Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Glassy Buttons is a great online button generator. Why so great? Well, because you can customize every aspect of the button: starting with button and text color, rollover text and background colors, you can specify your own images or custom font and so on.

After you finish building your button, you can download a zip file containing all the images and a "readme.txt" file where you will find all the attributes of your new button. For instance, this is the content of my custom glassy button readme.txt:
