XP Visual Styles

You know, it would be really nice -- and it would add that extra bit of professionality to put it at the top -- if K-Meleon supported XP's visual styles (that is, on the progam's objects, not objects within the web pages, since that's handled differently). I read some msdn artical on how to do it: you just add some stuff to the project (I don't know if this is incompatible with certain compilers...), yet it remains backwards-compatible. What about it?

Haw. I hate that XP look. What ever happened to nice, clean, grey buttons?? I don't want my computer to look pretty, I want it to be efficent, and to hold as much info as possible without looking like a candy store or a mac rip.

P.S. I'm loving k-melelon. Roaming (as pointed out before) would be a nice feature too. You guys rok. Also, it'd be really REALLY tite if there was some way to have a different bitmapd loaded each time a new window popped up - and I'd like to be able to cascade my multiple wondows too. But these are all things I'd LIKE to see. Otherwise it's super perfect.

Come on... what ever happened to being consitent? Why have an xp program not look like it? It's not like it's going to look that way in 95-2k... so just come on.

I agree with Matthew--if the point is to use native widgets than use all of the ones you can. I'm not sure how well documented this XP feature is, and how easy to implement, but if it is easy, then yes, it would be nice!

Well I use windows 98, and Jeff uses 95, so I really doubt we'll be adding XP features simply because it's quite impossible for us to do so.

I'm not so sure about that.... Or maybe I read it wrong. Hell, I don't know much about Windows prog.g.

One more development:

Using a program that creates a manifest (that's an external file, by the way), k-meleon now is visual-styled -- even the toolbar grabbers! -- except for the browser element (because mozilla does those). You can find the VB source at planet-source-code.com (http://www.planet-source-code.com/xq/ASP/txtCodeId.27928/lngWId.1/qx/vb/scripts/ShowCode.htm).

There is no doubt now, k-meleon is my default browser.
