Crystal XP

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Crystal XP

Crystal XP changes all that. It lets you make entire windows transparent, not just borders. And you can easily change the level of transparency as well. In addition, you can change transparency on an application-by-application basis, something you can't normally do in Vista. The program has another nice extra as well --- it will display your CPU use, in percentage.

Note that the program only works in Windows Vista. And the program is still in beta, so if that makes you uncomfortable, don't download.
