Update Internet Explorer's look for 10.3
Authored by: coolsoldier on Mar 29, '04 12:45:21AM

Isn't the pinstripe pattern a system resource anyway? I never use IE, but I'd like to know why every other pre-10.3 application uses the new pinstripes and IE uses the old ones.

Update Internet Explorer's look for 10.3

The pinstripe theme is a system resource, but M$ has never really believed in using standard system components. Rather than making a few simple calls, they just have someone emulate the appearance of other applications. This is probably due to the lack of standardization in Windows. In Windows, it is perfectly acceptable for one developer to create a button or a window or anything using completely different means from another developer. On the Mac, developers should generally know better. But not microsoft.
