It's gotta be something with how your browser interprets PNG-8 images,
because they're identical in both Photoshop and in Firefox 3.0
(Linux). 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

subtle that it's not noticeable?
