you want exact info. on what to do. :)

I tweaked Camino to look as close to your screenshot as possible.
Do you still think it looks damn ugly? ;)

I love shiira, but the site hasn't been updated in months... and the forum on their page has been defaced by ads. I fear for Shiira's future! Does anyone know what is going on with the development?

I used Shiira extensively since it was in .6 dev. I loved it, it was so much faster than Safari. However, in the recent past I switched to Camino because Shiira didn't keep my passwords all too well and other reasons I don't recall. I may pick it back up again some day, I love switching browsers.

How do you get Camino to look like that?

I love Shiira. I like the tabs expose & then loading ... turn page thingy.



THAT thingy. It's cool, but only when you have a fast internet connection & computer.
