    What browsers would you like computability with? Like do you want us to go as far back as IE 6, FF1, Safari 2 etc…?

    @Mike:- Yes. Even if you don’t win, your theme will be displayed. Besides, if your theme is good and if you want it to be distributed as a free theme, we can do that as well.

  11. Mike left a comment on April 29, 2009 at 9:31 am |

    Are all of the themes going to be displayed even if they don’t win? I would like to submit a theme but if it doesn’t win, would still like to be recognized for my efforts.
