History:

I took over the development of this skin in march 2011 since Ph0xy didn't have the time to maintain it.
Up until version 2.1 I've only made minor changes to Ph0xys design.

With Version 3.0 I've started making some major design changes, especially to the top area.
With Version 3.4 experimental coloring has been introduced via settings.ini

Notes:
  • Seems to work on Mac, but more feedback is appreciated.
  • Works on Linux, except for the ingame overlay, which shows the default skin for some reason.
  • I don't use all features of Steam, so if you find any glitches or problems, please make a screenshot and notify me.

Screenshots:
Settings:
  • In the skin folder there is a settings.ini. Open it with a text editor.
    In this file you can change the themes color, just follow the instructions in the file.

BTW, could you make it possible so that we can add grid images for non-steam games and mods? <3

Work in progress of an even smaller version:
http://lusito.info/steamui/wip.png

- I've removed a lot from the menus since most of the entries where already present on the steam window and cluttered the menu experience.
- The Avatar icon has been removed from the root window.
- The Main Navigation is now smaller and at the top, maybe they could be drawn as tabs, not sure, since the current way also looks good imho.
The URL/Game Details controls have been moved to the right of the back/forward buttons.

Tell me what you think

Possible bug report:

Using small mode and starting with friends set to offline, using the four status switches, you can get this result.

Request:
Can you toggle the +(show icon) switch on\off or remove it completely? (as with the search box as well) and move the show Installed\all games drop down to the right of the help menu?

@Eunos:
Doesn't look like a skin related issue to me. Could you try it with the normal skin ?

+(show icon) = the one above the scrollbar in the games list ?
BTW: Why are there even 2 choices there, you can only select one ?

The search and game filter button I'm currently moving around to see where it works best.

@Kaixx:
I'm sorry, what arrows ? The dropdown menu arrows ? They show on both for me.
Could you make a screenshot ?

The "tick" issue you can ignore, it was when Steam wasn't allowing me to log into the friends part, I've just tried it again and yeah, the tick only displays on the currently selected status.

Yup, that's the icon, and no idea on the two choices little bit silly to me but meh.

Sweet, many thanks.
