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?

Yes, some people might indeed like the personal toolbar in NS 6.X (complete with highly US-biased commercial stuff on it !), but those who don't end up suffering by having the Home button on it rather than in Navigation Toolbar, meaning we lose the precious home button if we turn it off.

Seen those two words above - *Navigation Toolbar*. Why is what's clearly a navigation button - "Home" - doing on your Personal Toolbar ?! NS 4.X, quite correctly, never did this, so why should NS 6.X ? It's basically poor design in the chrome (both Modern and Classic) and really does need to be fixed.
