Great article. Only problem is, I installed Ubuntu Tweak (which is a great tool), but there's no option for Gnome-Globalmenu. Guess I'll just have to do this the old fashion way. No worries!

Firefox, and other apps use different rendering engine so it doesn't work with this programs, but we hope that will be fixed in near feature!
