Update: Gradient iCool 1.0.9 in Sandbox! Download it quick!

I've been working on this update for ages, since the last update in March. This update includes an awful lot of advances from the last update. The most noticeable difference is, of course the Mac-style address bar and search bar. They've been redesigned and they are a massive improvement from the last bar. (Text boxes are changed to a Mac-style as well!)

Toolbar icons are redesigned as well. Glossy borders are added to them. They are redesigned to look more professional and less child-like. Then it's the tab bar. The tab bar is redesigned as well. It follows the principle of smooth and cool. Blue gradients with black glossy background. Now separators are applied between each tab, which makes it easier for you to distinguish between tabs.

The update is also made more compatible with Download Statusbar, DownThemAll!, and Fission. A meteor-like object has been added along the address bar, to indicate the progress if Fission is used. A few bugs are also fixed. It will also be available for my other themes hopefully.

Latest Improved User Interface

Have a look at the improved user interface, which will be publicised in the next version. It is made to be seamless and smooth. The screenshot shows the navigation pane, along with the new address and search bar and the new cool tabs. At last don't forget to have your comments here.
