This theme, as you can see, is a compact and minimalistic theme.
Why minimalism?
I want to make this point clear. This theme (except for scrollbars/progressbars which work perfectly in all programs i've used) uses murrine engine, and therefore has all the capabilities and works whenever murrine works. So, its not lacking of features nor effects nor anything, it just looks simple!. Its very important the choice of an engine when developing any theme. I bet anyone can make an EXTREMELLY NICE LOOKING theme using pixmap engine, but pixmap engine its not consistent as murrine or other engines, so that's why i decided to choose murrine.

If you take a look at the screenshots the first thing that will take your attention are the progressbars and the ranges. This is important! In a movie/music player the range that indicates the position of the file you are reproducing is one of the most important stuff (the others being toolbar buttons and that's upto your choice of a icon-theme to make them contrast!). Also, the same happens with progressbars when downloading stuff or doing file operations.

If you erase that part of the screenshot, and look at the tabs (notebooks) you can see that you can easily tell what is the active tab and what are the inactive ones and this is very important to keep in mind.

Buttons, combos, etc. If your monitor is setting properly (be carefull) you will be able to see them at once, besides they are more compact than in other themes.

Scrollbars... i don't use them, but i put some effort and they look consistent. They are small, really, so this can be a problem for a lot of users. But... there is no universal theme and this one is no exception! If someone want larger/more accesible scrollbars.. well, just use murrine engine and it will be consistent (i promise!)

So... that's it. :)

From what I saw in the screenshots, the theme looks great. But, when I click on the Download button, it redirects me to Murrina Compact. Is this on purpose? The theme isn't available for download yet?

What engine is this? Rezlooks? Pixmap?

Sorry, I'm too lazy to look in the gtkrc file for myself.

he says "murrina gaia" in the theme description, so I guess it use murrina engine, maybe the svn version.

The progressbar and the scrollbar use pixmap engine, the rest is murrine engine
