I have my top panel transparent. It looks nice, except for when I browse the internet, the black bar along the top of chrome, which looks pretty against the non-transparent panel, sticks out like a sore thumb against the top panel. Here is a picture: enter image description here

Is there some way I can make the top bar in chrome transparent too, so that they both look nice together? Thanks for any help in advance.

The top panel style you're using is controlled by Chrome themes. You can go to Chrome Preferences-Personal Stuff-Appearance and select a different theme by clicking "Get Themes". A theme can be selected that has top with a color close to the tone of your background. Not the transparency you desired but you will be able to select a lest stark color.


Primitive theme creator - http://chromizer.com/ - just few clicks.

  • Huh... you linked to the Themes category, not to a theme.
