Try this I'm not sure this is supported by all browsers.

Yes. That link shows IE-only code that does not work in any other browser, although I think Konqueror might use some of it. There are more important things to do than this.

ok.Using this I can change only the colors of scrollbars.But I need to change the shape too. I want to change the default rectangular toolbar to an oval shaped one.

Try this I'm not sure this is supported by all browsers.

You can't.

The scrollbars look and shape is defined by the window manager of the Operating System / Desktop Environment. It is not browser specific. You can't change the shape of the system scrollbars.

You can, however, look into using Flash or even creating a javascript scrollable area. I was thinking of doing one myself, where you contain a larger div within a smaller one with overflow:hidden set. Then you can use javascript to move the larger div up or down depending on events. It's a lot more complicated than that, but the general idea is there.

But anyway, what you're aiming for is not possible. Forget about changing the scrollbar shape.
