New Start menu Windows 8 Skin and windows 7 skin+ Even more customization!

ViStart now includes a brand new Start menu Windows 8 skin. Times are changing and ViStart is changing with them! When reprogramming ViStart I made a crucial decision, instead of just making a new layout like Windows 8 for ViStart I decided to make even that customizable by themers too. Themers now have complete control of the start menu giving them the power to customize all elements within ViStart, meaning there should be even more diverse start menu skins deveing developed in the community!

New Ultra Blur feature!

The best start menu replacement for Windows 8 just got better! A feature that has been forever sought after in ViGlance is finally here. You asked for it, you got it - ultra blur. It took several test builds in the nightly lab to make a refined blur that's just right and still compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7 that doesn't impact performance like some other start menu replacements out there.

Launch Programs in Windows 8 faster than ever before

ViStart dramatically decreases the time taken to search for programs in windows 8 by indexing your start menu. Then you can simply type part of the program into the start menu and ViStart will "instantly" find it.

Find files faster than Windows 8

ViStart not only indexes programs but also files as well. Just type the file you are looking for and in miliseconds ViStart will return results (Up to 4 times faster then the orignal Vista start menu and faster than the original Windows 7 start menu too).
