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?


#39 Exactly!

Let there be 50 skins. Everybody is different, and choice is always good. But realistically, Mozilla needs to be careful. The default skin will have to carefully put together. It is just inevitable that most people who download the browser will stick to the default skin. This has to appeal to the majority of users, period. And I absolutely agree with the point made above, make switching skins easy and prominent on the interface.

I do like the new modern skin much better than the old creation, but would likely stick with Classic. Just my preference.
