============================================================================ (February 13, 2011): I apologize but DeviantARt no longer accepts "unknown file type" (in this case .crx files) so i may not be able to update this in the future. If i did it would be a .zip file and would not install automatically.
(August 8, 2010): Google Chrome launched a new style frame (the buttons are now seemless) for the Beta release.
EDIT (2/26/10): Compatibility issue with new version of chrome fixed. Now works with 5.0.342.8+ Also changed the buttons style. The theme should support ANY sized screen now.
EDIT (10/27/09): I fixed the "white box" that appeared if your screen had a higher resolution than 1280x800. Current version supports up to 1280x1024.
EDIT (9/17/09): YOU NO LONGER NEED THE BETA. Chrome 3 was launched with the theme compatibility.
EDIT(8/20/09) : changed the background tab text to black to make it more obvious it's in the background. ============================================================================
To uninstall go to the "wrench" icon in your browser, select "options" then go to the "personal stuff" tab and click "restore to default theme."
I was looking for something like this for about 2 weeks now... shoulda occurred to me to look on DA. This is exactly what I need. I often need to read sites first thing I do when I get up and most skins are absolutely painful to look at with groggy eyes. I use black skins in Stylish for most sites I look at as well.
I kept finding theme after theme that had a black title bar, but all the tabs and UI was still the normal white. All I wanted was the white on black for the text and you freakin did it.
As soon as I saw this theme available I updated to 220.127.116.11.
Looks great, as someone else was saying (I think) the background doesn't appear quite right when maximized in the new tab page. Possibly because I'm running 1680x1050. When restored down it looks perfect.
i didnt try it on the dev release sorry about that =/ wasn't sure how many people were running that version. If you really want to you can open the manifest.json and change the background to non-repeating.
in your < path_to_google_chrome >\extensions folder the theme should be in the folder named "dgjgajfehklohgbchdindkcmdfmlhmke" (i know weird name, i didn't name it) you'll find the file you need in there just edit it with notepad, if you are interested.
if not then you can always download the version from the link i provided
