Hello Rejetto,
i do not know why, but since last versions the grey colour (showing the progress) behind that percentage-number is getting darker and darker so that i have difficulties to read how many % of a file have been sent or received. Would it be possible to make it lighter? I have no idea how to make it lighter here in my Windows2000-settings.

hi yves, can you tell me the versions where you had the right color, and the version you are using with "bad" color?

Yes, Rejetto, have been all versions after that 067. Actually i use the build 071. Besides of that "too dark grey": super program ! :)

Hello Rejetto,
i tried them all, and those after build 071 too. For my personal taste the grey colour (showing the progress) behind that percentage-number is too dark so that i have difficulties to read how many % of a file have been sent or received. Would it be possible to make it lighter? I have no idea how to make it lighter here in my Windows2000-settings.
Would be nice too if grey would be replaced by a light blue or light yellow.

Yes, Rejetto, for my special taste all mentioned versions have this problem for me. I think before build 067 is has been easier for me to read the number of percentage. I just think that the present grey colour behind the number is too dark, i think it's actually around grey-50%. For my personal taste a saturation of around 25% for grey would be better and the number of percentage would be better readable.

The right answers are:    22%    -    43%    -    54%    -    72%    -    88%    ;)

The index "%" behind the number of percentage could also miss, as it is written above.

rejetto, that's in the HFS gui.  It's been that way for a very long time and wasn't introduced recently.  I see the same behavior.

yes, i think these colors are used since long time, but it's ok to consider it hard to read.
In next build i will use Gray 25% as suggested.

For more flexibility i will blend 25% between window background an window text, so that it should be readable also with customized windows colors.

Yes, Rejetto this would be great, thank you  :)

Another solution could be to make the digits changing from dark to light when the background changes from light to dark, like in Opera international version 9.010:
