Get iTunes style scrollbars in Mac OS X Leopard

Nov 11, 2007 - 7 Comments

The appearance of Mac OS X has slowly been drifting away from the old aqua style to a more modern and refined look that closely resembles iTunes. The change in this direction was really made obvious within Leopard with the introduction of the coverflow style finder and the removal of the brushed metal windows. For some reason, Apple ignored the scrollbars though, and we still have Aqua-styled candy looking scrollbars when everything else resembles iTunes. So you had to figure it was only a matter of time before a crafty Mac user would change that, and here we have it. Installation is very easy, but I would backup the .rsrc file before you replace it with this new version.
