Dark Transparent Google Chrome by cathos13 Dark Transparent Google Chrome by cathos13
I was frustrated, unable to find a transparent dark theme of google chrome, so I made one. I hope you enjoy it. If you want to make your own chrome themes, go ahead and download mine, change the file extension to *.zip, unarchive using 7zip or something similar, and mess with the images and the manifest file (which is just a text file, I opened it using notepad GNU). Or, you can follow the tutorial at [link]. I hope you have fun, and remember not to change the tint values above 1. they aren't color values. This is a variation of ~Pigletiger's ShinyWhite for Google Chrome.

Transparency doesn't work, but I don't care about that. The theme is great, and I appreciate your work.

Thanks for your work! This comes as a great relief to my eyes as I had a temporary lapse in judgement and decided to change my theme, ended up not liking it, and had forgotten where I had stashed the old crx file.

Any idea on how to make transparent or change the color of the white line below the bookmarks bar and above the downloads popup? Screenshot: [link]

Nice! I just updated to version 10 (probably does it on other versions as well not sure). Installed your theme and it adopted my installed visual style for borders and buttons. Like it a lot. Was looking for something dark with opaque tabs that would match my glass visual style "Daydream". Great work.

Sorry never mind. It's caused by the Win7 theme I am using.

This works a treat with the standard themes :)


Great work :)

Hi

This looks gorgeous thankyou :)

But I need to ask, has something changed sine you made this?

It doesn't work for me, the Tabs are transparent, but it looks like chrome has new layers that aren't being made transparent. I can't seen to add an image of it so I will try to describe it.

The row that contains tabs has a thin (about 10px) white line, and ontop of that is all dark grey, and not see-through. The tabs themselves (except the current one) are transparent as I can see the line and the grey through them. but the window frame is not transparent at all.

I am using Chrome 8.0.552.215

Can anyone else get this work with the latest build?

Regards

thanks for the theme! Also, could you tell me how you were able to set-up your bookmark bar like that (ie. with some icons and some icon/titles)?

just delete the text from the bookmark titles. It works well when there are icons.

Question, this really work on XP, whenever a transparent theme for chrome goes out use the resources from aero for vista and seven & on XP just seem like nothing
Reply
:iconcathos13:
cathos13 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2010
most applications use vista and 7's built-in aero to achieve a transparent window chrome, however, xp doesn't have aero, and chrome doesn't bother to take the system resources to provide a different transparency engine.

I guess your theme matches black visual styles better than my original. You removed the shininess though - :cry:.

Oh, and you said you couldn't find a transparent dark theme for Chrome - a quick google was all you needed.

:iconcathos13:
cathos13 Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
Also, how does the 'shininess' work? It took a lot of trial and error to figure out how to tint the controls, and I never could get the edging to fade quite the same.

:iconpigletiger:
Pigletiger Featured By Owner May 29, 2010
There aren't any tint controls for the tabs. Some of the themes here use images on the tabs, so I used a shiny image I made in Photoshop.

:iconcathos13:
cathos13 Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
Thanks. I tried to find one before, but didn't find one that seemed to work. I never tried searching for 'aero' though. I'll take a look at some of these. And thank you so much for the original.
