-- IMPORTANT --
This rainmeter skin is old. It was made years ago and hasn't been updated much since. It probably still works but it might be a bit clunky compared to more recent skin suites.
Maybe Superbar will see an update at some point but I currently have no plans for one.
-- Description --
SuperBar 1.0 is finally here! With an extra .2 added all for you sake.
If you haven't already done so please download the newest version of Rainmeter, 1.3, from rainmeter.net before you install this suite, you will not be able to install it on older versions.
With SuperBar you have everything you need I one neat, nice looking, minimalistic and easily customizable bar at the top of you screen.
The bar comes in several colors and all items can be moved around and put where you like them.

-- FAQ --
Q. Will you please add a foobar controller?
A. No. Just use the foobar plugin in foo_winamp_spam found here chronial.de/foobar2000/foo_win…
and you can control it with the winamp controller.
Q. Will you create a reader for Hotmail or Yahoo.
A. No, I would if it was possible but there doesn't seem to be a way.
Q. Will you do a more advanced and good looking notes skin?
A. Well, maybe... feel free to give me a good reason why a more advanced one is needed
-- Tips & Tricks --
-Customized the SuperBar by clicking the gear on the right side of the bar.
-Customized DropDowns for Items such as Apps, Gmail and Facebook by opening the DropDown (Click the Item on the bar) and click the gear in the bottom right corner of the DropDown
-Some Items has special actions when their icon is right or middle clicked, for example, right-clicking the Media Controllers will open the player for that control and a middle click will cycle trough the controllers (iTunes, Winamp, WMP), this also applies to the clock which will switch between 24h and 12h format.
-Some Items display more info in a tooltip if you hover the mouse over their icon, for example the media controllers will show song info and the battery monitor will give more detailed information.
-Click the battery monitors icon to get access windows power plans
-Click the wifi monitor to open the network and sharing center
