MetaTheme is a project dedicated to unification of appearance between
different graphics toolkits, such as GTK and QT.
The program is designed as a thin layer between toolkits and theme engines, creating unified API by which each theme engine can draw. The result is that every application uses the same code for drawing, making the appearance same across different applications. MetaTheme also adjusts behaviour a bit, so the overall effect of unification is impressive.
Some applications have their own toolkits which are used only by themselves. Cardinal examples of such applications are Mozilla, Firefox and OpenOffice. They provide support for pixmap themes, and popular themes exists for them.
Though as they are pixmap based, you can't easily change how they look. Particularly, it's quite impossible to change color theme. Not everyone likes the default. Also, the behaviour of these toolkits is unaffected, so the application may behave differently than other applications.
There is planned support for Firefox (and maybe Mozilla too) in future. For
OpenOffice, you can at least try the KDE integration build of it.
