I can't get it to work for Safari 4.04. Am I doing something wrong?

Mac OS X 10.4.3 & Safari 2.0.2

Works perfectly and it's very well done. Lot's of options and lot's of details. Now my Safari icons stand out just the way I like it!

Well worth a look and download!

Thanks to the developer(s)!

Excellent application. Easy to use, and updated as soon as Safari is updated for compatibility. Personally, I am surprised that Apple doesn't buy this and use it as a standard issue with Safari. Essential.

I preferred the round buttons on the Oahu and Molokini interface/skin which are changed in this version. I emailed the author, Reinhold, and shortly after he emailed me the theme files for the round buttons! He also mentioned these will be available on his website if anyone is interested (go to the link for "More Information" for access).

Tell me, exactly, how this is "essential"?

I've been using this app since it first came out, and it just keeps getting better. The developer stays on top of Safari updates as Apple releases them, and his tech support is the best I've ever experienced. Would you believe a response within MINUTES to an email question?

Oh, and it makes Safari look great, too. :)

The new/updated themes look great---at first---but then they get black, jagged rings around them. Any suggestions?

Specifically, I put together Molokini with the Unified appearance.

Chances are that you have ShapeShifter installed (or some other haxie). If you have ShapeShifter, tell it to exclude Safari.

Just choose "Safari" from the Icon Themes.

I have tested this version extensively and I can certainly install any and all combinations of appearances, including the Safari default appearance. I'd be happy to troubleshoot this with you, but I need more info from you to do so. Just click on the feedback button to email me. You can also contact me via iChat (AIM "enaloha")

That's uncalled for giving it one star just because you've got your head up your nether regions!

I double click Sararicon, wait a few seconds and the message comes up "the application has unexpectedly quit" This is a great allpication in general but the version isn't working for me.

Try a fresh installation. Delete SafarIcon.plist in your Preferences folder and delete or rename the SafarIcon folder in Application Support.

Reinhold:

I had the same problem with a close upon startup---you might want to move this fix up to the top of the ReadMe with the next release?
