Changes Safari user interface.

Overview

SafarIcon allows you to change Safari's user interface by installing icons as well as other application resources such as nib files and localization files. SafarIcon automatically downloads and installs a set of high quality icon themes. SafarIcon copies all graphical elements of Safari's user interface from its own themes into the Resources folder of Safari.app. The application previews the new icons in a simulated browser window. SafarIcon also gives you the option to install Brush Metal, Aqua or Unified appearances of both the browser and download windows with optional installation of a New tab button. In addition, it allows you set various hidden, but useful preference settings for Safari that are not accessible to the user through Safari.
  • Features over 20 high quality icon themes
  • Previews theme appearance before installing (WYSIWYG)
  • Flexible install options (full themes or individual icons)
  • Installs Aqua, Brushed Metal or Unified appearance
  • Option to install a New Tab button istead of Bug Report
  • Customizable preferences, including custom themes
  • Option to enable Safari's hidden Debug menu
  • Option to specify link styles and colors in Safari
  • Option to disable Safari's page and site icon caches
  • Option to instruct Safari to download PDFs instead of viewing in browser
  • Option to enable Safari to print page background images
  • Option to istruct Safari to show URL tooltips when hovering mouse over links
  • Option to specify Safari's history limits (in days, number of items, and menu items)
  • Optional auto-update of SafarIcon application, icon themes and appearance files from website

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).

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.

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")

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?
