Metallifizer has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

Metallifizer will enable or disable brushed metal appearance on selected Cocoa applications under Mac OS X 10.2 (this includes Safari, Address Book, iChat, Calculator and others, but not iTunes and QuickTime Player, as latter are Carbon applications). Features:

  • Adds brushed metal appearance to Cocoa applications.
  • Removes brushed metal appearance from Cocoa applications.
  • Implemented as an Application Enhancer 1.2 module.

What's New

Version 1.3a1:
  • Preliminary support for stripping out brushed metal out of Panther's Finder.
  • I have only tested this on Panther, so I have no idea if it works on Jaguar; if you use Jaguar, you best still be using 1.2 as this version offers no advantages suitable for 10.2.
  • I suggest adding Finder.app into the settings panel manually. it's in /System/Library/CoreServices/ directory.
  • Other more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later, Appearance Enhancer 1.0 or later

*Previously available here

Who says it doesn't fit on Panther?
Works fine on my titanium 1ghz with 10.3.6.
I love brushed metal interface
and hate that effeminated aqua-style.
Hope this haxie will be tuned for Tiger.

Its great to see the kind of freeware developers are working on nowadays. I personally prefer the brushed metal look and wanted to change Mail.app to reflect that. Metallifizer did this quickly and easily.

Thank you, Unsanity!

We should not need this, but even Apple does not follow their interface guidelines (eg Safari).

Does what it says it does.
