It uses mozilla specific properties (properties with -moz-prefix). In order to make it work in chrome it neets to be ported. Some -moz-prefixes can simply be replaced with -webkit- (like -moz-box-shadow and -moz-border-radius), others can simply be deleted (@-moz-document... {, don't forget the corresponding } at the end of the file) and some others I'd have to research myself on how to port.

Hi Andreas!

Nice work, but is there any chance you could make a Darker Theme for Google Web Search, KDE SC 4.4 style?

I tried editing your code with a darker set it on my own, but I lack the skills :-(

Only got half of it to work. Tried to make the certain links, bright gree, bright blue/turquoise.

Using Valacar's background, I could only get the background to work. Click on the link to see what i mean.

http://userstyles.org/styles/19745

Hoping you or anyone out there can get the Darker Themes to work on either Firefox 3 or Chrome?

Thanks so much!

Hey, I noticed a serious layout problem when logging in my GMail account: the layout is completely broken, if the custom theme is enabled :(
Is it possible to add a config value that disable/enable your theming for mail.google.com, so I can continue enjoying your awesome style?
Thanks !!

I was about to comment on this too. The gmail-problem exists only in 1.5.3. It worked fine in 1.5.2. Otherwise a great style!

A screenshot to show how it looks for me:

Todays version excludes Google Mail again and thereby fixes this issue.

I second the petition! Even the rendering of gmail.com is not right.

Apart from that I take the opportunity to thank you for this piece of software!

Here is a link to Google's main page in Chrome 5 http://www.imagebam.com/image/339fba81999203
There is also a problem with iGoogle http://www.imagebam.com/image/7d983a81999785
They look normal in Firefox.

Also in some pages the logo has white area around it. For example Google Calendar http://www.imagebam.com/image/3eb0a381999781
This appears in both browsers.

Anyway, congratulations for the nice work you have done.

I found a mistake on line 61 of 'Google Web Search - KDE SC 4.4, 2/2' causing the logo to somewhat appear twice.

http://i48.tinypic.com/dewxoy.jpg

On line 61 'height: 103px !important;' 103 should be 93.

Also, just in case Google decides to change the logo background image like they did yesterday for the Pac Man anniversary you should probably put 'background: none !important;' at line 22-23.
