Skinning Mozilla Tutorial Part 3 Now Online
Wednesday June 7th, 2000
Part 3 of our tutorial on skinning Mozilla is now online at the ChromeZone. In it we start the process of skinning Mozilla's navbar. If you haven't already, please check out the first two installments of the series. In part one we introduce you to the Mozilla "chrome" directory structure, and some of the key files involved in creating a skin. In part 2 we start the process of skinning Mozilla by changing the style of the menubar. Together they will give you a good introduction to the process of creating a Mozilla skin, and prepare you for the work done in part 3.
As I understand it, neither current Win32, nor X, nor current MacOS, include native alpha blending.
Windows 2000 includes alpha blending; MacOS X / Aqua includes alpha blending. But I doubt Mozilla has any features that require these.
So what's the deal? Where does it work properly? It would be insane if it didn't work in Win32. (Ok, so I could just test it on Windows at least...)
