Aero Glass effect on Windows XP with Border Skin

Border Skin is a new software that enables the famous Aero effect in Windows XP title bars and borders. The software adds transparency, blur and reflection as seen on Windows 7 and Windows Vista.


Border Skin requires no installation. Just unzip it and run the executable to transform all window borders to the Aero look. Every effect the software enables on the border can be turned on or off by the user. So you can enable only transparency without reflection, or adjust the blur level to a desired value or simply turn it off. The software also includes a great number of skins with various shades of color.

Be aware, that any eye candy on Windows is heavy on the resources. Border Skin consumes about 50 MB of system memory but the performance is generally smooth and acceptable.
