I like rounded corners. But I don't like the various
approaches I've seen using images and extra markup.

This is interesting.  No images?  Still, I think the
jQuery corners script is much more elegant.  I don't
really notice the aliasing in my browser.

Cool. Interested to see what you do with this.

I like the concept of the top bar, but it does (as a
barrage of people have noted) push down the page
slightly.  Many reduce some of the padding on this? It
would create a nice space for secondary links though.

I think the AJAX stuff should stay out of this for
now, as it adds more work to the already endless pile

Keep at it, I'd really like to see more.  The more
variations and ideas thrown in the better, I say.
