Iris Dark Gtk Theme: v1.5 by TheVirtualDragon Iris Dark Gtk Theme: v1.5 by TheVirtualDragon
Iris Dark is a flat theme that uses varying shades and tones to create distinction and a modern experience. It supports Gtk 3.10, Gtk 2 (using the Murrine engine) as well as Granite Widgets.

Made a quick firefox userChrome.css to match:

Also, the Flattr icon set goes nicely with this theme…

Looks nice! I can't seem to get it to work here but I'm probably doing something wrong.
In the ~/.mozilla/firefox/ directory there is a profile folder it will have a unique name ending in .default like 2gnf23dk.default -- in that folder you need to make a "chrome" folder (if it doesn't exist) and inside that a file named userChrome.css (not the capitalisation) with the code I posted. Save and restart firefox

Ah thanks! That works and looks pretty neat! I was previously using this firefox theme (… but this is a nice alternative. Would it be okay if I posted this on the Google+ Iris page? I'll give credit of course.
*note the capitalisation
so it should be ~/.mozilla/firefox/profile.default/chrome/userChrome.css
replace profile.default with your unique profile name.

Bought the Theme!!! Very nice :)
Does it work on ubuntu 14.04 unity?
It's possible to install it over cinnamon DE?
Linux Mint 16

It should be but you may want to use Mint 17 which I believe will be based on Ubuntu 14.04, and consequently will have Gtk 3.10.
