This is a classy, finely textured, subtle theme that never clashes with or distracts from browser pages. It also makes all icons and labels quite readable - notably in the FIND bar (which is nearly impossible to read in some other themes). Plus, the shade of the FIND bar and its labels nicely matches the rest of the theme (unlike so many other "incomplete" themes). Thanks for designing this for us, Hipokamp. @MEURT!: All background tab labels and "X"s stay very clear, tho' it's true the b.g. tabs themselves become transparent (not interrupting the the nice uniform look of brushed metal). Foreground tab is lighter, very distinct.
I like the level of darkness of this solid theme a lot. It also interacts well with the Tab Counter extension and the Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar extension. Both have gotten messed up with other themes, so this one's a winner. (You know I'm right because there are no misspellings or grammatical errors in my review!)
