    I'm one of idol Piolo este Arel's interface disciple. He introduced this app to us-

    ShapeShifter 1.2

    ShapeShifter is a revolutionary new product that lets you change the overall appearance of your Mac using 'themes'. We're not talking about just desktop backgrounds and icons here, we're talking about everything - the look of windows, menus, apps, buttons, absolutely everything. You don't wear the same clothes everyday, your house doesn't look exactly like your neighbor's - why should the computing interface you use everyday be any different. You personalize your physical workspace to suit your tastes and whims, so why not your Mac?

    This is the aluminum alloy theme that I am currently using, downloadable thru
    Max Themes

    Best to try it, I'm still on 1.1 running OS 10.32- haven't upgraded to 10.33 since my Pro Tools software can't run on that yet.

    Although logically 1.2 should be for the newer 10.33 Panther updated OS.

    What a coincidence Ditoy! I'm using Shapeshifter and the exact same theme on my Powerbook! I love the toxic green color! Very slick! :)

    This app is really nifty!

    I installed the Aluminum Alloy as well, but was wondering how to change the color. Its currently in orange right now but I want to see how the other colors (Toxic green?) look like on my desktop.

    Any tips?

    Just double click the arrow on the left side of the theme name and click "Apply Selected" on the lower right side of the shapeshifter preference. hope this helps.

    Btw... i really like the animation on safari when loading a site and when your using tab browsing. Im also using the toxic green color... really cool.

    Uuuy! Got it! Thanks for the tip, mykmarinas!

    I tried it and switched to toxic green! Very wicked, indeed! Tomorrow I'll try the blue one...
