Guess I missed that.

I just tried StyleTab, and I'll just be honest - it's hideous. I can't
imagine black going well with any default desktop themes out there. I
don't see anywhere to configure the colors, but guess that is normal.

Plus there are just a mess of buttons taking the the majority of the
horizontal titlebar space of a full-screen window on my netbook.

And I have no clue what most of these buttons do, and since there are
not tooltips (a sawfish limitation? or?), I may never know what some
of them are supposed to do.

I guess having a tab-capable theme is a good default.

Not sure how useful this rant is... or what, if any, actionable items
I would suggest...

Leaving tab support aside, who prefers the aesthetic appeal of
StyleTab over Crux?
