I like the glass effect on our current widgets. There's a strange
greyness to the top half progressbar currently that I don't like, but I
do like the glass effect nonetheless. These new mockups are smoother,
rounder, but don't have the same glass effect that we have elsewhere on
our buttons. Of the two, I prefer the one on the left, because while it
is toned down it is still glassy.

I'd like to see a slightly more polished mockup that incorporates the

While we are here I'm reminded of one additional thing I'd like to see
mocked up. On the scrollbars, the white tips at each end might look even
better if they had slightly rounded corners like the slider endpoints.
Does that make sense? The reason this was requested was if the scrollbar
is all the way up it looks a little as though the "well" is white and
the scrollbar is 1 millimeter from the top - the end point looks like a
space rather than an end point. It was suggested to me that rounding the
corners of the scrollbar end point would make it clear that its a sort
of cap on the scrollbar, not empty space. Richard, could you mock that
up too? Just following the end points of the slider is probably best.
