I even copied a part of one image and put it on top of the other to test :) Either way, they're supposed to be identical because I haven't modified the tab in those pics. There might be of course be a difference since Photoshop had to compress them to indexed color, but they're still supposed to look the same. Btw, did you like the gradient in http://www.oljud.se/files/haiku/4_dark_act_border.png or is it so subtle that it's not noticeable?
