I love the theme and also seahorsepip's Support is AWESOME!
The theme is simple but nice ;). One thing I have to say is that there is no windows 7 version included and the icons are also not implented. The taskbar was updated a time ago so the picture is also old. But i got the old taskbar back by asking him in skype of an modded theme file. His Skype name is linked on his website btw.

Paid $ 5 really worth very much!
and to seahorsepip: Please update the theme more often! :)
Nice look my friend!!

Greetings from Germany!

Thanks for the update! I bought it again to show support :)
Just wondering, is the Firefox addon still being updated? I got the very first version that came with free version of the theme and there's a tiny issue in Fx29+.
Seahorsepip 3 days ago  Professional Interface Designer
You mean the stratiform addon?
That addon is currently being updated for FF 29+ and is currently in testing phase.
Nah, you had an addon that made Firefox borderless, its file name is I actually figured out it was one of my style causing the issue, though I haven't been able to fix it as it seems to be completely random, kind of annoying, eh.
