Project Chameleon – Firefox Desktop (platform & inContent) Interaction Elements

• Strategy: Assemble. Iterate. Maintain.

• Currently in the "assemble" phase, documenting our current Australis style, while adjusting the inContent Ui to create a more cohesive look and feel. It's important to note that the assembly does not have to be "right", that is for the "iterate' phase, which will be done on a team level.

• Lot's of documentation in progress and hopefully I'll have something to share next week, but for now a tease: http://people.mozilla.org/~mmaslaney/Chameleon/index.html

Bug 894224 - Australis tabs separators are too faint
