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?

#33 What I'd like to see- smaller and hide-able

Honestly, I played with Kmeleon last night, and apparently there is actually a nice feature on IE. I could combine all the stuff I wanted on one tiny bar. The thing I dislike most about the current Mozilla skin is how big those darn buttons are. I like the "tiny" option on Netscape, and would love for the toolbar to be out-of-the-way as much as possible. heck, here's an idea: make the top bar auto-hide, like the taskbar. Go to the top, it's there. Pull off of it, watch it disappear. That would be _real_ nice. And color me as one of the people who thinks the new one looks a bit better, even if the buttons are huge.
