This theme is great! The dancing hula girls on the status bar is perfect. Shouldn't the scroll bars be bamboo, not black on black though?
Well interesting, but the colors are very strong and they do not combine :(
Bem interessante, mas as cores são muito fortes e não combinam :(
jejejeje un tema muy loco me gusta la combinacion de colores cuandop carga la internet muy interezante. me encanta
the text is way to big for me and i had to remove some of my main buttons (like back and forward) just to fit the entire button row in.
the rainbow colors are way to glaring!
having a font that not everyone would have on their computers and they having them go to another site to download the font just to use this theme is just not a good idea....
I for one am removing this theme and hope that your tone it down a bit...
make the icons a bit smaller and tone down the colors!
I am trying to install this theme. it will not even down load nor will any others. i get a download error on any theme i try
Finally, I can see the print! Thanks!
I really was surprised how much I respond to the design.
It brings out a smile to see the rainbows of colors and it is well designed.
Love the color combinations.
I like your theme so much, I registered in order to post this review/THANK YOU! It is gorgeous, easy to use, love the big font that shows up, EXCELLENT! Thank you again!
I haven\'t tried Hawaii yet (still looking; just discovered this). I have to correct the \"red hibiscus is Hawaii\'s state flower\". The state flower is Hibiscus brackenridgei which is an endemic hibiscus to Hawaii. The red hibiscus (which often represents Hawaii)is Hibiscus sinensis-rosa (doing this off the top of my head, could be H. sinensis) and is from China. Not saying that I disagree with using the red hibiscus, just be aware that it is NOT the state flower. I\'d prefer a red `ohia, but most people who don\'t live here aren\'t familiar with it.\r\n\r\nJan McEwen\r\nHawaii horticulturist
I do not think I have ever stated anything about state flower in my descriptions of the theme.
I remember & see that I state:
The popups, dropdowns, & backgrounds have native endangered plants, animals, & the Hawaiian happy face spider.
The red hibiscus/kokia images I used are extremely rare indigenous endemic Hawaiian Hibiscus species.
The yellow state flower "Hibiscus brackenridgei Gray ssp. mokuleianus"[Ma`o hau hele] is already in the theme & is shown to the left of the Hawaiian coot(Alae ke'oke'o ) & above the Hawaiian crow(Alala).
[5 populations with a total of 100-300 plants]
The three red Hibiscus species depicted in the theme are Hawaiian:
1.) Hibiscus clayi
top row far right(to the left of the baby turtle(honu) image.)
[Kaua`i-Nounou Mountains, 1 population, 4 plants]
2.)2 images below the clayi is the "Kokia kauaiensis"
[I especially love this one & have spent many many hours with them in person. :)]
[6 populations totaling less than 100 individuals ]
3.)Just above the Pueo(indienous Hawaiian owl) is the "Kokia cookei".
[Kokia cookei is considered one of the rarest and most endangered plant species in the world. In 1910, a single living tree was discovered
within the general area of the initial sighting and may in fact, have been one of the
original trees. In 1915, this last remaining wild specimen was found in extremely poor
condition though a few seeds were found and collected. Kokia cookei became extirpated
from the wild in 1918. Seeds from this collection produced only one seedling that survived past 1933. This one remaining seedling was planted at a Kauluwai residence on Moloka‘i, and produced over 130 seedlings though none of these plants have persisted. In the late 1950ʹs, the single plant at Kauluwai, Moloka‘i died and it was presumed
extinct. In 1970, a single plant of the species was discovered at the Moloka‘i residence,
probably a surviving relict of the previous cultivated plant. But in 1978, a fire destroyed
the last remaining rooted plant of Kokia cookei. Fortunately, before it was destroyed, a
branch was removed and later grafted onto a related species at the Waimea Arboretum.
Currently, Kokia cookei exists as approximately 23 grafted plants.]
I hope you now see that the red hibiscus images in the theme are all Ma'oli of Hawaii.(they are not Chinese or from anywhere other than the island paradise known as Haw(v)ai'i.
I am very familiar with & did not use the Metrosideros polymorpha (ohi'a lehua) as it is not endangered & exist in abundance.
(the theme is about rare & endangered Hawaiian ma'oli)
[Metrosideros polymorpha(ohia) is the most common native tree in the Hawaiian Islands]
I hope you enjoy the theme.
I have personally met many of these species in the wild.
I placed the Hawaiian coot(Alae ke'oke'o) in the theme as I once cared for & fed one for more than 2 months, as she recovered from a broken leg it got from a shallow stream landing.
(I cared for her 24/7 & only spoke her language to & around her. I also showed her to flee from cats as well as other humans :) .
*the state representatives told me to leave her to die(when I sough help for her injury), as there are no programs or money for her kind to rehabilitate & care for her kind.[***She did not die, she healed nicely.]
Alot different from the streamline look of browsers. Very creative and took some thought and time in developing this unique look. Would have rated a 10 but agreed with another review. Graphics for reloading, stop loading, and home buttons need to be worked on. Much too dark and not consistent...maybe butterflies (graphic/no photo image) and a red hibiscus (HI state flower) for 'home', (again graphic/no photo image)
I just discovered this theme and downloaded it. There are a lot of things I like about it, especially the thatched background...cool! I have just a couple suggestions if the developer is open to some tweaking. I wish the icons could be made brighter so they're easier to see. Also, in lieu of the rainbow effect, perhaps a solid color of turquoise could be used to simulate the shimmering color of Hawaiian waters? The rainbow effect just seems a bit garish to me. But overall, congrats on creating a cool, unique theme.
I just downloaded it today, I love the bright colors it is a pleasure to use and so far is working great, thank you.
Aloha Puffmike. I wanted very much to love your new Hawaiian theme but I feel like the colors you use are too dark and make it difficult to see things that are easier to see on a lighter background. I had no problems with the way things worked, but esthetically, it was just too somber for me.
Overall, this theme is just beautiful - your effort reflects your hard work. 2 things keep me from giving this theme a 10, or using it all the time.
1) There is no search engine bar and I use it a lot.
2) When closing a tab or screen, the result is jerky - there's a delay when clicking out of the screen.
Thank you(mahalo) for your kind review Dovelady.
1.)Click the surfboard to access the search engines list.
* A hidden surfer animation is there as well ;)
2.)I do not experience jerkiness or delays when closing tabs or screens. I wish I did so that I could more easily figure out what is causing what you are experiencing.(I shall inspect the code, to see if I can solve your issue.)
