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?

#42 i guess it should be 3d..

i find that one has to really get used to the radical two-dimensionality of the modern skin.. i mean, everything has a 3d look, why is the "modern" skin so *utterly* two-dimensional? the new one is still quite unique but goes some way in that direction.. works for me, though the home button should be added.. i rather find the k-meleon buttons too small than the mozilla ones too big.. and since the thing is skinable, we'll see skin libraries (like the one for neoplanet) anyway.. maybe there's a point in shipping the final nc6 with a "classic" skin as default so that it's more recognizable and easy to switch for average customers.. just my two pence..
