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?

Just for the record, Netscape is not stretching their current resources (such as Ben Goodger) any thinner to do this new modern skin. They are hiring new developers to take on this task. Coincidentally, I have just been hired by Netscape to be one of those developers, and will be moving to CA next week to get started. There is one other job opening in the UI group to work on skins if anyone else out there is interested.
