I replaced the blue "LED" tab dirty indicator with a simple gray dot (attached)

I like the folder icons - but it seem redundant to have both the folder and arrow icon - they both simple show the state of the folder - open or close.

Would be nice if you could simply swap out the arrow icon with something - maybe that could be part of the theme?

Love the new tabs! But the dirty file indicator not so much. Seen some themes using a colored line at the bottom of the tab instead. How about trying that?

I love the new find buttons! The new tabs are sweet also but I they're a little taller than Refined's tabs.

Find panel buttons seem out of place in Windows and Linux for me - I've only seen this style in Safari, while the old ones were more generic and nice. I may be just used to the old ones, however.
Regarding the tabs: if the menu is not hidden (it is hidden in design screenshots), they miss some kind of top border.

It's amazing how a new theme can create an entirely different impression of an application. I surrendered and gave your theme a try. Your tabs are very classy. I still prefer my autocomplete panel and quickpanel, maybe because they're dark-themed. If you do create a dark theme, maybe take inspiration from this theme and use tweetbot's style for modified tabs.

+1 for not-so-tall tabs whose tops don't quite touch the top of the app's title bar.
+1 for more angle on tab ends so we see more "tray" behind tabs, making them more distinct from one another.

Thanks for all the feedback so far, really appreciate it.

I've pushed an update for Soda Light that now includes both square and curved tabs. The tab style can be toggled via a user setting. Square remains the default at the moment, but to opt into using the curved tabs, add the following line to your "Settings - User" file:

Code: Select all
"soda_classic_tabs": true


I'm still looking for an elegant way to handle custom settings. I'd like to use more than just booleans, and be able to group together all Soda settings under a single namespace rather than introduce a bunch of top level custom flags that may conflict with each other. If you know how to do that in a way that can be then read by a theme, please let me know :)

Here's a screenshot of the two tab styles for Soda Light:
