    Phoronix: GTK+ Gets A New Default Theme

    The latest change abound for GNOME 3.14 is a new default theme for the GTK+ tool-kit...

    The long-standing default "Raleigh" theme has finally been replaced by the more modern "Adwaita" theme that is very simple, depends on no theme engine, and is lightweight in terms of resource consumption.
    Actually, the Phoronix article got those mixed up, those are the only advantages "Raleigh" had.

    (Just in case someone reads the article and forums but doesn't check the blog post.)

        With these sliders and tabs it looks quite similar to the Plasma Next theme currently in development.
        I like it!

          I'm still not a fan of the Adwaita theme, especially the Window Controls.

          They seem very... candyish.

            So pretty trumps resource use. CSS parsing is not exactly lightweight by any measure.

              It's terribly ugly. And everything is huge, as if it were built for touchscreens, though virtually nobody uses Gnome with a touchscreen.

                It's not the size that bothers me, it's the colours and gradients.

                  I like new theme. At least, it is more better than Raleigh.

                      Really?

                      I didn't notize Raleigth was the default theme.

                      Instead I think Adwaita was.

                      At least it's the Debian's default since they started to package Gnome 3 more than a couple years ago for the unstable/testing tree of Wheezy.

                          You are probably confusing GTK default with GNOME default. Adwaita was always the GNOME default theme starting with 3.0 however GTK default has switched over. In most cases, in any Linux distribution, you won't see the GTK default anyway so it isn't as much of a difference but for other platforms, it can matter.

                            Not that I'm contesting the above, far from it, but is anyone aware of actual metrics on how slow it is?

                              Are there even any modern theme engines that don't use CSS in one form or another?

                              Also, CSS parsing: slow? Can't really see why as usually you only have to parse the stylesheet once, when you load the application/theme/whatever...
