<b>QuBranch v1.0.20060917 For Firefox 2.0 Branch Builds (Date Released: 2006-09-18)</b>
Explanation: QuBranch is a theme based on the Qute theme by Arvid Axelsson, but the code will be kept in line with the WinStripe/Default Firefox theme of the Branch 2.0 builds. The code will pretty much be the same with just a few minor tweaks for neatness and bloat removing. The major difference will be that the themes will have all of Qute's graphics in them.
This is the further development of my Qute 3 for Firefox 1.5 theme some of you may be familiar with.
It's all just to keep Qute working with the Branch builds. I spoke with Arvid in E-Mail about this and he was OK with it as long as I named the themes something else and had a different UUID so people wouldn't get confused with Qute.

Thanks Schrade for your hard work. I have been using your version since your first conversion...
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060213 Firefox/1.5 ID:2006021305
Thanks for posting that over at DSLR.
Very nice looking theme.
Any chance of one for Thunderbird?

Not really but your version looks cleaner and has slightly smaller buttons IMO.

i would post a message on the old qute thread about this new one, for those of us who are "watching" (via email) that thread. i just happened upon this one. love your theme. although i will be manually substituting the winstripe feed icon.
ColdFusion650: Perhaps you misread what I said? The Winstripe feed icon is the STANDARD feed icon now for all browsers. That's what I was referring to. It's the standard that Mozilla and Microsoft (and other browsers) have agreed to.
Nice! No more nagging about an available update in the theme manager.
You may want to update the link in your sig to point to this thread BTW.
"It burns like hygiene!"
oh sorry. i thought u meant the standard qute icon (ie satellite).
So, like.. I'm trying to get the update to work via the Theme Manager but it's not working. Can someone help me out and check out my RDF code?
I can't figure out why my latest Firefox 2.0 Branch build isn't detecting an update :-/
I downloaded your latest update and manually installed it and I checked the install.rdf and it still shows the old date - em:version>1.0.20060206</em:version> So I believe I updated but it still shows the same date.
Well I will uninstall the current version, install an older version and try again.
