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?

With my little 'pet project' called 'AMI' (the Alternative Menu Initiative) I just managed to implement some customization of the Navigation toolbar. It now supports 'Pictures And Text', 'Pictures Only' and 'Text Only' buttons. It is also possible to show or hide any of the available buttons you wish. So it is possible and not much XUL nor JavaSript really. The tough part is making sure other skins also still work .... The customization I offer with AMI only works for the Classic skin.

I'm still working with the M17 build and I've read that some on/off customization has now turned up in the nightlies...
