I'm a huge fan of Pale Moon and use it daily.
Windows XP's chrome doesn't include code that utilizes or detects aero glass. As a result, in Windows Vista, since they aligned the codebase of Vista chrome to XP chrome, Chrome windows now use the solid XP blue color instead of Windows Aero. I'm sure you can imagine that it looks very hideous and out of place on Vista, however you can somewhat remedy the issue by installing a different theme (or better yet, uninstall chrome completely and use Pale Moon )
What I partially don't understand is why they didn't align it to Windows 7 instead of XP which is much closer to Vista, but I guess missing APIs or draw calls in Vista that are present in 7 that chrome uses are to blame. But that really doesn't make it any less ridiculous in my opinion, they could still make it look half decent by allowing aero glass. I don't see how that would be such a problem. Or better yet stop forcing a custom UI and use the native UI in all windows versions, but I guess that would be too easy.
But of course, the community has already created workarounds... https://code.google....etail?id=451733(scroll to the bottom).
Use Pale Moon so you don't have to put up with Australis.
What is the difference between the Chrome "XP" and "7" styles? I always wished that Chrome just conformed to the UI completely.
