It's an Emerald theme, part of Divergence IV: A New Hope (http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/try-something-different-divergence-iv.html).

This is what I could Find , but in your link the buttons have been moved to the left and the tab looks different . Also it is GTK not Emerald. Divergence IV is the closest match but I will look some more . http://jurialmunkey.deviantart.com/art/Insignificant-182490780

Thanks for help Frogs,
It may not be divergence after all. I've emailed the author of article asking him about the theme, i'm still waiting for reply...

I could not find anything that matches more closely than the theme in the second link.

You both were right,

"The Gtk+ theme is called A New Hope. It's available from GNOME-Look.org: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Divergence+IV+-+%22A+New+Hope%22?content=133892" says author of the article

Thanks for help!

Then it apparently just looks that different because of the background (since the titlebar is partly transparent) and the order of the window controls, the author also has the additional menu button there. Actually a really nice theme!

Yeah, that looks ... really nice with AWN on Lucido. Think I'm picking that up.

I tried the theme just yet, and it actually turned out that it also has the title on the left side, like in the screenshot of the article, not on the right like in the screenshot at the theme's page.

Yeah, but where are the gorgeous transparency and smooth transitions? I don't know if it's the settings I selected in its "configuration" routine, but it did not look like the picture when I got it out of the box.

OTOH, related to matching themes, anyone seen ChromeTheme.net? Just ran into it, and now my Chrome matches my GTK (textured window background and all.) Neat tool.

Edit: Wait, you're not the same person (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1685679)? That's a damned striking theme, then. = )

I don't know how it actually looks like, since I'm not willing to upgrade the murrine engine through its PPA just to check it.

I'm not actively using Chromium.

Ah. Missed that detail. So that would be my problem. = )

Edit: Actually just tried it out - not bad.

Since I had to upgrade to the current version of murrine to check to new "Light Themes" (of Maverick), I now also really tried this theme. And along the AwOken icon theme and the included emerald theme it really doesn't look bad!:)

But I guess I will stick with my own modified version of the iMetal Leopard theme, it's a bit darker and doesn't has such a contrast.
