The GTK+ theme is definitely (judging by its look) designed with an in-depth attention to details, touching numerous small yet relevant in action desktop corners, furthermore, the user, from the very beginning, observes originality and pleasant integration with the overall desktop look&feel:
  • titlebar's buttons have different shapes, starting with the big orange close button, easily identifiable and closable, followed by the minimize/maximize properly proportioned buttons
  • Nautilus' search area is rendered with a thick orange border that adds a fancy and integrated aspect
  • indicators/text are, when clicked/active, highlighted with Salience's orange color, thus allowing the user to easily spot the navigation on the dark Unity panel
  • Firefox gained modified scrollbars, that mimic Ubuntu's Ayatana Overlay Scrollbars, taking, via the mentioned resemblance, Firefox a step further into proper visual integration with the Ubuntu desktop
  • Chromium/Chrome features fancy orange scrollbars, too with a minimalistic orange line across the scrolling area
  • Nautilus's addressbar is vividly rendered with clear, distinct items, feel strengthened by its right-click clean menus
