I was reading these posts and I just want to tell you, that until Avast changes its entire interface, I will stay with AVG or another more professional looking AntiVirus . The Interface needs a whole new default face.

I think protection is King, aesthetics come a poor second, I can live with virtually any interface, provided the program meets my requirements. I don't care how great the interface is if the program doesn't meet my requirements or sucks, then its gone.

Don't be in danger of throwing out the baby with the bath water, just my thoughts as an Ex AVG user.

Hi David,

Can you take a look in here:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=13208.msg111500#msg111500

I'm in process of designing some kind of professional skin (at least I hope it will look that way) for avast! I would like to hear as much opinions as possible before I start to compile everything... it will be great if RejZor and I release these two skins soon, because avast! really need something different at this point...

Thanks !

mmm... I do not want to criticize, Sasha and RejZor, but I see some elements of confusion in this part of the skin. What do you think about? It's only my idea?

I'm sorry but I can't see any element of confusion... everything is separated as it should be. If you meant on first sliding panel (Resident Scanner), that is maybe too close to Program Menu tab... well, that sliding panel is not there anyway. It shows up only when you invoke that action with the button. Anyway, of course we have to count with confusion, especially if you work on that small area... I didn't want to make another huge skin. We should always think of those who still use 800x600 pixels resolution.

All those elements fits exactly as they should considering that small working area. Btw, the screenshot you just posted is not the latest one. I redesigned all those fonts and some orderings. Take a look at latest screenshoot I posted in that thread...

Edit: Also, nothing can be perfect and it's not quite good if it's 100% symmetric...

Yes, i've seen  :)... but I like very much the idea of a simply interface. Sure, I appreciate really the evolution of the project but the first RejZor's idea was to make an intuitive and less elaborated skin (if I've understood well). So I propose some thing like this below... but I'm ready to download the most of the fine projects I've seen here!!!  ;D

If you make those sliders in that order like on your screen, I really don't know how would you accomplish animation for those sliders... or, even if you don't wanna use animation, there is no chance for those sliding panels to "jump" one over another... this way, you brought confusion to the lower part of the skin... from the top to the bottom of the skin area... no gain IMHO.

I must add that the 3 grey bars with the tools would slide to the high and expand... if possible.

No problem Kamulko, I'm in the middle of finishing one huge web/flash project, and unfortunately I don't have enough time to play with this skin right now, but as soon as I catch some spare time, I'll try to finish it... all graphic parts are already drawn and ready for compiling...

Cheers !

I will stay with AVG or another more professional looking AntiVirus .  The Interface needs a whole new default face.
In this case, AVG ugly = professional  ;D

This is starting to turn into a tennis match.
The only true way to win the match is to be better than your opponent.
Bashing your opponent, doesn't win the match, it only makes him mad and stronger.
For avast! to be on top, it must be the best in it's field by it's merit.
I hope you understand the message that I'm trying to get across.

Bob, if you see almost all my posts of this day, you see that I'm joking. One example: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=13227.msg111446#msg111446  ;D
