Thanks, that's very useful. To my eye the infinality patches look just a bit better than Ubuntu default rendering, although I doubt I could put my finger on specifically what it is (no matter, I only need to know for me that it looks subjectively better than something else).
The default rendering on the infinality patches aren't always that noticable. To really get the most out of them, you should either:
$ infctl setstyle
Select a style:
1) debug 3) linux 5) osx2 7) win98
2) infinality 4) osx 6) win7 8) winxp
To set a predefined style, or edit /etc/profile.d/infinality-settings.sh
and customise it to fit your exact preferences.
It should be noted that some of those predefined styles require MS ttf's to be installed. They can be installed through your distro's repository as usual.
Nice, I've definitely been liking when I see that in a distro review. One question though, with Chromium, do the tabs end up sitting in the top panel?
Not that I'm aware of, but you can always go full screen in a browser and reclaim the whole vertical screen space for it.
