I did need to tweak a couple of things though as I wanted the idle background and border to be transparent. If you could include this option in the plugin it would be great.
I edited the xml and php files to make the default tabColor & tabBorder to be empty and its perfect.
Thanks for a great extension.
Dear fnzb, actually you did not need to tweak the XML file to do this. All you need to do is type the word transparent in the color box (replacing the HEX color) and that would have given you the effect you wanted. Thanks for your great review & rating!
