The classic skin looks great, but the only area still bothering me is the URL 
bar and that area [the big ugly search button, etc.]

The one in QuasiClassic looks, IMO, excellent.  Download it at 
http://members.xoom.com/_XMCM/Biswapesh/Chrome.zip and try it out.

I am willing to provide any donuts necessary to get you to do this.

For the lazy, there's a screenshot up at 
http://members.xoom.com/_XMCM/Biswapesh/almost-classic.gif  -- I realize you 
can't move the Search button outside of the URL bar (as better as I think it 
would look), but I think the gray arrow dropdown looks good, and the icon used 
there isn't too bad (it has a nice hover effect also, and it's nicely spaced 
from the text in the URL bar).  I also think that the border of the URL bar and 
the way it looks more "engraved" in the UI is nice [it looks a little cleaner 
and sharper than Classic's]

I've added an ETA as to when I think Ben will mark this "bug," with its lack of 
any real issue, as WONTFIX out of frustration.

Clicking on that link takes me to:
http://media.xoom.com/tosviol/tosviol.gif
Which is an error. NC4.72 shows the correct URL however.
Just mentioning it, so noone thinks you want a commercial for xoom as the new
search-button ;)
LOL

I have something in mind for this, just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. 

cc'ing gramps as he was the proxy for the most recent set of donuts.

Don: please check out the URL bar in the Classic skin and provide as many 
donuts as you think ben needs to clean it up.  I am willing to reimburse you 
with financial support if ben only eats gourmet donuts, or if the local 
Mountain View Dunkin' Donuts happen to be very expensive.
