I tried to dnl from here and Safari turns into all black question marks and other text. This is only related to this particular download. I trid to dnl other programs from other pages and it doe not do the same thing. I tried to download it from the Dev's site but Safari says Safari can't open “guikit://www.maxthemes.com/themes/downloads/tiger/Aluminum%20Alloy%201.7.guiKit” because Mac OS X doesn't recognize Internet addresses starting with “guikit:”. when I clcik on the download for 1.7.

this is a great theme that's easy on the eyes and everything is clear and looks good. I hate all the darker ones that i struggle with (and i've a decent TFT monitor!). This is a good theme - well designed :) thank you!

Aesthetically pleasing, beautifully integrated visually and functionally, and with oodles of "wow" factor. What more can I say? It even passed the "cynical daughter" test!

I love this theme, and would like to comment that Max Rudburgh is not American or English, he's from the Stockholm area, so the aluminum thing is a misplaced argument, I also think Americans use Aluminum as a brand name.

Americans say aluminum because this is the elemental name for it. The English say Aluminium because this is a brand name for aluminum -- just like Reynolds wrap is a brand name for aluminum foil, or is that aluminium foil??? Thought you'd want to know.

This is because English speak English properly. It's their language, did you know...?

The Toxic version is still my favorite daily theme. Never fails to be intuitive and eye-pleasing and it's bright enough that I can adjust the brightness on my powerbook to save energy.

My favorite theme for OS X as of yet. The only one that I like better than the original Aqua to be frank. Cool and metallic, but dosen't get in the way like most themes.

Just looking at the screenshot, this is the only theme that makes me almost want to install ShapeShifter. Almost.

At first glance I assumed this theme would be too mechanical, heavy, and industrial for my taste. But it is actually very pleasant. Reminds me of the gray-ish feel of OS 9 but with enough Aqua accents to keep it from being too flat and stale. Very appealing in every way. The grey "smog" flavor is my favourite.

I have downloaded most of the themes, and this is by far the best one out there. It doesn't get in your face like most of the others. It's very clean and classy. I'm looking forward to seeing other highlight colors in the future.

Outstanding theme in every way. The desktops are great! By far the best theme I have yet seen for Panther.

This theme clearly shows how much Max has worked on it. It is very beautiful, and I use it everyday. It is one of the only themes I like, and almost all of those themes are from Max. It is bright, and I love bright themes, but some people will hate this theme. I love the desktops, also. The color and replacement of items that most themes do not replace clearly make me use this theme. I am currently using the Cyrongenic variant of the theme. It is my personal favorite.

The best theme available for Panther! Works flawlessly, and is very reminiscent of Platinum (OS 9 -- i.e. has all the good features: subdued, darker than Aqua, crisp, squared-off edges) but updated amazing for X and Quartz... I heart Max!

This is one of the more unique themes out there, and the preview shows it all. The theme is a bright aluminum texture, with almost poisonously bright widgets that look as if they were molded out of molten glass. Buttons and menubars are fastened with rivets, giving this theme a unique look of industrial quality not seen in most other themes. The theme comes with 4 different color tones: Cryogenic (blue), Toxic (green), Volcano (red) and Smog (grey). As with all of Max's themes, Aluminum Alloy comes with fantastic extras, including safari button replacements and a series of beautiful and simple desktops that accompany the theme very well. This is not for everyone, however. The bright theme, while beautifully executed, will not appeal to those who prefer darker and more subdued themes. Snow.E 2 Icons are recommended to accompany this newest work from Max Rudburg. Pros: Great features and accompanying extras, super polished and well concepted. Free and stable, now thanks to ShapeShifter. Cons: Will not appeal to those who prefer more subdued themes.
