Yet Another WinDec I Drew But Didn't Implement (YAWIDBDI?)... anyway, this one is inspired by websites like that use those really cool rounded-rectangular tab thingies. They're so simple and yet I think they look really cool.

Attached is the Inkscape SVG file containing the drawing. If you've seen any of my other entries, you're probably aware that I have no QT/KWin skills and don't plan to implement this as a real window decoration. However, if y'all like it enough, I highly encourage some motivated soul out there to make this a reality.

You are free to use this content in any way you wish, so long as you always properly credit where it came from.

Looks good. I'm nto sure about the buttons though. A pet peeve of mine when it comes to windecs is the difficulty in hitting the buttons. In my opinion there should be no empty space around buttons, so that one can simply move to the top left of the screen and click to close a maximized window. If you catch my drift.

Yeah, I definitely see your point. I, on the other hand, have a pet peeve with overly large buttons which... is kinda hypocritical when you consider that I also did this:

I kind of like these buttons because they are small and off center, which is something I've never really seen before. But then, maybe people don't make buttons this way for good reason ;)
