Modern 2.0

Wednesday August 23rd, 2000

Netscape has begun working on landing the new modern skin for both Mozilla 1 and Netscape 6. The current plan is to dump the current modern skin when the new one has fully landed.

While the skin looks better than the first version of Modern, we think this time could be better spent on improving the Classic skin, which is preferred by the majority of users, rather than working on a skin that has already been shunned by most in the community. What are they thinking?

You can set bookmarks to point to files on your hard drive too. You can even make bookmarks that run bits of JavaScript, if you like to get down and get funky with "javascript:" URLs.

There are only two differences between bookmarks and Home:

1) Home is always called Home, and can't be renamed. Whereas bookmarks are usually the title of the linked page, and their names can be edited.

2) The browser always starts at home, if you set it to Start At Homepage. If it's set to Start At Blank Screen, though, this is pretty unimportant.

Neither of these differences are particularly major. The homepage is just a bookmark you can't rename.
