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?

#5 Do you really know that?

I know a lot of people are very vocal about their hatred for the `modern' skin, but can you actually show some kind of evidence that the classic skin `is preferred by the majority of users'?

I don't really like the (old) modern skin either, but when mozilla finally became easily themable, I tried out the classic one, and quickly realized what a clunky-ass piece of shit it was. I'm glad they're actually trying to make something better.


p.s. Online polls don't count
