I haven't figured out how to make most toolbars smaller when they are on the right or left side, but I do know how to resize the tab toolbar. I am currently making an experimental skin which is designed to have the tabs on the right or left sides, without having them take up too much space.
I haven't changed the buttons or icons yet, just layout, background images, borders, boxes, and scrollbars. the backgrounds are still in the air, I don't kow what the final background images will be; there are just too many choices.
Well, here's a rough preview image.
I lost my files that have T-Rite. I could try re-starting, give up, or try to find them. Right now, nothing is happening, so T-Rite isn't going to happen... (for a while)

B-lite is public!
It can be found here
I kept making little changes, and it looks much better (to me) than before these little changes.
I now intend to experiment with tabs and side toolbars, to see if I can make tabs on teh right side not take up huge ammounts of space. Wish me luck!

I fixed the minor things in my skin by making a slightly updated version and uploading it. Nothing too big.

I designed my very own skin! It's called B-Lite. I uploaded it, but the site said that it had to be reviewed by moderators before it could be released, so I await their moderation before it is public. Since uploading, I made a few small changes and fixed things, so I could upload it again as a newer version.
It's a gray gradientized background, with simple black and white buttons. Setting the colour scheme to "Sea" yields a very nice and smooth result. I managed to add an image to speeddial, and I actually feel like I know what I'm doing while editing skins now.
I had fun designing it, and appreciate the result. I hope others will find it and enjoy it to, but it's still not public.
