I use this 4 years now from the day i discovered it in 2004, i am used to it, i have my favorite plugins always with me, fav styles, very lightweight onto the system. Very sexi. recommended for every one.

I really wanted to give this a good review, but I can't. I had bbLean loaded on my PC for about 2 weeks, initially liking it a lot. I loved the degree of customization, the available skins, etc. But a problem arose that forced me to remove bbLean from my PC; whenever any program would freeze (give me "not responding") bbLean would also freeze, making it impossible to switch away from the offending program. If I tried using Task Manager, the frozen program would be listed as "not responding", naturally, but so would bbLean. To often I had to force bbLean to quit to be able to continue using the PC.

If anyone knows of a workaround to this, plz let me know, I'd happily re-load it!

This is simply the BEST shell I've used. If I could give it a 10 I would =) If you like linux/unix you will like this for you windows box.

really a good alternative toolbar for windows.
Some may not like this [i know people that don't]
but this is something that i was looking for
all this time. And besides, there's a nice
database of plugins that you can use as well.
