The CSD Initiative

Last Updated on December 10, 2018

CSD Initiative is an initiative to get as many applications as possible to drop title bars in favor of client-side decorations.

The goal of the initiative is for as many apps as possible to have the following properties:

  • No title bar
  • Native-looking close/maximize/minimize icons
  • Respects the setting for showing/hiding minimize and maximize
  • Respects the setting for buttons to be on the left/right side of the window

Chromium has recently shipped GNOME-style client-side decorations in v63, and Firefox has them in experimental CSD builds.
