Classic Skin Now In Nightly Builds

Thursday June 22nd, 2000

Now that skin-switching is a reality in Mozilla, the developers have been working on a "Classic" skin for Windows, Linux, and Mac. The "Classic skin" aims to not only provide a more "Communicator"-like UI alternative for Mozilla, but also give users more platform-specific UI widgets.

If you run Windows, you can try out the "Classic" skin in the current nightly builds. Start up Mozilla, go to the prefs dialog via Edit > Preferences, visit the Appearance > Themes pref panel, choose "Classic" from the list of available skins, and click the "Apply Theme" button. After a moment of whirring, Mozilla wil be skinned with the "Classic" theme. There's still a lot of work to be done on the skin, but it's worth checking out.

Thanks to Colin Stewart, Yoshi, and Christopher Cook for this news.

The old Mozilla Classic browser looked very similar to the current classic theme, it used the same widgets as 4.x but had less buttons on the toolbar a bit like the current classic skin. Mozclassic was also skinnable but not to the extent of the current mozilla, mozclassic used native widgets whenever possible
