    Bit too bright for my tastes, i'm afraid! Too much teal going on in the sidebar, it almost burns my eyes. [​IMG]

    Well not so eye catching colours for sideboxes see the arrows those fonts are not even clear can't see Thread starter's username , Top Threads,Top Posters etc are hard to read (making them bold might be good idea) . Try changing colours little bit .

    I'm going to be honest and say that your girlfriend was wrong :p

    It's just a bit too bright, the color can work if you tweak it a bit though.

    I hate IE. IE crashes in windows seven. Chrome crashes half the time. Mozilla works pretty well but I still had issues I did not like. Safari works when it wants to. I have yet had an issue with seamonkey. I love it. So I have about tried em all and landed with seamonkey.

    yall think the teal is too bright????
    Im just tired of blue and want something different. I really want a light orange scheme but have not messed with it.

    What I often do when the color is too bright is note down the hex code and then tweak it a bit in Photoshop (add grey/black to it) and just try it out on the style until I'm happy with it.

    I feel the colours (below) would look nice on a style seeing as you mentioned orange.

    Maybe the 15 open tabs is overkill. Something to consider.

    Life is short. Close a few tabs.

    My current site is orange and grey.
    I was going to redo the style for XF but I've decided on a complete change instead.

    Brogan, can I see your site?
    Also I am working on my orange as we speak.
    I found some colors I like on another site.
    Question:
    Is there a program or software that will let you import saved images into it to determine the images current gradients?
    Seems like a simple approach to things.
    I am trying with photo shop but I don't see anything in there that will help me.
