Dusty Chrome

My Opera Skins:
Dusty Chrome (a.k.a. Opera Google Chrome Dust)

Compatibility: Opera 9.5+
Last Updated: 2009-04-01 @ 20:00
Latest Version: v1.05Download

This skin is just the Google Chrome skin with a few replaced images and the rest desaturated so it matches more closely to the Dust theme in Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex.

I may rename it in the future to “Dusty Chrome”. Name change with v1.02 to Dusty Chrome. 😉

  • Updated checkboxes with those used in the Dust theme instead of regular Google Chrome checkboxes.
  • Updated radio buttons to those used in the Dust theme.
  • Updated the scrollbar to match scrollbars found in the Dust theme.
  • Updated icons and other various images with those found in the Opera 10 Alpha standard skin. Updated icons were mostly for composing html email, however there were a few other new ones.
  • Fixed a bug that was introduced with Opera 10 Alpha 1 and the Chrome style tabs.
  • Cleaned up appearance of tabs and new tab icon on pagebar.
  • Cleaned up skin.ini code a little.
  • Updated group_closed.png and group_open.png to match similar icons found in the Dust theme.
  • Officially titled this skin as “Dusty Chrome”.

  • Replaced pagebar.png background image with one that I worked on a short while back (last year for v1.06 of Standard Dust 😉 ) so that the skin matches the latest release of the Dust theme’s title bar color scheme. I will work a little more in the future to perfect it even more.

  • Set “Fallback foreground = 1” and “Fallback background = 1” after being contacted by Opera about them cleaning up and improving their skin selection.


  • 2009-04-01
  • Retouched the scrollbars and pagebar background to match the ones found in the Ubuntu 9.04 Dust theme.
