What is the web 2.0 way to do buttons now?

For example I think bevels are out? Image

I also think blocks look good? Image

What is your opinion on the new trends for buttons?

new trends for buttons should be the same as old trends for buttons. Make it fit with the site design but provide visual feedback so people know its actionable. Work for legibility and understandability.

The concept of web 2.0 is a fad. Look to concepts of usability and architecture and your site visitors will thank you instead of thinking your site is outdated in 6 months.

I agree, that they should usable above all I think this is the most important with anything internet based. That why flash should be boycotted!

But I also think there is a big trend in design 2.0 and bevels and fades are fading with it for now.

I don't mind staying with the trends and updating my buttons after a couple years when trends will change again. I prefer to stay with the times.

In the most general sense, I tend to like glassy buttons like these....

But I agree with the posts above. There is no 'universal button' - every site will require its own button style, depending on the overall design, and the important thing is that they fit but can still be easily picked out.
