I’m a big fan of Mint and use it to monitor stats on this site. During a span of free time yesterday I decided to create a new Style for it. The current native styles use a lot of images for rounded corners and shadow effects. As much as I like the Dark Pepper Mint theme, I wanted something lighter without being blinded by white.

Winterfresh Mint Style

There is heavy use of border-radius, border-image, box-shadow, and text-shadow CSS3 properties in the style. I also threw in some webkit-transition for tab background color animation and webkit-gradient for pane header backgrounds. I’m happy with how it turned out. Plus, Matt points out that using this Style on the iPad makes him feel like he works for NASA.

Tested in Safari 4, Firefox 3.6, Chrome, iPhone Mobile Safari, and iPad Mobile Safari. Webkit is a winner here. Internet Explorer untested and unsupported.

You can download the style from the Peppermill and fork it on Github.

    I think dark pepper has finally been dethroned.

    Beautiful theme, thank you!
