    I will have a quick crack at it.. (would that resolution not be bigger than some users screens?)

    Ok my quick attempt..
    Tested in firefox and IE and it mostly renders ok..
    Just download the text file and rename it to html and open in a browser.

    If you have access to a database and php you could easily allow users to save their own customised link buttons and personalise the google search for their country etc...

    Hope that helps.

    If you are ok with html it shouldn't be too hard to follow what I have done and tweak the colours etc (not really much of a designer )

    Looks good, better than what I could have done. But it is kinda generic...
    How about adding some color to that background? What is the default skin color(s) for FreeICE?

    Yeah it is a bit, I wasn't feeling too imaginative
    I also figured that as it was going to be inside freeice and inside the browser too much more branding might be overload.. but I haven't used or seen freeice so not sure
    Not sure on default colours either I got the grey and blue ideas off the main page in Steve's Signature.

    Should be pretty easy for someone to mod or even me if someone gives me some more direction.

    Okay, the gray background is a little off, Steve, please post the #00000 (or RGB) number for the gray on your site. The FreeICE logo in the top of the main page of the website could also be edited to replace where the new page says FreeICE news. Could go on and on right down to basically copying Steve's theme, but I'm going to bead, will tweak Stretch's design tomorrow and see what happens.

    Yeah I was going to do a screen grab and steal the actual colours but I was too lazy just for a quick demo
    I was also worried it might be a bit dark for the small page. But go for it the more options the better.

    Hey, thats a perty good idea.

    I don't think it will be to dark, and if it is what good would the browser be anyway?

    Actually I have just realised I have firebug installed lol that will be even faster to get the exact colour
    Yeah was more just meaning depending on how much of the colour is showing can make a whole page appear very dark or very light..
    But yeah will give it a shot now, I just remembered the reason I didn't steal the logo too for faster loading, not that one small image will matter too much..
    Will upload in a sec

    There we go bit more to play with..
