    I like this one, I like it alot.
    I dont play Guild Wars, I just like dragons and the murky green look
    I like it so much I made some simple scroll bars for it....
    Scroll Bars - Guild Wars.crx
    ...if you like this kinda thing tho your better off putting the code in the custom.css file in you User StyleSheets directroy because then it affects all pages, whereas the extension way wont do the ntp and some other pages.
    Heres the code to put in the file.....
    Code:
    ::-webkit-scrollbar {
        height: 12px;
    width: 12px;
    background: #000;
        }
     
    ::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb {
        background: #393812;
           -webkit-border-radius: 1ex;
          -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
    }
    ::-webkit-scrollbar-corner {
        background: #000;
    }
    ....now to see if it makes chrome unstable in the past doing this would cause crashs on some sites....so far so good

    oh and if you want some constructive criticism (hope thats what it is)...the pic is a little small for my screen on the height side of things, think it would look a little better if it faded to black going up instead of the sudden cutoff to black

    Custom scrollbars with CSS... didn't realize you could add those to a theme... that changes a lot. I'll have to spend some time researching Webkit a little. As far as the ntp background image, I'll see what I can do about having it fade to black instead of trying to fade into the toolbar image. My monitor only displays at 1024x768 so I don't get the funny display like you do. I appreciate you letting me know about the bugs, eventually I'll have all the sizes figured out and this won't happen... I'll have a new version uploaded in a little while.

    You cant add them to a theme unfortunately as theres no way to attach the css to the theme.
    You can either make an extension that is just a css file that gets injected into every page (except ntp and gallery) as above, or you can add it to the custom.css file which is the better option but I dont know of a way it can be automatically installed, you have to do it by hand. But the custom.css affects the ntp which is cool, you can even do more there....
    add this to your custom.css file and check the ntp....
    Code:
    body>div#main #recently-closed {
      white-space: nowrap;
      overflow-x: hidden;
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(rgba( 0, 0, 0, 0)),to(rgba(64,64,64,0.5)));
    }
    
    body>div#main .thumbnail-container {
      opacity: 0.33;
    }
    body>div#main .thumbnail-container:hover {
      opacity: 1;
    }
    body>div#main  .attribution{
      opacity: 0.3;
    }
    body>div#main{
    background-image:url('') !important;
    }
    body>div#main #top-bar{
    opacity: 0.0;
    }

    Ahh, so you can't add the custom scrollbars to the theme... I really hope that Google adds more UI features that are skinnable (without redoing the whole thing each version). It would be sweet to be able to change the colors and graphics of the scroll bars in the manifest... *dreams more*

    i'm hip to this theme also but question....how'd you get the url bar icons reversed (ie. star on right, search on left) ?
    For the record: Hello Kitty and Naruto Themes are the suck .

    If I remember right your on the stable channel?...well Im on dev and thats what it looks like now.
    They removed the go button altogether (which i frikn hate). Moved the star to the right as a page action and put some stupid icon to represent http,https,etc...but what I hate about that change is now you click the star to bookmark, but you cant drag the star to bookmark you have to drag that stupid new icon instead (I just cant see how its a good idea to share the bookmark functionality between two icons?????)
    And if you really want to see into the future then look at this.....

    ...notice the buttons are flat? well thats not an option. Even if your theme has a button_background it will completely ignore it.
    If you want to check this out then install the canary build.....
    http://tools.google.com/dlpage/chromesxs/eula.html
    ....you can install this along side any of the other channels....so you can have canary and stable running separate from each other

    Hearing that makes me very sad... They need to add more things that can be skinned, not the other way around. Hopefully enough people will say something about it and they'll revert back or something.
