Enjoy it while it lasts. That brushed look may be gone in October. Wink

I was on a Opera and Firefox kick for a while, but I'm back to using Safari now. I'll tell you what though, Opera is pretty darn fast.

You've got a very good point. Most apps might end up with the same effect like iTunes as it is now. I like the reflective things on iTunes but taking away the brushed steel effect made it look plain and boring.

Agreed. I prefer the brushed metal over the new look. The new look is boring and a little Linuxy.

Use shapeshifter and get rid of that look Wink

I like Safari. I feel comfortable that Apple will keep it secure. I like keeping my update list simple. I like the command-I feature to email webpages, I also like the snapback feature.

I used to use Camino, but it stopped loading for some reason. Now I sitck to Safari, and I don't think i'll use any other browser. It seems to be the fastest browser on my mini also, so that's a plus.

Im liking camino at the moment its really slick and intuative. Also i'm almost embarresed to ask this noob question but how do i make safari fill the whole screen, on camino u hit the green maximise button but in safari that does very little and there's still loads of unused space on the screen.

Cheers for the link Bandit Bill but that seems like an awful lot of hassle to get a browser to fill up your whole screen, seems like a neccesity not something you should have to add yourself.

Unfortunately, the inconsistent behavior of the green button leaves a lot to be desired. It's one of the glaring oversights on Apple's part.

Ye it is kinda strange since every other app ive used just fills up the screen and on windows maximize fills up the whole screen.
