Chromium Pro vs (beta1) for windows 8/8.1 by RaymonVisual Chromium Pro vs (beta1) for windows 8/8.1 by RaymonVisual
Inspired by chromium os. 
Fully transparent taskbar? Yes it is! Thanks to dblake1 and aeroglass.

chromium ctv vs raymonvisual.deviantart.com/ar… has alot of bugs which i can't fix. I always want a useful and good looking vs. So i decided to make a fresh and new look version of my chromium vs raymonvisual.deviantart.com/ar… .

You must download/install aeroglass glass8.berlios.de/ and taskbarblurtoggle dblake1.deviantart.com/art/Tas…
Planning to make rounder corners, custom bordercolors, bordertransparency. and various versions like w/ribbon, w/o ribbon, ctv (clovertabsversion), etc...
I hope you like it! :)

HOLY SHIT the context menu is themed like Chrome!!! That's what I've been looking for for so long! Is there a way I could use only that part of the theme? :D Personal use, of course :)

Only bug i have noticed so far it that the buttons stretch when you maximize.Also, you may have to tweak the default colors a bit.

Great theme!  Exactly what I was looking for :-)  I am running windows 8.1 x64 and have found just a few graphical glitches/errors that I am not sure if you are aware of.  I linked an example here.   When a window is maximized the cation buttons are distorted and the close button hover and click action begin to far to the left of the button.  Not trying to nit pick here as this is a very nice theme :-) just wanted you to note these before an update happens...keep up the good work!

I found out something interesting today. It seems the dev of Glass8 has removed the (native) ability to blur the taskbar. With that gone, my tool no longer functions.

BUT StartIsBackPlus 1.5 implemented this feature so you no longer need Glass8 to use TBBT! You just need StartIsBackPlus which is far less resource intensive.

Can anyone tell me how to install it? I put the contents of .zip into Resourses/Themes, but when I apply the style, it's nowhere close to what's seen in the screenshot above. Aeroglass just gives me couple of error message on Windows start. I'm on Windows 8.1. What should I do?

taskbarblurtoggle needs blur/aeroglass (which win8/8.1 doesn't have) to work it properly. I think i can't do that :( the vs works fine without aeroglass but the taskbar is not full transparent :(

Yes, unfortunately, this is the case. I've been doing some digging around in Win8 (is the same for 8.1) and the taskbar color and transparency is drawn by explorer.exe itself and not by DWM/DUI. This means we would need a memory hack/hook to get the same effect on 8/8.1, which I am, by no means, talented enough at C++/ASM to do such a thing.

The lack of blur on the taskbar makes it look so much cleaner. This is something like what I did when I first discovered the tweak.

To those having troubles on Windows 8.1: I'm not sure what is happening as I do not have Windows 8.1 downloaded.

How do you make the taskbar completely transparent?
I use the aero glass and the taskbarblurtoggle but it only makes it completely opaque :|
