Hey there,

If you have a look in the config file for the Beautiful module (usually at /usr/share/awesome/themes/default/theme.lua), there's a setting called theme.border_width. If you set this to 0, Awesome shouldn't display any chrome surrounding your windows.

However, you many notice that there's a slight "crack" showing between windows, especially when tiled; this can be removed by adding the line "size_hints_honor = false" to your awful.rules.rules table in rc.lua. More info can be found at http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/FAQ#How_to_remove_gaps_between_windows.3F.

Hope this helps!
