Ubuntu New Wave skin for Opera

I’ve recently been flip flopping between two themes that are offered in Ubuntu 9.04 and I like to have everything integrate nicely.

So, I spent a little time putting this skin together, or modifying it rather, so that it helps give Opera a more integrated feel into the Ubuntu New Wave environment without sacrificing the graphics and layout that Opera has by default.

You can find this skin in the Opera section along with a few others that I’ve uploaded or simply take the direct link to the skin page.

You can also find out more details about the skin there as well as a complete change-log with previous versions of the skin.

    Hey!
    Thanks for that great skin, I’m actually using it.

    There’s minor disturbance though. The black text on active tab is not really much readable, so I suggest trying white or some other colour to have the best contrast.

    kthxbye!

    I was a little worried about trying a dark text on this active tab. I will test out a lighter text of not white. I’m glad you like how it fits!

    Please let me in on any other complaints. I love to hear feedback, but suggestions are the best as long as they are constructive to everyone!

    Nice theme. I have only one suggestion – why don’t you continue the gradient form where it ends in titlebar to smth darker to see how it looks?
