Bug Description

A consistent feedback in reviews of Download Monitor has been that it is lacking in visual design, particularly where the use of colours is concerned. Download Monitor uses colour coding for 'downloads', 'uploads' and 'total'. The colours used currently are:

    Downloads: #FF0000
    Uploads: #00FF00
    Total: #0000FF

These should be changed to something more palatable. Feedback on what these colours should be is very welcome, especially from anyone with visual design expertise.

the new colours looks very good but now the overview tab is ugly (you should remove the arrows or at least make them smaller)
