Change the windows border adding PNG support and transparency
TrueTransparency is one of the solutions that fall in the latter category and although it does only a single thing, it may still be worth your attention because it will bring a new level of transparency to your windows.
The application comes as a very light tool that adds a windows border with transparency, thus trying to make the operating system a bit more attractive throughout, without hampering computer performance at all.
During our tests, nonetheless, we did notice some performance problems caused by the app, mostly related to the window behavior when they are dragged around the desktop.
Although the utility remains light on computer resources, the rest of the windows, now with a more appealing border, seem to be seriously hindered, regardless of the enabled features.
TrueTransparency doesn't come with a proper interface. Instead, it sits in your system tray and right-clicking its icon provides access to all its options. These include the possibility to enable three different features, AeroShake, WinRoll and AeroSnap. The program also has some customization preferences, letting you choose between multiple skins.
To conclude, its safe to say that TrueTransparency is nothing more than a good tool that performs decently overall, in spite of some occasional glitches. The looks of the system windows are indeed very nice but the performance issues may deter some users from keeping it permanently no their systems.
