Editors' Review

+
Although this program lacks a heavy feature set, it adds some variety to Internet Explorer's look for no cash. The program's no-frills interface consists of a box that lets you choose from 13 included skins. Every time you launch a Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer window, aSkin randomly cycles though the skins you've chosen, which include such textures as wood grain, cloth, and stone. We didn't particularly like the look of some of the skins on our Explorer toolbars, as some of them obscured browser icons. You can add your own skins, as they're just BMP files in aSkin's program folder, but the program offers no assistance in helping you customize it. Nor will you find features that let you order the way in which the skins appear. Despite its simplicity, IE users who are tired of the same-old same-old might check out aSkin, particularly since it's free.

"Good idea to change boring skin designs on IE."

May 04, 2007  |  By Cakesmg

 |  Version: aSkin 1.11

Pros

I like the amount of designs there are and you can also import your own. The idea of brightening up IE is a brilliant one.

Cons

The skins do show up on the My Documents folder but do not appear to work with Internet Explorer 7.
