The things I'm not sure about here are:
 - The orange glow. I like the idea of a different-colored shadow, but if it
appears as a glow against certian backgrounds, it seems inconsistent and a
bit cheesy.
 - The min/max/close buttons. I'm not sure if it's too big or if the borders
tick me off...

But on the other hand, I do love the simplicity of it. Having that 1px
highlight was classy and spot-on.
