Your link is for customizing the iGoogle web page, not Google Chrome. My bad, the concept hasn't changed though. Any thoughts on the "convert system colors to an installable theme" alternative?

My Windows color setting magenta-maroon gradient title bar with Winstyle buttons is still not being used. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook. Bart says:. April 24, at am.
